Over the summer, YIMBY reported on applications for a 28-story, 296-unit residential building with retail space at 45-40 Vernon Boulevard, in Long Island City’s Hunters Point neighborhood. Renderings surfaced last week of the ShoP-designed project, which will actually include two additional new buildings, taking the form of smaller 14- and eight-story structures. Also, the existing and dilapidated four-story Paragon factory will be redeveloped rather than razed. A zoning variance must first be obtained, and besides the Paragon factory, other warehouses will need to be demolished. Simon Baron Development and Quadrum Global are developing.
Back in August, excavation began for G&M Realty’s planned 48- and 41-story, 1.2-million square-foot mixed-use development at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, in Long Island City. Now, foundation work is underway at the site, according to The Court Square Blog. HTO-Architect is designing the project, which will include 1,116 residential units and 39,765 square feet of retail space. Completion is expected in the winter of 2017.
Developer Eli Hemway has purchased the three-parcel assemblage at 1215 Fulton and 10-16 Halsey Streets, in southwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, for $18.5 million. The development site boasts 160,000 square feet of development rights. It includes the two-story Slave Theater and a brick warehouse structure, according to The Real Deal, and plans for the site have not yet been disclosed.
Earlier this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 428 St. Marks Place, in St. George on Staten Island, and now the developer is demolishing the site’s dilapidated 2.5-story wood-frame structure, DNAinfo reports. Developer Anthony Guglieri is currently taking the project through ULURP and plans to begin actual construction in 2016. The project will measure 4,675 square feet in total, and units will be condos, averaging 853 square feet each. A 410 square-foot retail unit will take up the ground floor. Frank Martarella’s Staten Island-based Think Design Architecture is the architect of record.
Near the end of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 109 East 115th Street, in East Harlem, and now Curbed has the project’s reveal, in the form on an on-site rendering. Permits were approved earlier this year, and the project will measure 27,706 square feet in total, including a 5,392 square-foot community facility on the ground floor. Residential units will begin on the second floor and measure an average 700 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. ACNY Developers Inc. is developing and Midtown-based HTO Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected in mid-2016.
