A forthcoming development from Cape Advisors and Wainbridge Capital will soon introduce more than 500 rental apartments to Astoria’s blossoming waterfront area. Located at 30-77 Vernon Boulevard, the construction site spans 522,000 square feet or approximately two-and-a-half acres of land.

New renderings reveal the glossy, reimagined interiors of 554 Eighth Avenue, known today as 554 On the Eighth. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture for The Expansion Group, the renovation is specifically intended to attract tenants from the technology sector. The 21-story pre-war building is located on the southeast corner of Eighth Avenue and West 38th Street and contains approximately 325,000 square feet of commercial area.
The first stages of excavation at 25 Columbus Drive are apparent as the asphalt from the former parking lot is now being ripped up. This will become the future site of a new mixed-use complex that will rise 626 feet tall and 57 floors high. Handel Architects is designing the proposed structure, while Mack Cali is the developer of the downtown Jersey City project. A total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately-funded public school for levels pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza will soon be built.
Permits have been filed for a 23-story office building at 141 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Located between Gold Street and Prince Street, the lot is one block north of the DeKalb Avenue subway station, serviced by the B, Q, and R trains. Gregory Jaffe of Savanna Fund is listed as the owner behind the applications.
