Plans have been revealed for 670 new affordable apartments within two buildings in Downtown Far Rockaway, Queens. The project comes as part of the neighborhood’s rezoning announced last September. The NYC Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) along with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), and the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) jointly announced the project.
New permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 717 Sutter Avenue in East New York, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Eight blocks away is an identically named station, serviced by 2, 3, and 4 trains. An anonymous LLC is listed as behind the applications.
Too many renderings come through that resemble the same mold of international style. Today, Citiscape Consulting has revealed an unusual design for a long-term care facility at 1508 Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The post-war Japanese Metabolism movement, a style that integrated organic material and architecture, was what inspired the 16-story building’s distinctive look.
Today YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for yet another major new development coming to Astoria, in Queens, showcasing design by Aufgang Architects. The depiction shows the building’s façade along 30th Street. Concrete panels will be installed in a rectilinear pattern likened to a minimalist refinement of row houses, which projects the sheer scale of the city block-sized structure. The site is just ten blocks away from the Astoria Boulevard subway station, serviced by the N and W trains.
In 2006, there was a 10-alarm fire that destroyed the historic waterside Greenpoint Terminal Market. A few small buildings remained onsite before they were finally demolished in 2017. Now, the site is cleared for development and Greenpoint is about to yield yet another major addition to New York City’s skyline, named Calyer Place, after the neighborhood street. Renderings have been released, revealing a scenic landscaped public esplanade overlooking the Manhattan skyline, along with five mixed-use structures populating the site. M&H Realty LLC is responsible for the development.
