22-Story, 117-Unit Residential Project Now Planned At 24-16 Queens Plaza South, Long Island City

Back in July of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a 14-story residential building at 24-16 Queens Plaza South, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City, but now a new developer, Greystone Property Development, has acquired the site for $23 million. Greystone plans to add 17 stories to the existing five-story commercial building, Crain’s reports. The 22-story, 100,000-square-foot project will include 117 residential units and 3,836 square feet of ground-floor retail space, according to building permits approved back in December of 2015. The residential units would spread across 86,529 square feet of space for average units of 740 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Amenities include an outdoor pool, a gym, meeting rooms, and a roof terrace. Woods Bagot is designing. The developer has already secured $39 million in construction financing.

Construction Update: 199 Jay Street, Downtown Brooklyn

It was in July of 2014 that YIMBY brought you word of plans for the site of an office building at 199 Jay Street, at the corner of the small section of Nassau Street before the Manhattan Bridge ramps, in Downtown Brooklyn. A month later, we showed you a rendering of the project. Since then the existing building was demolished. Other than that, however, the project has barely pierced the ground, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, and it has a long way to go before it achieves its 33-story design.

In early 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the multi-building, 223-unit residential conversion of the former Cabrini Medical Center, located in Gramercy on the block bound by Second and Third Avenues and East 19th and 20th Streets. Now, Curbed NY has the latest details and renderings of the project, dubbed Gramercy Square, which include slight modifications to the exterior and slightly different unit counts. At 215 East 19th Street, the main 16-story hospital building will get a new façade and will get 130 condominiums, down from 140. The building at 225 East 19th Street will be transformed into 48 residential units, down from 54. The new-construction building at 220 East 20th Street will have eight full-floor units, and the last property at 230 East 20th Street will be converted into 37 units. The entire development will have 12,000 square feet of amenity space. Chetrit Group, Clipper Equity, and Real Property Group are developing, and Woods Bagot is designing.
