Developer Lions Group NYC plans to erect two high-rises on either side of Jackson Avenue. The site of Jackson West at 27-01 Jackson Avenue is cleared and would be ready for excavation as soon as the material currently stored at the lot is moved out of the way. Its sibling, Jackson East across the street at 26-32 Jackson, appears to still be in early proposal stages, with no work underway at the site and no permits filed.

A 13-story residential tower is set to rise at 27-51 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City. The 34-unit project would stand on what is possibly the city’s single hottest development block, where six different projects are under construction or in planning. Lions Group is the developer. Building permits list Vincent J Tomasino of Jackson Bounty LLC as the owner. The project’s residential component would measure 31,996 square feet, resulting in units averaging 941 square feet. The ground level would house 1,555 square feet of retail.
Applications filed in mid-2014 have been approved for 139-141 Bowery between Broome and Grand Streets, where Global Joint Venture’s plans an 11-story, 16-unit mixed-use building. Measuring 34,900 square feet, retail space will occupy the ground floor, while office space will take up floors two through five. A 550 square-foot medical facility will also be located on the second floor; residential units will occupy floors six and above. Three-story buildings currently occupy the site, and Raymond Chan is designing.
The burgeoning new immigrant population in Woodside, Jackson Heights and Corona has driven a small construction boom in those neighborhoods, and one developer has decided to capitalize on the area’s growth with an eight-story hotel at 64-06 Queens Boulevard in Woodside.
“11th Street Condominiums LLC” has filed applications for a seven-story, 42-unit residential building spanning the lots of 46-14 – 46-20 11th Street, in Long Island City. The project will total 40,035 square feet of residential space, and if the LLC’s name hints anything, condominiums will average roughly 950 square feet. Raymond Chan is designing, and an existing two-story warehouse must first be removed.
