The Bronx boom continues apace, and today, YIMBY has the reveal for building two of the Concourse Village West affordable housing project, designed by Aufgang Architects, which will rise at 702 Grand Concourse, in Concourse Village.
The transition zone between East Harlem and the Upper East Side is booming with new developments, and just last week, YIMBY featured an update on 1399 Park Avenue, on the corner of East 104th Street, which is close to topping-out. Today, we have another update by Tectonic on 302 East 96th Street, several blocks to the southeast, where superstructure work is also close to completion.
A Lexus service building is about to meet the wrecking ball for a mixed-use residential project, complete with its own automotive showroom. Permits have been filed for the twelve-story structure at 547 West 47th street, in Hell’s Kitchen. The site is one avenue east of the Hudson River Greenway, and three avenues west from the 50th street subway station, serviced by the A, C, and E trains.
The ongoing Downtown Brooklyn development boom has already resulted in three new “tallest towers” for the borough, with 388 Bridge, then AVA Willoughby, and now 333 Schermerhorn taking the title, at 607 feet to parapet. But while each of those projects stands just a few feet above the others, Extell’s Brooklyn Point, at 138 Willoughby Street, is going to top-out 68 floors and 720 feet above the streets below. Now, YIMBY has a look at new renderings that paint a much more vivid picture of the skyscraper’s eventual impact on the DoBro skyline.
Back in December of 2016, developer Hui Chen acquired 136-78 41st Avenue, in Flushing, for $9.32 million. While DOB applications have yet to be filed for the site, today, YIMBY has the first rendering for the project, which is being designed by Raymond Chan Architect, PC.
