Back in March, renderings were revealed of the 15-story, 43-unit residential building under development at 41-32 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Now, foundation work is nearly complete, The Court Square Blog reports, which means the structure can begin rising above street level. The new building, dubbed Steel Haus, will encompass 43,808 square feet upon completion. Its residential units, which will be rental apartments, should average 800 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, storage space for 23 bikes, private residential storage, and a rooftop recreational area. The Hakimian Organization is the developer, with ARC Architecture + Design Studio serving as the architect. David Howell Design is in charge of designing the interiors. Completion is expected in early 2017.

Tomer Erlich, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 511 Lafayette Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, located around the corner from the Bedford-Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. The structure will measure 11,484 square feet and its residential units should average 789 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Each floor will host two apartments, although the bottom two units will feature additional space in the cellar, and one of the fourth-floor units will include space in an upper penthouse level. Robert Bianchini’s Forest Hills-based ARC Architecture + Design Studio is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide site’s former three-story building was demolished earlier this year.
Tomer Erlich, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 1141 Lafayette Avenue, in central Bushwick, located two blocks from the Kosciuszko Street stop on the J train. The structure will measure 11,440 square feet, which means its residential units should average 817 square feet apiece, indicative of relatively large rental apartments (for new construction in the area). Robert Bianchini’s Forest Hills-based ARC Architecture + Design Studio is the architect. The 37-foot-wide assemblage consists of a vacant lot (1141 Lafayette) and a four-story townhouse (1143 Lafayette), which received demolition permits earlier this month.
TCX Development is planning a 15-story, 72-key hotel at 92-18 150th Street, located at the corner of Archer Avenue in downtown Jamaica, strategically located two blocks from the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer Station on the E/J/Z trains and five blocks from the Jamaica hub station on the Long Island Rail Road. The project, which does not currently have new building applications with the city’s Department of Buildings, should measure 35,000 square feet, with hotel rooms averaging 250 square feet apiece, Commercial Observer reports. It will feature a 2,000-square-foot rooftop bar and a 1,500-square-foot restaurant. ARC Architecture + Design Studio is responsible for the design. The developer has already demolished the site’s single-story predecessor. TCX acquired the site for $1.7 million in August of 2015.

Amenities include private storage spaces, storage for 23 bikes in the cellar, a gym, and 1,131 square feet of rooftop recreational space. Robert Bianchini’s Forest Hills-based ARC Architecture + Design Studio is the architect of record, and David Howell Design is responsible for the interiors.
