Normally, when YIMBY hears about development in eastern Queens, it’s happening in Flushing or Jamaica. But over the weekend, we stumbled across permits for a new apartment building in Briarwood, a middle-class neighborhood wedged between Jamaica and Kew Gardens.
A year ago, Exclusive Homes New York filed plans for a new residential building on a skinny lot at 13 East 128th Street in Harlem. Now, YIMBY has the first look at the project, which has been designed by Issac and Stern Architects.
Another day, another new residential building planned in Long Island City. Last week we spotted plans for a nine-story development at 42-22 Crescent Street, between 42nd Road and the Queensboro Bridge approach.
At the intersection of the Upper East Side and Midtown East, there has been a surge of new development, starting with the newly-iconic 432 Park Avenue, by Macklowe Properties. And now we have the first full rendering of the same developer’s plans for 200 East 59th Street, designed by CetraRuddy, thanks to the YIMBY Forums, where EB-5 materials for the project have surfaced. YIMBY previously revealed the first renderings of the building back in November, but this image is the first to show the whole tower, which will feature wraparound terraces on every floor.
A structure dating back to the Civil War will be returned to residential use. The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved a plan for 353 Sixth Avenue (a.k.a. 353 Avenue of the Americas), one which will see the structure grow a little.
