Seewell Realty, based in Scarsdale, N.Y., has filed applications for a seven-story, 15,624 square-foot medical office building at 63 Audubon Avenue, between West 168th and 169th streets in Washington Heights. The offices, in the form of community facility space, will total 11,854 square feet in the building. It’s not known how many separate medical groups are expected to operate in the new structure, although the cellar level through the seventh floor will contain offices. Alexander Zhitnik, head of Chinatown-based Z Architecture, is designing the building. Demolition permits were filed back in 2014 to raze the existing three-story, two-unit wood-frame townhouse.
Development is starting to pick up in Rego Park, a suburban piece of eastern Queens nestled between Forest Hills, Corona, and Elmhurst. Today, we have a look at a rental building under construction at 97-45 63rd Drive, at the corner of 98th Street.
It was in July of 2014 that YIMBY brought you word of plans for the site of an office building at 199 Jay Street, at the corner of the small section of Nassau Street before the Manhattan Bridge ramps, in Downtown Brooklyn. A month later, we showed you a rendering of the project. Since then the existing building was demolished. Other than that, however, the project has barely pierced the ground, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, and it has a long way to go before it achieves its 33-story design.
When we last checked in with 21 West End Avenue back in 2014, only a few stories of the 43-story tower had risen above street level. Now, Dermot Company is putting the finishing touches on the 529-foot-tall building between West 60th and 61st streets, and YIMBY reader Tectonic swung by for a construction update.
