In exciting news for Sunset Park, plans for 6208 8th Avenue are now pushing closer to reality. A major proposal for the former railroad site in Brooklyn would create over one million square feet of mixed-use development. The structures would include commercial, residential, and community facility space. The site is next door to the 8th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N trains. Since YIMBY last checked in on progress, the design has not changed, but new information has now been released providing specific details for the proposal.

Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 136-78 41st Avenue, in Flushing, Queens. The construction is three blocks away from the Main Street Station, the last stop for the 7 train in Queens. Two blocks away is the Flushing-Main Street Train Station, serviced by the Port Washington line of the Long Island Rail Road. Developer Hui Chen will be responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 43-46 39th Place, in Sunnyside, Queens. The site is a block from the 40th Street-Lowery Street Station, serviced by the 7 train. The lot is right on the corner of Queens Boulevard, which is populated with retail and restaurant storefronts for several blocks, and YIMBY now has the reveal for the design, by Raymond Chan Architects.
Most of the hotels coming to Chelsea are on the larger side of things, but today, YIMBY has the reveal for a smaller project that is in the works for 20 West 15th Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues on the southern edge of the neighborhood. YIMBY first reported on the site when applications were filed back in August of 2014, when we asked when the hotel madness overtaking the area would stop (three years later, it rages unchecked).
YIMBY previously reported on 46-20 11th Street in Long Island City back in January, when new building applications were filed for the site with the DOB. Now, the reveal is out, thanks to The Court Square Blog, which spotted the on-site renderings yesterday. The project will rise seven floors and total 40,035 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst 42 units, with a design by Raymond Chan Architects. 11th Street Condominiums LLC is developing, and the site’s former two-story warehouse has now been demolished, with completion is anticipated by the spring of 2019.
