Since foundation work was underway in April, construction on the 28-story, 236-unit residential tower under development at 1501 Voorhies Avenue, in southern Sheepshead Bay, has now reached 10 stories in height. The progress can be seen thanks to photos taken by Alex Ellefson for a Sheepshead Bites report. The building will eventually rise 321 feet above street level and encompass 279,942 square feet. The residential units will be a mix of condominiums and rental apartments, and should average 1,112 square feet apiece. Amenities include a 168-car parking garage, storage for 118 bikes, a fitness center, a pool & spa, a terrace on the second floor, and a sky lounge on the 17th floor. Muss Development and AvalonBay are the developers, while Perkins Eastman is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2018. The project is located directly east of the Sheepshead Bay stop on the B and Q trains.
