The Department of City Planning (DCP) is now reviewing proposals to construct two new affordable housing properties for seniors and a charter school in Arvene, Queens, a waterfront neighborhood on the Rockaway Peninsula. The proposed buildings will take shape along Beach 67th Street between Beach Channel Drive and Thursby Avenue.
Construction is now underway at 163 Beach 96th Street, a new 11-unit condominium building in Rockaway Beach, Queens. The building is designed by Michael Muroff Architect‘s New York City design studio and is expected to debut by the end of 2021.
The Department of City Planning is now reviewing an Environmental Assessment Statement and proposed zoning text amendments that would facilitate the construction of a large storage facility in Rockaway Beach, Queens. The proposed action would rezone the area from a manufacturing district to a mixed-use district with a commercial retail overlay.
Renderings from Fischer + Makooi Architects reveal a new mixed-use residential property at 133 Beach 116th Street in Rockaway Park, Queens. The asymmetrical, bifurcated structure comprises two vertical volumes split down the middle by private outdoor spaces associated with the residential component.
Renderings from THINK Architecture & Design were recently presented to the Department of City Planning in lengthy proposals to rezone a busy corner of Far Rockaway, Queens. The project comprises two adjacent parcels on Beach 67th and 68th Streets between Thursby Avenue and Beach Channel Drive. “Development Site 1” sits mid-block on Beach 67th Street and comprises six neighboring lots. “Development Site 2” is a through-block lot on Beach 68th Street with additional frontage along Beach 67th Street. Zoning amendments are required to facilitate all construction.
