Located in Long Island City at 27-29 Queens Plaza North, Queens Plaza Park will soon be one of the tallest skyscrapers in both Queens and New York City. It is also addressed as 29-37 41st Avenue. The 755-foot-tall, 67-story tower is nearing completion of its concrete foundations, and vertical ascent should begin sometime in the first half of 2019. A new updated design by Handel Architects was revealed back in April, and features a concave-shaped glass building. Selldorf Architects is designing the interiors while The Durst Organization is in charge of developing the 978,000 square foot tower.
New renderings have been revealed for 185 Broadway, which is imminently set to rise in Lower Manhattan. Designed by FX Collaborative Architects and developed by SL Green, the 31-story, 260,000 square foot, mixed-use and partially affordable building has had its site prep completed, as demolition of three previously extant low-rise structures at 183 Broadway, 187 Broadway, and 5-7 Dey Street has fully wrapped. Necessary air rights and financing to begin construction have also been obtained, and work is anticipated to start in the first quarter of 2019.
Washington Heights will soon be home to a grand-scale realization of a Lego-block-styled tower offering class-A office space, retail, and hotel components. “Radio Tower & Hotel,” located at 2420 Amsterdam Ave, has officially broken ground, and represents the first significant mixed-use development in Washington Heights in almost 50 years.
Proposals submitted to NYC’s Department of City Planning reveal a sizable mixed-use development coming to 47-15 34th Avenue in Astoria, Queens.
Since we last checked up on One Clinton Street, back in late August, it was only about nine stories above street level. Now, the 36-story residential tower is climbing past the halfway mark on its way to a 409-foot pinnacle. The Marvel Architects-designed skyscraper is being developed by Hudson Companies, and will span 295,000 square feet when finished. The triangular-shaped property sits at the northern confluence of Cadman Plaza West and Clinton Street, and is also known as 280 Cadman Plaza. Located in Brooklyn Heights, the building will have 134 units and 114 off-site affordable units. One Clinton Street Library will be built on the lower floors, replacing the site’s formerly extant Brooklyn Heights Library.
