After the Port Authority tried and failed to find a developer to build over the Lincoln Tunnel approach on West 33rd Street, they’ve decided to develop part of the site themselves. The agency has filed plans to erect a nine-story residential building on a parking lot at 431 West 33rd Street, overlooking a depressed stretch of roadway that runs between 10th and 11th Avenues.
The hulking remains of Greenpoint Terminal Market once dominated West Street in Greenpoint, after a mysterious 10-alarm fire destroyed much of the former industrial complex in 2006. But the low-slung factories are finally giving way to towers. One developer has filed new building applications for a 19-story residential development at 27 West Street, between Calyer and Quay Streets, a block south of the old Terminal Market.
Rockrose closed on $270 million worth of financing last month for its two-tower, 974-unit development at 43-25 Hunter Street in Long Island City, and now the complex is rising fast near Court Square and Sunnyside Yards.
The blocks between Court Square and Queensboro Plaza might have more new construction than anywhere else in the city, and today YIMBY has new renderings for one of the hood’s biggest new buildings, the 45-story tower rising at 23-10 Queens Plaza South.
Back in January, YIMBY reported that a 40-story tower was coming to 532 Neptune Avenue, in Coney Island. Now we have a few new renderings for the project, thanks to a tipster, which is being designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Cammeby’s International Group.
