The 189-foot-tall, 22-story reinforced concrete edifice of 291 Livingston Street appears to have recently topped out. YIMBY last covered the Downtown Brooklyn building several years ago and reported that this will become a 100-key hotel. A rendering on the construction fence depicts a very bold pattern of black and white stripes in an almost Dazzle camouflage-esque configuration on the party walls. Hello Living is the owner of the lot after purchasing the site for $11.1 million, and is developing the project with Aview Equities. Gene Kaufman Architect is the architect of record.
Workers have begun pouring the foundations for 23-20 Jackson Avenue, a nine-story mixed-use hotel in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by KSQ Architects and developed by The Vorea Group, the corner property will yield 85,851 square feet of retail, offices, and a 72-room hotel operated by San Francisco-based hotelier Sonder Corp.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story commercial building at 2241 Church Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Located between Flatbush Avenue and Bedford Avenue, the interior lot is two blocks west of the Church Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Also nearby is the Church Avenue station serviced by the B and Q trains. Nehalkumar Gandhi under the Church Avenue Capital LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Metallic exterior façade panels now cover the entirety of the northern face of 12 East 48th Street, a 161-room Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel in Midtown East. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Hidrock Realty, the slender reinforced concrete building is located between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue and is flanked by two low-rise structures.
Work is continuing on The Fifth Avenue Hotel, an addition and renovation at 250 Fifth Avenue in NoMad. Designed by Perkins Eastman, PBDW Architects, and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and developed by Flaneur Hospitality, the project involves the construction of a 230-foot-tall, 24-story structure and the renovation and conversion of an adjacent 115-year-old bank building designed by McKim, Mead & White.
