Tim Chan, operating under an Elmhurst-based LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, 29-unit mixed-use building at 73-02 Woodside Avenue, in northern Elmhurst. Located two blocks from 74th Street/Broadway stop on the E, F, M, R and 7 trains, the 27,285 square-foot building will have a 1,928-square-foot health care facility in the basement level. Residential units above will average 875 square feet each. Flushing-based Chang Hwa Tan is the architect of record, and three buildings must first be demolished.
Last November, developers Hartz Mountain and Panepinto Properties received a 30-year tax break for their 13-story, 240-unit mixed-use project at 3 Journal Square Plaza, in Jersey City’s Journal Square neighborhood. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is designing the building, which YIMBY can now reveal.
In 2014, YIMBY brought you new renderings of the 12-story, 105-unit mixed-use building planned at 470 4th Avenue/237 11th Street, in Gowanus, and now Brownstoner reports the building is four stories above ground, and rising. Adam America, Slate Property Group and Naveh Shuster Group are developing, while Aufgang Architects is designing. The project, located a block from subway stops for the F, G and R trains, will include 5,260 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, and a 2017 completion date appears likely.
In April of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Red Apple Group’s 15-story mixed-use building at 180 Myrtle Avenue, in Fort Greene, and a year later, the structure was two stories above street level and rising. According to Brooklyn Daily, the structure has topped out and slightly larger than originally planned. The building — dubbed The Margo — will have 228 residential units, 40 of which will be rented at below-market rates. The ground floor will feature 10,600 and 500 square feet of retail and community health space, respectively. Dattner Architects is designing, and completion is expected in the spring of 2016.
With formwork about to rise above ground level at Nordstrom Tower, the Smith + Gill-designed supertall’s plans seem to be finalized, pending possible adjustments at the very top. But other renderings for Extell’s site were created by several firms during the RFP process, and we now have images of proposals by Foster + Partners and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. While they will remain unbuilt, both versions of the building offer fantastical takes on the future of Midtown in their own right.
