UPDATE: According to architect James Davidson from SLCE, “This image does not remotely comply with present or future massing constraints available for this site and was meant merely for internal circulation, not for public view. The 1QPS full block site is built full under today’s zoning regulations and cannot support such a structure.”
Permits have been pre-filed for a seven-story residential building at 639 Foster Avenue in Kensington, Brooklyn. The site is nine blocks from the 18th Avenue subway station, serviced by the F train. Ten blocks away is the Newkirk Plaza subway station, serviced by the B and Q trains. Solomon Feder of Key Developers NY is listed as responsible for the development.
Renderings are out for a 74-story tower at 42-50 24th Street, in downtown Long Island City, Queens. If built, the structure would be a major addition to the borough’s vertical profile, with a speculative minimum height of 750 feet, based on double-height retail at the base. If it ends up being any higher, the structure would become the tallest structure in Queens. Its current competitor is 23-15 44th Drive, a condominium tower expected to rise 752 feet, and is located three blocks to the south. The tallest proposed building for the borough was formerly 29-37 41st Avenue, though developer Durst downsized the project to just 710 feet.
Permits have been pre-filed for a 23-story mixed-use building at 98-04 Queens Boulevard in Rego Park, Queens. The site is two blocks away from the 63rd Drive subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Avi Matatov of RB Realty Capital LLC is responsible for the development. Matatov purchased the site from the previous developers, Bahar Corporation, for $12 million in mid-January 2018. Previous plans had involved building a seven-story mixed-use building.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 33-10 38th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. The site is one block from the 36th Street subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains, and four blocks from the 39th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. Ravi Patel is listed as behind the applications.
