Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 214 15th Avenue in the affluent Bay Terrace subsection of Bayside, Queens. A large parking lot-centric commercial center is just five blocks away, but the nearest public transit, the Queens Village train station serviced by the LIRR, is 7 miles away, or a 1-hour commute by bus. Dun Xing Zhang is listed as responsible for the development.
Concrete is finally starting to rise for the soon-to-be 800-foot tall residential tower at 130 William Street in the Financial District. The building has surpassed the significant brunt of foundational work, and is now beginning to progress above ground level. Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.
Construction has officially begun for the Lively, an 18-story mixed-use building at 321 Warren Street, Jersey City, New Jersey. The site is by the Hudson River waterfront, and just four blocks away from the Grove Street train station, first stop along the PATH trains in New Jersey. Fogarty Finger Architecture is responsible for the design.
New building permits have been filed for a seven-story hotel at 35 Port Richmond Avenue in Elm Park, Staten Island. The site is distant from public transport, though it is about one mile from the first exit off the Bayonne Bridge, which connects with New Jersey. Three blocks from the lot is the waterside Faber Park, a small scenic public green space. M.S. Savani Architecture is listed as responsible for the design.
For the second time this week, we can report that a supertall in Manhattan is reaching its peak. One Manhattan West’s concrete superstructure has topped-out 995 feet above Midtown. Brookfield is behind Manhattan West, which will create six buildings and a large public plaza, producing a total seven million square feet of office, residential, and hotel space.
