Today, YIMBY has a photo update on the site of the Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh. Foundation work is moving along for the soon-to-be 22-story residential building that will rise adjacent to the historic structure, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 2954 Brighton 6th Street, in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. The location is seven blocks away from the beach boardwalk, and nine blocks away from Ocean Parkway, serviced by the Q train. Spot Realty New York City will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for two five-story residential buildings at 88-30 and 88-34 54th Avenue in Elmhurst, Queens. The sites sits four blocks away from the Grand Avenue-Newton Subway Station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. The 440,000 square foot Queens Place Mall is also only two blocks away, designed by SOM Architects, and completed in 1965. Xiu Qin Shi will develop 88-30, and Bi Jin Huang will be responsible for the development of 88-34.
Permits have been filed for a two-story commercial building at 308 East 126th Street in East Harlem, Manhattan. The site is six blocks from the 125th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 4, 5, and 6 trains. One block further is the Harlem Metro North train station. The project is located right next to Harlem River Drive, the northern extension of FDR drive.
The blocks of Hudson Yards are the current hotspot for office construction in New York City, with supertall after supertall rising from nothing. But Midtown East might be the only location in Manhattan where major office projects are rising alongside existing fabric. While One Vanderbilt is only beginning to rise above 42nd Street, work is substantially further along at 425 Park Avenue, where Norman Foster’s vision is now climbing past the stump remaining from the site’s former occupant.
