Rockaway Beach is about to get a boutique hotel designed by Wythe Hotel architect Morris Adjmi. New building applications were filed Tuesday for the six-story project at 108-20 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, between 108th and 109th Streets.
New development rarely happens in Vinegar Hill, a tightly zoned, tiny neighborhood wedged between Dumbo, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and the East River waterfront. But the owner of a parking lot 251 Front Street hopes to get an upzoning to construct a nine-story apartment building there, according to documents filed with the Department of City Planning.
Two years ago, the Landmarks Preservation Commission floated the idea of clearing its backlog of items from before 2010 by simply de-calendaring all of them. That was not well-received, to put it lightly. So, they devised a series of steps to actually address those 95 items. That process nearly came to an end today, with the designation of 10 new city landmarks.
The state Attorney General banned Shiraz Sanjana from selling condominiums for 16 months in 2014, but that didn’t stop the embattled developer from buying a development site at 695 6th Avenue in Greenwood Heights once the ban expired. Today, YIMBY has a look at the three-story apartment building rising at the corner of 21st Street.
In the spring, YIMBY unveiled new renderings for 70 Vestry Street, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed condo project under construction by the West Side Highway in Tribeca. Now we have a construction update on the 14-story building, courtesy of prolific photographer Tectonic.
