YIMBY passed by the site of 27-49 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, which is supposed to be a 146-foot-tall residential building. However construction progress remains paused around the halfway mark. The 4,000-square-foot site rests among a number of taller surrounding skyscrapers and would be a modest addition to the neighborhood. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, work started nearly two years ago and is planned to, hopefully, top out as a 14-story superstructure with 9,873 of residential space split among 37 homes. iX Construction is the general contractor.
Construction has topped out at 249 East 50th Street, a 15-story residential building in Turtle Bay, Manhattan. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects and developed by Tun Kyaw, the building stands 151 feet tall and will span 50,000 feet.
Construction is complete and tenants have begun moving into The Kent House, a seven-story mixed-use building at 187 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between North 3rd Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue, the project is designed by Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. and developed by CW Realty Management, which purchased the site for $43 million. The 140,036-square-foot structure contains 96 homes.
Permits have been filed for an 11-story mixed-use building at 91-03 169th Street in Jamaica, Queens. Located between 91st Avenue and Jamaica Avenue, the interior lot is closest to the Jamaica Center – Parsons/Archer subway station, serviced by the E, J, and Z trains. Zhi Hui Li under the ZHL Realty LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
