Chelsea has long been a center of creativity in Manhattan. Recent developments have been strongly inspired by that history. Many of the city’s most notable projects with distinctive architecture style have popped along the new High Line Park, including the Frank Gehry-design IAC Building, and Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street. The neighborhood’s latest impending icon is 76 Eleventh Avenue, a pair of twisting mixed-use towers under development by HFZ Capital. Construction is moving quickly for all components, and thanks to photos by Tectonic, we can see the latest progress.
A new look is out for the residential building rising up next to the historic Long Island City Clock Tower. The development, rising at 29-37 41st Avenue, is expected to have the distinction as the Borough’s tallest building, bringing with it a new retail center, plenty of tenant amenities, and half an acre of public park space at its base. The building is located just a block away from the Queens Plaza subway station, an intersection with the E, M, and R trains. The 7, N, and W trains can be accessed two blocks away. The project is positioned to become a focal point of Queens’ rising downtown district in Long Island City, and the Durst Organization is responsible for development.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 1230 Prospect Avenue, in Foxhurst, The Bronx. The site is seven blocks away from the Freeman Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Badaly Architects is responsible for the design. The development will also be just two blocks away from another project by the firm, at 872 Home Street.
Today YIMBY has another exclusive new look at the imminently-opening 29-22 Northern Boulevard, officially dubbed ALTA LIC, in Long Island City, Queens. The 43-story building stands across the street from Dutch Kills Green Park, a small, pleasant public park that is rising in relevance. The Queens Plaza subway station is just one block away, and the Queensboro Plaza station is four blocks further, giving future tenants access to the E, M, N, R, W, and 7 trains.
An anonymous developer has filed for a rezoning to make way for a nine-story mixed-use building at 57 Caton Place, in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway station, serviced by the F and G trains. The site is located a block away from Machate Circle, near the southern point of the expansive Prospect Park.
