Proposals submitted to the City by EMP Capital Group have revealed a new, nine-story mixed-use building in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The plans were prepared by Equity Environmental Engineering and include motions to rezone the six lot assemblage for residential and retail development.
New Rochelle recently granted approvals for the construction of what will be the largest-ever mixed-use development in the city’s history. Located at 11 Lawton Street, the dual-tower development will feature 143 condominiums, 453 rental units, and a 190-key hotel. Additional components include 8,102 square feet of restaurant and bar space, 2,953 square feet of retail space, and 627 on-site parking spaces.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 27-09 40th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. Located between 27th Street and 28th Street, the lot is four blocks from the 39th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. Gus Vorillas of First Elite Management is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction on 43-12 Hunter Street, now referred to The Cove, is nearing completion in Long Island City. The curtain wall has reached the top of the 18-story reinforced concrete structure and work is wrapping up on the ground floor façade and interiors. The Queens project is designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Rockrose Development, which purchased the site for $1 million back in 2006. Slade Architecture is in charge of the interior design. There will be 123 units, 37 units being affordable homes, or roughly 30 percent of the total.
The Margaritaville Resort is ascending swiftly at 560 Seventh Avenue in Times Square. Construction has passed the primary setback and workers are forming the floor plates for the main massing that will contain the hotel’s 234 rooms. Portions of the metal-trimmed glass façade have also begun to be installed on the tower, which will rise 29 stories. The project is designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties along with MHP Real Estate Services.
