YIMBY passed by the site of 27-49 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, which is supposed to be a 146-foot-tall residential building. However construction progress remains paused around the halfway mark. The 4,000-square-foot site rests among a number of taller surrounding skyscrapers and would be a modest addition to the neighborhood. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, work started nearly two years ago and is planned to, hopefully, top out as a 14-story superstructure with 9,873 of residential space split among 37 homes. iX Construction is the general contractor.
Construction is complete and tenants have begun moving into The Kent House, a seven-story mixed-use building at 187 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between North 3rd Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue, the project is designed by Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. and developed by CW Realty Management, which purchased the site for $43 million. The 140,036-square-foot structure contains 96 homes.
Construction has partially topped out at 45-18 Court Square, a six-story addition to an existing structure in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Perkins + Will and developed by King Street Properties, Knight Newmark Frank, and GFP Real Estate, the property will house a life science facility called Innolabs. The adjoining six-story building is also in the process of being renovated and connected to the new development.
Work is wrapping up on Two Blue Slip, aka 41 Blue Slip, the tallest structure to rise so far in the ten-tower Greenpoint Landing waterfront development in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The glass curtain wall is substantially complete on the 40-story residential project, which is designed by Handel Architects and developed by Park Tower Group and Brookfield Property Partners. Leasing for the 421 units launched back in February.
Construction has risen past the podium section at One Bell Slip, a 368-foot-tall residential tower in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Brookfield Property Partners and Park Tower Group, the 31-story building will bring 413 units to the 22-acre, ten-tower Greenpoint Landing riverfront development. The structure is rising just to the north of the completed 37 Blue Slip.
