Earlier this week we reported on demolition filings to make way for construction of the new Irish Arts Center. The permits were to clear away most of 726 11th Avenue to expand the center’s footing in Hell’s Kitchen. Now, YIMBY has the reveal for new renderings of how the IAC will look from 11th Avenue, with an apparent 40% decrease in square footage.
Demolition permits have been filed for 726 11th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. The site is expected to become the center for a new Irish Cultural Center, as reported by YIMBY in 2014. The Center was established in 1972 and has been operating out of a tenement building on West 51st Street since then, so the new space will offer a major upgrade.
Today, YIMBY has a look at plans for the restoration and expansion of Cort Theater, at 138 West 48th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. The building is in the heart of the Times Square Theater District, and was designed by Thomas W. Lamb, first opening its doors back in 1912.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for renderings of 76-28 Parsons Boulevard, in Flushing, Queens. The design, by Tan Architects, shows a low-rise residential structure with sixteen balconies, and evidence of a public terrace on the rooftop. The façade is defined by the balconies and several bands of brown, black, grey, and limestone.
Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 1548 72nd Street, in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the 71st Street Subway Station on the corner of Lt. Joseph Petrosino Park, serviced by the D train. The area is mostly residential, with some shops along New Utrecht Avenue. The Brooklyn-based firm New Empire Real Estate Development is behind the applications.
