Although we’d love to see more residential development in downtown Jamaica, much of the new construction in the eastern Queens neighborhood is tied to hotels and tourism. The latest new hotel is coming to 97-26 147th Place, on a lot a few blocks south of the Jamaica LIRR station.
It’s been over a year since YIMBY first reported on four new apartment buildings coming to 335-341 Nostrand Avenue in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Now we have renderings for the 24-unit project, which is under construction between Gates Avenue and Quincy Street.
When we last checked in on the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed condominium building under construction at 20 East End Avenue, between East 80th and 81st streets in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side, it had just topped out. That was back in November. Since then, as we can see in photos from our friend Tectonic, the façade is nearly finished.
Another vacant lot in East Harlem is about to be filled in by new construction. An eight-story residential building is planned for 400A East 118th Street, between First and Pleasant avenues.
L+M Development is nearly finished demolishing J&R Music and Computer World’s former flagship at 23-32 Park Row in the Financial District to make way for a 54-story residential tower, and we have the first rendering of the planned skyscraper.
