Permits have been filed for a 312,880 square foot mixed-use building at 1755 Watson Avenue in Soundview, Bronx. The project was made possible after the site was rezoned from R5 to R7A. R5 zoning allows for a floor area ration (FAR) development of 1.25, which would typically produce a three or four-story attached house. R7A zoning allows for 4.0 FAR, and a maximum height limit of 85 feet, the exact height of this new building. Azimuth Development Group is responsible for the development.
As YIMBY reported back in October, construction is nearly complete for the 12-story 280 Ashland Place, in the Downtown Cultural District of Brooklyn, and now, leasing has officially commenced. The project has been named Caesura, a term for the pause in the middle of a line of music poetry. Its next-door neighbor, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, gives the inspiration. Jonathan Rose Companies LLC is behind the building, which had previously gone by the address of 15 Lafayette Avenue.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 136-78 41st Avenue, in Flushing, Queens. The construction is three blocks away from the Main Street Station, the last stop for the 7 train in Queens. Two blocks away is the Flushing-Main Street Train Station, serviced by the Port Washington line of the Long Island Rail Road. Developer Hui Chen will be responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a three-story private school at 211-18 45th Drive, in the affluent neighborhood of Bayside, Queens.

YIMBY last reported on 45 Broad Street when workers arrived and barrier installation began back in September. Now, we have a few fresh renderings for the tower, which also depict what the inside of the open-air mechanical floors will look like. The supertall borrows the technique from 432 Park Avenue, and combined with the intricate bronze exterior, the resulting tower could be one of the most attractive additions to the Lower Manhattan skyline in several decades.
