Newly filed construction applications have revived plans filed in 2013 at the vacant parcel spanning 529-543 President Street, in Gowanus, where RJ Hospitality is to construct a five-story, 101-key hotel measuring roughly 31,100 square feet. Raymond Chan is designing, and the site’s former single-story predecessor had been demolished in 2008.
While both 1 and 21 West End Avenue are already under construction, the Riverside South master plan’s “Building 1,” on the corner of West 61st Street and Riverside Boulevard, does not yet have an announced design. YIMBY has now obtained images showing Arquitectonica’s submitted plans, which show two different versions, one of which features a dramatic sloped cantilever outwards towards the West Side Highway.
In the fall of 2013, architect De-Jan Lu filed plans for a seven-story, 133-unit apartment building at 125 Borinquen Place in Williamsburg, only a block and a half from the BQE. Now YIMBY can reveal a slew of renderings for the development, which will fill a triangular lot at the corner of Borinquen, South 2nd and Rodney Streets.
New building applications have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use project at 31-12 38th Avenue in Long Island City, half a block from the N/Q tracks and just north of Sunnyside Yards.
The volunteers behind Roger That Garden in Crown Heights have spent the last year and a half fighting to save their little plot at Rogers Avenue and Park Place from a developer, but it looks like the garden’s days are officially numbered. A new building application was filed today for a four-story residential building on the property at 115 Rogers Avenue, also known as 749 Park Place.
