Permits have been filed for a 20-story mixed-use building at 1230 Madison Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The site is ideally located for culturally engaged residents, as it is on the same block as the Guggenheim Museum, and just six blocks away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Six blocks away is the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, and 6 trains. Real Estate Equities Corporation (R.E.E.C.) is behind the applications.
Going east into the Long Island town of Mineola, a large 312-unit residential and mixed-use project developed by Sabre Real Estate has its first renderings. The building is called One Third Ave, and has 1,600 square feet of available retail space left at the southwest intersection of 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street. The property sits one block away from the Mineola Train Station, making it less than forty minutes away from Midtown. Steven B. Jacobs is the designer of the building, with units coming in one- to three-bedroom spreads with private terraces for penthouses.
Permits have been filed for two eight-story mixed-use buildings at 376 and 378 Flushing Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is right on the border with Williamsburg. The Flushing Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train, is nine blocks away. Manhattan-based Riverside Developers USA is behind the applications.
The newest Bjarke Ingels Group-designed project has now partially topped out. The taller 36-story component of the XI, at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea, has reached this milestone when just seven months ago, it was merely two stories high. With only a few months in between YIMBY’s visits, the enormous scale of the new building is quite shocking, as it rose incredibly quickly. The theatric nature of the twisting concrete sculpture certainly catches the attention of visitors from the High Line park, where many tourists are already snapping photographs. HFZ Capital Group is responsible for the development.
