The Asian Americans for Equality Community Development Fund (AAFE CDF) has filed applications for a seven-story, 88,749-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 133-04 39th Avenue, located at the corner of College Point Boulevard in downtown Flushing. The new building will feature retail space on the ground floor, followed by 18,142 square feet of non-profit community facility space on the second, third, and fifth floors, and office space on the fourth, sixth, and seventh floors. The retail and office space will add up to 42,986 square feet. A 72-car parking garage will be located underground. Midtown East-based JCJ Architecture is the architect of record. The 13,388-square-foot property is currently occupied by a single-story commercial building. Demolition permits were filed in April. The Flushing-Main Street stop on the 7 train is two blocks away.
Since standing four stories in height back in May, the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use complex under development at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street, in Greenpoint, has grown 12 stories, as seen in photos taken earlier this month by NY Construction Photography. The main tower will eventually climb to 392 feet above street level, with the entire complex to measure 716,982 square feet. There will be 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail and 3,802 square feet of medical offices. The floors above will host the residential units, averaging 894 square feet apiece, of which 20 percent (128 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises are the developers. Ismael Leyva Architects is behind the design and completion is expected by 2018.
Construction is underway on the fourth floor of the 17-story, 397-unit mixed-use building being developed at 515 Marin Boulevard, located between Eighth and Ninth streets in the Hamilton Park section of Jersey City. The construction update is possible thanks to a photo posted to the Forums. Dubbed Marin Residences, it will also feature 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Residential units will be located above, of which 20 percent (80 units) will be designated as affordable. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. A 261-car parking garage is also being built, in addition to a 30,000-square-foot public park directly behind the project. Kushner Real Estate Group and Claremont Properties are the developers. HWKN Architects is behind the design and completion is expected in late 2017.
A new design has been revealed of the mixed-use commercial building planned at 2837 West 8th Street (a.k.a. 626 Sheepshead Bay Road), on Coney Island. A seven-story, 161,000-square-foot building, dubbed Neptune/Sixth is now planned, Real Estate Weekly reports. It will feature retail space on the ground floor and a mix of office and community facility space on the upper floors. An 800-car parking garage will also be built, in addition to other public amenities. A slightly smaller four-story building was previously planned, revealed by YIMBY in October. The initial filings, which YIMBY reported on when they were submitted, have since been amended to reflect the new design. The former two-story commercial building was demolished in November and construction is reportedly now underway, with completion anticipated for late 2017. Cammeby’s International Group is the developer and S9 Architecture is behind the design.
The New York York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), with Staten Island Borough President James Oddo, has announced the master plan to redevelop the severely dilapidating Seaview Hospital complex at 460 Brielle Avenue, located in central Staten Island. The mixed-use redevelopment, dubbed Sea View Healthy Community, will include medical space, retail, residential units, and community facilities/public open space. Currently, the city is in the process of allocating funding for infrastructure improvements and upgrades. The NYCEDC is planning to launch the application processes, a formal Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI), for individual components of the redevelopment later this year. The campus sits within the New York City Farm Colony-Seaview Hospital Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission must approve the design of all of project’s components. So far, the LPC has approved plans for a two-story Meals on Wheels building.
