Back in March of 2016, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 131-09 Fowler Avenue, in Flushing, Queens. Today, we have the reveal for the project, which has also been redubbed 131-11 Fowler Avenue.
Downtown Brooklyn’s Macy’s parking garage redevelopment is finally moving forward, and applications filed with the Department of Buildings show that the new tower will rise 664 feet and 51 floors to its rooftop. The existing structure will be reduced down to one floor, then rebuilt into the tower. There will be a 150-car garage in the cellar, 99,652 square feet of retail between the cellar and first floors, and then 586,141 square feet of residential space up above, to be divided amongst 476 condominiums. Tishman Speyer is developing, and Hill West Architects are behind the plans, which were first spotted by Brownstoner.
In August of 2015, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 35-08 146th Street, in Murray Hill, Queens. In January of 2016, we revealed the first renderings for the 15-story project. Today, we have an updated look at the design, which has seen substantial revisions since the initial images were released.
Technology and urbanity have a long and tempestuous relationship, with the former’s advancement over the past century having had an occasionally deleterious effect on the latter. This has been most evident when periods of previously unimaginable progress have yielded inventions like the automobile, which in turn led to the temporary collapse of many inner cities. Now, as online retail continues to outpace brick and mortar shopping, technology has once again laid siege to the fabric of New York City, threatening the time-honored local bodega, and potentially undermining a segment of local retail that has value far beyond its shelves.
West Harlem has been booming with infill development over the past few years, and YIMBY recently revealed two new residential buildings coming to Convent Avenue, in the immediate blocks northwest of West 125th Street. Now, renderings are out for another new project in the neighborhood, at 370 West 125th Street, between Morningside and St. Nicholas Avenues.
