Last week, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new building coming to 70 Atlantic Avenue, in Cobble Hill, at a site formerly known as 339 Hicks Street. It currently houses a building for Long Island College Hospital, but that will soon be demolished to make way for an NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Clinic, which we can now reveal.

But construction is beginning to pick up again in the eastern Queens neighborhood, and we have renderings for that sizable project at 148-46 Hillside Avenue in Jamaica.
