New renderings have been unveiled for “The Shoppes on 82nd Street,” located between Ithaca Street and Roosevelt Avenue on 82nd Street, at the border of Jackson Heights and Elmhurst, in Queens. The outdoor mall, currently under construction, is served by five subway lines in the area, including the E, F, M, and R trains at 74th Street and Broadway, as well as the 7 train at the 82nd Street station. The project is situated in a prime shopping district of Jackson Heights, with more than 20 national and regional chain stores, and is also easily accessible by car via the Grand Central Parkway, Brooklyn Queens Expressway, and the Long Island Expressway.
Led by Rogers Stirk Harbours + Partners, the UK-based design team has proposed a large development project in the West Historic Chelsea District. Consisting of three adjoining construction sites, the firm is seeking to create a new eleven-story building at 550 West 27th Street, as well as an expanded upper section on top of 260 Eleventh Avenue and an exterior renovation of 549 West 26th Street. The proposal is now under review by the Landmark Preservation Committee as of January 10, 2019.
When YIMBY last checked in on 260 Kent Avenue, the building had only risen a few floors over Domino Park. Now, construction workers are bridging the gap between the two reinforced concrete structures that make up the bottom half of the structure. The 435-foot tall residential tower is being designed by COOKFOX, and will yield 462,000 square feet of space. There will be 330 rentals, 66 affordable units, and 150,000 square feet of office space spread among 22 floors, as well as 13,000 square feet of retail space at the base. Recent photos show the first level of the upper half being assembled.
Permits have been filed for a 70-foot tall mixed-use building at 8902 5th Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Located on the corner of 5th Avenue and 89th Street, the former car showroom and sales lot is three city blocks south of the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the R train. Under 8904 5th Ave LLC, Michael Marino is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction has officially topped-out at Bronx Commons, a highly anticipated development that will introduce a mix of affordable housing, a new music hall, retail tenants, and outdoor recreation space. The project is in The Bronx’s Melrose Commons, between East 162nd and ast 163rd streets, on the west side of Elton Avenue.
