On Thursday, at a little before noon, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for 99 Hudson Street in Jersey City. Located on a site bounded by Hudson, Grand, Greene, and York streets, the 900-foot-tall mixed-use condominium tower will likely be the tallest building in the state and one of the tallest residential buildings in the entire country. The event not only kicked off construction, but also provided a venue to show off new renderings of the project.
The glassy towers of North Williamsburg are slowly giving way to a more interesting wave of development on the south side of the neighborhood. Today, YIMBY has a look at a pair of connected mixed-use buildings at 69 Hope Street and 22-26 Marcy Avenue, right next to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
In the fall of 2015, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission held a series of four special public hearings to deal with its backlog of 95 items that have been on its calendar since before 2010. Now, the next step, a public meeting, will be held on Tuesday, February 23.
When we last checked in on 267 Rogers Avenue in southern Crown Heights, the planned five-story rental building was barely more than a hole in the ground. Now walls are up, and the building has finally started to take shape.
Back in May of 2015, YIMBY posted renderings from SLCE Architects featuring the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed 220 Central Park South. Since then, construction on the building has made major headway, with the structure now reaching past its tenth floor, and now we can post the building’s final look, thanks to an ad placed by developer Vornado in REBNY’s new booklet.
