The city is about to rezone 11 industrial blocks along the heavily polluted Flushing Creek in western Flushing. But one developer has already filed new building applications for an eight-story, mixed-use project at 134-16 36th Road, on the corner of Prince Street and in the middle of the soon-to-be-upzoned piece of eastern Queens.
In November, the 28-story, mixed-use building under development at 215 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side, was at the 16th floor, and now Bowery Boogie reports the tower has topped out. The 245,264-square-foot structure stands 314 feet above the street level and will include hotel and residential portions. The building’s lower portion will sport a 370-key Public Hotel, with retail and restaurant space located on the ground floor. The upper portion will feature 11 condominium units, each averaging a spacious 3,035 square feet. Ian Schrager and Witkoff are the developers with Herzog & de Meuron as the design architect and Handel Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected later this year.
It was in November of 2014 that YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the mixed-use development at 60-130 Furman Street, dubbed Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park, in northern Brooklyn Heights. At the time, most the the structure was poured and by the spring of 2015, façade installation had started. Later that year, Toll Brothers City Living and Starwood Capital Group were finally able to top out the buildings after a lawsuit against the project was thrown out. The latest photos by Tectonic (h/t Curbed) now show that façade installation has completed and construction is wrapping up. The northernmost building, at 60 Furman Street, is a 10-story, 192-unit hotel dubbed 1 Hotel. South of the hotel is a 10-story condominium building at 90 Furman, and below that is a four-story condominium complex at 130 Furman. There will be a total of 106 condominium units and they will come in a variety of configurations ranging from one- to five-bedrooms. Marvel Architects is behind the design and occupancy can be expected later this year.
In the summer of 2015, the nine-story, 108-key Hyatt Hotel being developed at 27-07 43rd Avenue, in the Court Square section of Long Island City, was a single-story above street level. The Court Square Blog now reports the project is seven stories up. The new building will encompass 59,411 square feet and will have 49,589 square feet of commercial space. That works out to hotel rooms averaging a relatively spacious 450 square feet apiece. There will be a dining area on the ground floor and a gym, meeting rooms, and office rooms in the cellar, according to the Schedule A. Flushing-based Michael Kang is the architect of record and Prakash Patel, doing business as an anonymous LLC, is the developer. Completion is expected later this year.
Property owner Moshe Granit has filed applications for a nine-story, 30-key hotel at 38-38 11th Street, in northern Long Island City’s Ravenswood section, located four blocks from the 21st Street – Queensbridge stop on the F train. The new building will measure 15,664 square feet on the 25-foot-wide lot. There will be four or three hotel rooms on each floor, a lobby on the ground floor, and a breakfast area in the cellar. Individual hotel suites will average roughly 440 square feet apiece, which is relatively large. Jamaica-based Manish S. Savani is the architect of record. The 2,152-square-foot plot of land is currently vacant.
