YIMBY checked in on 141 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a forthcoming 23-story office building. Demolition has concluded and the land sits awaiting excavation for the 360-foot-tall structure, which is being designed by Fogarty Finger Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record. Gregory Jaffe of Savanna is listed as the owner on the applications that were filed in June 2019.
Permits have been filed for a 50-story mixed-use skyscraper at 45-03 23rd Street in Hunters Point, Queens. Located at the intersection of 23rd Street and 45th Avenue, the corner lot is steps from the Court Square subway station, serviced by the E, M, G, and 7 trains. Tavros Capital under the Court Square 45th Avenue LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Work is wrapping up on The Symon, a 13-story condominium building at 70 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. Colberg Architecture is the architect of record, while Lonicera Partners, Orange Management, and The Davis Companies are the three developers. The project is located between Boerum Place and Court Street and is steps away from the faux subway entrance to the subterranean New York Transit Museum. Studio DB designed the interior and exteriors of the building.
Construction is getting close to topping out at Queens Plaza Park, aka Sven, a 755-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 27-29 Queens Plaza North in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by The Durst Organization, the reflective glass curtain is also nearing the halfway mark of the concave-shaped superstructure. Selldorf Architects is the interior designer for the 67-story project, which is alternately addressed as 29-37 41st Avenue.
The Cove at 43-12 Hunter Street sits in the middle of Long Island City, Queens. The detailed grey-colored curtain wall of windows and metal panels cover the entire 18-story, reinforced concrete edifice. Right now the final touches remain on the ground-floor envelope, sidewalk, and interiors. SLCE Architects is the designer of the building and Slade Architecture is in charge of the interior design. Rockrose Development is the developer of the triangular site, which was previously purchased for $1 million back in 2006. The Cove will yield 123 rental units with 37 units being affordable homes, or roughly 30 percent of the total inventory.
