Jersey City’s ongoing development boom has chiefly been focused along the waterfront, but the tendrils of new construction have also started to wrap their way across increasingly distant swaths of the city, including 485 Marin Boulevard, in Hamilton Park. There, HWKN has designed an 18-story and 397-unit rental development for KRE Group, which is now almost complete.

With 175 Greenwich Street nearing its opening day and 200 Greenwich Street hopefully expected to begin construction within the next few years, most of the World Trade Center’s rebuilding is nearing completion. But one major hole in Downtown’s fabric still remains, at the site of the former Deutsche Bank Building. Plans for a pot-bellied skyscraper had been proposed around the time of the tower’s demolition, but in the years since, the plot had seemingly been forgotten, and is currently covered in asphalt. Today, YIMBY has a major update on the site, thanks to zombified plans from Chinese developer Dalian Wanda Group, which would yield a new residential and hotel supertall designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.
Back in February, YIMBY reported on filings for a new residential building at 1893 Crotona Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. Now, we have the first look at another new project coming to the same block, at 1899 Crotona Avenue, designed by Badaly Architects, and under development by Paul Gjonaj.
Large developments don’t often come to the blocks of Broadway as it snakes through Upper Manhattan, but today YIMBY has an update on 4790 Broadway, which we first covered back in January of 2017. Since then, the City has moved forward with development plans, selecting Fogarty Finger and Andrew Berman Architects to design the project, now revealed through official renderings.
Back in January, YIMBY posted a new rendering for Red Apple Group’s 3514 Surf Avenue, in Coney Island. Since then, we’ve spoken with the site’s developer, John Catsimatidis, who offered an even fresher image of the project, as well as some additional insight into what’s happening across the neighborhood and Brooklyn.
