In 2006, there was a 10-alarm fire that destroyed the historic waterside Greenpoint Terminal Market. A few small buildings remained onsite before they were finally demolished in 2017. Now, the site is cleared for development and Greenpoint is about to yield yet another major addition to New York City’s skyline, named Calyer Place, after the neighborhood street. Renderings have been released, revealing a scenic landscaped public esplanade overlooking the Manhattan skyline, along with five mixed-use structures populating the site. M&H Realty LLC is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a four-story medical facility at 86-55 Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst, Queens. The site is three blocks away from the Grand Avenue-Newton subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. The developer, Flushing-based Justice Avenue Tower LLC, has another project right next door, at 88-08 Justice Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 2033 Eat 17th Street in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Avenue U subway station, serviced by the Q trains, and one stop away from a transfer to the B train. Subhi Bukai is listed as behind the applications.
Just south of the still-exposed train yard that gave the Hudson Yards neighborhood its name, progress is being made on another two new mixed-use skyscrapers. While teasers have been shown before, the first full renderings are now out for the towers planned at Block 675. Douglaston Development will be responsible for 601 West 29th Street, and Lalezarian Properties is behind 606 West 30th Street.
Permits were first filed for a mixed-use building by King’s USA Group at 70-40 45th Avenue in Elmhurst, Queens back in 2016. Now, new applications show a major update. The site is located along the major residential Queens Boulevard thoroughfare. Eight blocks away is the Roosevelt Avenue subway station, serviced by the 7, E, F, M, and R trains.
