A new mixed-use development is coming to Roosevelt Avenue in western Queens, which divides Elmhurst from Jackson Heights. The seven-story project would replace a collection of small shops and restaurants at 77-02 Roosevelt Avenue, on the corner of 77th Street and in the shadow of the elevated 7 train.
Through a deal with the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), BRP Companies is planning a 38-unit mixed-use building at 841-847 St. Nicholas Avenue, located on the corner of West 152nd Street in Hamilton Heights. The new building will measure 32,470 square feet, DNAinfo reported. All of the project’s apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. The Dance Theatre of Harlem will also have studio space on the ground floor. New building applications have not been filed at this time. The vacant, 7,063-square-foot site is located within the Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill Northwest Historic District, meaning the Landmarks Preservation Commission has to approve the new building.
A rendering has been revealed of the nine-story, 29-unit mixed-use building under development at 41-21 23rd Street, in the Court Square section of Long Island City. The image was spotted on-site by The Court Square Blog. The latest building permits indicate the new structure will measure 33,233 square feet and rise 92 feet to its main roof, excluding bulkhead elements. There will be 1,493 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels, followed by 29 apartments across the second through ninth floors. The units should average 799 square feet apiece. Great Neck, N.Y.-based property owner Amir Haghani is the developer and Michael Kang’s Flushing-based firm is the architect. Completion is expected in early 2018.
Construction is now nine stories above street level on the 11-story, 71-unit residential building under development at 41-15 23rd Street, in the Court Square section of Long Island City. A rendering has also been spotted on-site, courtesy of an update by The Court Square Blog. The latest building permits have the new structure measuring 65,806 square feet and rising 122 feet to the top of its bulkhead element. The apartments should average 742 square feet apiece, although it’s unclear whether rentals or condos are in the works. Brooklyn-based property owner Isaac Schwartz is the developer and Karl Fischer’s SoHo-based firm is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in the summer of 2017.
An anonymous Staten Island-based LLC has filed applications for three three-story, two-family houses at 695-703 Huguenot Avenue, in Woodrow, a neighborhood located along Staten Island’s South Shore. The buildings will measure 3,842 square feet each. Across all three, the units should average a family-sized 1,638 square feet apiece. The Staten Island-based firm Design Build Staten Island Inc. appears to be both the developer and architect. The 100-foot-wide, 20,001-square-foot lot was occupied by a two-story house until that structure was demolished in September. The property must undergo subdivision.
