The mini construction boom along Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst continues with permits filed for a nine-story apartment building at 46-02 70th Street, on the corner of the busy, 12-lane road.
The permitting process surrounding high-profile projects is becoming increasingly convoluted, with ‘dummy filings’ now commonly submitted prior to actual new building applications. This is particularly true at 217 West 57th Street, which still doesn’t have any on-site renderings. But luckily some new supporting documents have been filed with the city, revealing what appear to be the actual height numbers for the tower’s parapet and roof, confirming it will become the country’s tallest building.
The team behind Sherwood Equities’ luxury condo development at 500 West 21st Street sent along a time lapse video of the building rising next to the High Line, beginning in March of last year and ending last month.
After developing projects from one end of Harlem to the other, Heritage Real Estate Partners now has another building in the works at 531 West 159th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue in Washington Heights.
Another day, another huge Long Island City tower. Plans were filed Saturday for a 28-story mixed-use tower designed by SHoP Architects at 5-49 46th Avenue, on the waterfront in the Hunters Point section of the neighborhood.
