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).
Flushing has been booming with new developments, as demand for more space in New York City’s largest Chinatown has continued to increase. Today, YIMBY has the first renderings of another project coming to the neighborhood, at 135-01 35th Avenue, where Stenmax Realty Inc. is planning an eight-story mixed-use building.
While the towers rising by the Hunters Point waterfront and around Queens Plaza and Court Square command attention of Long Island City real estate watchers, a number of smaller-scale, residential projects are steadily rising along the quiet, rowhouse blocks between the two development hotspots. In our April 2014 interview, Sam Charney, who is currently developing The Jackson a few blocks to the south, referred to the neighborhood as Hunters Point East. One of such projects is the six-story, 24-unit [email protected] Murray Park South at 11-30 45th Road. Its concrete shell and metal-framed bulkhead have reached their highest point, and the structure awaits curtain wall installation. The building is developed by the Century Development Group and designed by architect Raymond Chan, who is credited with a handful of projects scattered around the neighborhood. Triborough Construction Services Inc. is the general contractor.
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.
