The new building will feature retail space on the ground floor, followed by 18,142 square feet of non-profit community facility space on the second, third, and fifth floors, and office space on the fourth, sixth, and seventh floors. The retail and office space will add up to 42,986 square feet. A 72-car parking garage will be located underground. Midtown East-based JCJ Architecture is the architect of record. The 13,388-square-foot property is currently occupied by a single-story commercial building. Demolition permits were filed in April. The Flushing-Main Street stop on the 7 train is two blocks away.
Happy Living Development has filed applications for a 12-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 441 West 37th Street, in Midtown West. The project will measure 19,441 square feet in its entirety. Part of the ground floor will contain a 357-square-foot doctor’s office. The rest of the ground floor and the second floor will host a single duplex unit, followed by full-floor apartments on the third through eighth floors. Two duplex apartments will be located across the ninth through 12th floors. The units should average 1,647 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.

Since standing four stories in height back in May, the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use complex under development at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street, in Greenpoint, has grown 12 stories, as seen in photos taken earlier this month by NY Construction Photography. The main tower will eventually climb to 392 feet above street level, with the entire complex to measure 716,982 square feet. There will be 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail and 3,802 square feet of medical offices. The floors above will host the residential units, averaging 894 square feet apiece, of which 20 percent (128 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises are the developers. Ismael Leyva Architects is behind the design and completion is expected by 2018.
A new design has been revealed of the mixed-use commercial building planned at 2837 West 8th Street (a.k.a. 626 Sheepshead Bay Road), on Coney Island. A seven-story, 161,000-square-foot building, dubbed Neptune/Sixth is now planned, Real Estate Weekly reports. It will feature retail space on the ground floor and a mix of office and community facility space on the upper floors. An 800-car parking garage will also be built, in addition to other public amenities. A slightly smaller four-story building was previously planned, revealed by YIMBY in October. The initial filings, which YIMBY reported on when they were submitted, have since been amended to reflect the new design. The former two-story commercial building was demolished in November and construction is reportedly now underway, with completion anticipated for late 2017. Cammeby’s International Group is the developer and S9 Architecture is behind the design.
After crews broke ground in September of 2015, foundation work has since been completed and steel beams are now rising for the nine-story, 136-unit affordable-supportive housing project at 233 Landing Road, in the West Bronx’s University Heights section. YIMBY can bring you the construction update thanks to a photo posted to the Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, dubbed Landing Road Residence, will encompass 131,355 square feet. It will contain 135 below-market-rate rental apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, plus one for the superintendent. The facility will also contain a 200-bed homeless shelter, with social services included, for adults who are employed. The affordable and supportive housing components will have separate entrances and amenities. The Housing Development Fund Corporation (HDFC), partnered with various city and state agencies, is developing the project. Edelman Sultan Knox Wood Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
