Permits have been filed for an eight-story hotel at 118 New Jersey Avenue, in East New York, Brooklyn. Located three blocks from the J and Z trains at the Alabama Avenue subway station, the new development is between Atlantic Avenue and Fulton Street. Hamanjit Anand is listed as the owner behind the applications.
A desolate lot in The Bronx’s Mott Haven neighborhood is about to sprout a seven story mixed-use structure. Applications filed with the DOB show the new building will have 30,796 square feet of total construction area, within which, there will be 7,493 square feet of space for a community facility in the form of an ambulatory diagnostic center on floors two and three. There will also be 18,136 square feet of commercial space, to be divided between 73 hotel rooms, which will average under 250 square feet apiece. Michael Kang Architect, PC, is designing, and Manny Chadha of Vertu Hospitality LLC is the developer.
YIMBY previously reported on the filing of a job application for 11 West 37th Street back in July of 2014, when the project was first proposed. Now that the site’s old occupant has been demolished, work is fully underway, and a rendering has surfaced in the on-site construction signage.
New development rarely happens in Riverdale, a northwestern Bronx neighborhood where low-density zoning has protected wealthy areas full of single-family homes. But new, mid-rise buildings are allowed on several blocks along the Henry Hudson Parkway. A developer hopes to build on one such project at 3641 Johnson Avenue.
Earlier this month we released a brief update on Times Development’s 44-unit residential building at 27-05 41st Avenue in Long Island City. Today, we take a closer look at the six-story project that straddles the line between the high-rise Queens Plaza district to the south and the low-rise Dutch Kills neighborhood to the north. Structural steel has risen to the second level, while gray brick cladding already wraps around ground level columns. The project is designed by architect Michael Kang, who is also behind the nearby hotel at 40-47 22nd Street. Yan Po Zhu of Flushing-based River Bridge Tower LLC is listed as the owner. 6,970 square feet of ground level retail will contribute to the budding shopping corridor along the avenue.
