It was in December that YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the two-towered, 800-unit residential development under construction at 626 First Avenue, between East 35th and 36th streets in Murray Hill. The residential towers – now standing 41 and 48 stories – have since topped out, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The apartment units should average 906 square feet apiece and will be accompanied by 94,700 square feet of amenities, including a 38,000-square-foot public park. There will also be 4,100 square feet of ground-floor retail space. JDS Development Group is the developer of the 825,000-square-foot complex, and SHoP Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in early 2017.
YIMBY can barely keep up with all the new development happening in Flushing and its nearby suburbs, which are quickly expanding with new East and South Asian immigrants. Yesterday, we spotted plans for a six-story, mixed-use building at 35-20 146th Street, in Murray Hill, just east of Flushing.
Back in August, YIMBY reported on permits for 35-08 146th Street, a planned 15-story residential building with community facilities on the ground floor. Now we have renderings of the project, which would rise just east of Flushing in an under-the-radar Queens neighborhood called Murray Hill.
Last week, YIMBY reported on permits for a 14-story mixed use development at 144-74 Northern Boulevard in Murray Hill, just east of Flushing in Queens. Now we have the reveal for the unusual, two-tower complex that will rise between 146th Street and Parsons Boulevard.
The eastern borderlands between Flushing and Murray Hill, along Northern Boulevard in Queens, have become the new frontier for builders looking to make their mark in the fast-growing Asian neighborhood. Developer Oz Levi managed to find a large development site at 144-74 Northern Boulevard, at the corner of 146th Street in Murray Hill.
