Jenel Management has filed applications for a three-story, 35,217-square-foot retail complex at 22-06 31st Street, in the Ditmars section of Astoria. The cellar through third floors of the new building, to stand 54 feet above street level, will be used for entirely retail space. Steven B. Rabinoff’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The project will replace a collection of low-rise commercial-retail buildings that are currently occupied by CVS Pharmacy, Citibank, and a shoe retailer. Demolition permits were filed in December to knock down the existing buildings.
Back in November of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for an 18-story, 133-unit residential project at 122 East 23rd Street (a.k.a. 121 East 22nd Street), in Gramercy. Now, the developer has filed plans with the Attorney General’s office, estimating the value of the project’s condominiums to be $503.5 million, according to The Real Deal. The 275,387-square-foot complex will have two components. A main 18-story tower will be located on the corner of East 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue, while a connected 13-story wing will front East 22nd Street. The buildings will be connected up to the ground floor, where 12,125 square feet of retail space, divided between four retail condos, will also be located.
It was over a year ago YIMBY last checked in on the mixed-use project under construction at 626 Flatbush Avenue, between Fenimore Street and Hawthorne Street in Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood. At that time, the 23-story building had just topped out. Now, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, exterior work on the Marvel Architects-designed building is very close to done.
Jenel Management has filed applications for a 19-story, 195,705-square-foot office building at 540 Fulton Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. The 305-foot-tall project would contain 173,963 square feet of commercial space, a majority of which will be utilized for offices. The ground-floor office lobby will feature a storage room for nine bikes, and the office space will take up floors three through 19. Retail will fill the rest of the cellar, ground, and second floors. Jonathan Marvel’s TriBeCa-based Marvel Architects is the architect of record. The 110-foot-wide, 18,531-square-foot lot was, until recently, occupied by a two-story, 26,000-square-foot commercial-retail building. According to filings, the building was demolished in December of 2015.
Flushing-based leasee Grand Centurion Construction has filed application for a four-story, 28,231-square-foot multi-use commercial building at 54-08 74th Street, in eastern Maspeth, located three quarters of a mile from the Grand Av-Newtown stop on the M/R trains. The structure will feature 7,903 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The second through fourth floors will contain 11,044 square feet of medical space. The project will include a 2,200 square-foot parking garage in the cellar. Maspeth-based Architects Studio is the architect of record. The 7,903-square-foot lot, at the corner of Grand Street, is currently occupied by a single-story auto-service business. Demolition permits have not yet been filed.
