The Hallets Point megaproject is finally moving forward on the Astoria waterfront: a new building application has been filed for a 22-story mixed use complex at 26-01 1st Street.
YIMBY sat down with Bjarke Ingels to talk about his firm’s design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center. Despite public outcry following the change from the Norman Foster version of the tower, BIG’s innovative and forward-thinking building will truly respond to the human needs of its tenants, while also punctuating the Downtown skyline with a 1,340-foot take on a classic ziggurat. We’ve also obtained a few additional renderings of the soon-to-be icon’s impact on the cityscape.
Last year, All Year Management bought a warehouse at 41-21 28th Street in Long Island City for $17,000,000, and now YIMBY has the first look at the 16-story residential tower rising in its place between the Queensboro Bridge and 41st Avenue.
A piece of prime Williamsburg real estate at 150 North 12th Street has sat vacant, with only a foundation laid, since the recession swept away construction financing in 2008. But in the last few months, construction has re-started, and now YIMBY has a rendering for the seven-story rental building planned across the street from McCarren Park.
Last September, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new 21-story residential tower coming to 117 Livingston Street, which also has an address at 415 Red Hook Lane, in Downtown Brooklyn. Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners are behind the project, and Ennead Architects are designing the building, which YIMBY can now reveal.
