Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 150-13 89th Avenue in Jamaica, Queens. Located at the intersection of 153rd Street and 89th Avenue, the lot is near the Sutphin Boulevard subway station, serviced by the F train.

A recent split 2-2 vote by the Board of Standards and Appeals upheld the city’s Department of Buildings’ approval for 50 West 66th Street, which will become the Upper West Side’s tallest building. Local NIMBY group Landmark West was defeated in its assertion that developer Extell wrongly used mechanical space to bump up the 775-foot-tall height of the project without taking into consideration floor area restrictions.
Construction has topped out on Maverick, a two-building, 210-foot-tall residential project at 215 West 28th Street in Chelsea.

The structurally identical reinforced concrete superstructures are addressed as 215-219 West 28th Street and 221-229 West 28th Street.
