As the Long Island City boom continues into the end of the decade, several projects that were permitted back in 2014 are approaching their opening day. Among those is the 43-story 29-22 Northern Boulevard, located across the street from Dutch Kills Green Park and Queens Boulevard. Today, we have a fresh rendering for what it will imminently look like, as well as word that it has received an official name of ‘ALTA LIC’. The building’s address has also been modified, from the original 29-26 Northern Boulevard.
Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed use structure at 2741 Fulton Street, in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the Van Siclen Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Nine blocks to the West is the Broadway Junction Subway Station, serviced by the A, C, J, L, M, and Z trains. Fulton Developers will be responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a two-story mixed-use building at 45-12 Smart Street, in East Flushing, Queens.

The site is two blocks from the Flushing Hospital Medical Center. An anonymous LLC is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 758 East 219th Street in The Bronx’s Williamsbridge neighborhood. The site is just half a block away from the 219th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The surrounding area is predominantly residential, with some retail surrounding the Subway Station. Marjan Gjonaj, owner of the site, will be responsible for the development.
Yesterday, major news was announced regarding Mary Anne Gilmartin’s departure from Forest City Ratner, as she joined forces with Robert Lapidus and David Levinson to form L&L MAG, a new venture that will draw on the talents of all three executives and a host of other talent. The firm also launched its new website, which features a fresh rendering of the full build-out of the Pacific Park mega-project, surrounding Barclay’s Center in Downtown Brooklyn, which has undergone substantive changes to its final appearance, including the addition of what could become one of the neighborhood’s tallest towers.
