Second Phase of Prospect Plaza Affordable Housing Inches Toward the Finish Line in Ocean Hill

As the New York City Housing Authority struggles to develop its underutilized properties across the five boroughs, YIMBY revisited Prospect Plaza in Ocean Hill, Brooklyn, where the city tore down an entire public housing project two years ago. Now, construction is wrapping up on the second phase of affordable rental buildings that replaced the 12- and 15-story towers.

NYU Langone Medical Center Closes Deal At Essex Crossing Location, Lower East Side

Now that construction is getting underway on two buildings within the Essex Crossing mega-development on the Lower East Side, Site 6, located at 175 Delancey Street, will probably be the next to get started. Planned is a 14-story, 100-unit mixed-use building that will measure 177,950 square feet. New York University’s Langone Medical Center announced last summer it would be taking space in the new building, and The Lo-Down now reports a 15-year lease deal has been finalized for 55,000 square feet across three floors. The four-story podium will also contain 6,000 square feet of retail space. In addition, a 13,000 square-foot senior center will take up the fourth floor and will include a coffee shop called Think Grand Cafe. There will be 24,000 square feet of space for an education facility, although a tenant has not been selected. The base will be topped by a 4,000 square-foot outdoor garden and a 100-unit apartment tower. The residential units above will be rented exclusively to seniors.

Groundbreaking Ceremony To Be Held For 22-Story, 224-Unit Mixed-Use Building In Hallets Point, Astoria

In May of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the first building to be constructed at Hallets Point, the seven-building, 2,404-unit mega-development planned in western Astoria. Later that summer, we reported on the building’s applications, which call for a 22-story, 224-unit residential building with a 25,350 square-foot supermarket at 26-01 1st Street. Now, the Durst Organization is planning, on Thursday, to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the building, according to DNAinfo. The Dattner Architects-designed structure will encompass 520,913 square feet in total, 368,745 square feet of which will be residential space. Completion of 26-01 1st Street is expected in 2017.
