Permits have been filed for a six-story hotel at 1275 Pugsley Avenue in The Bronx’s Parkchester neighborhood. Located between Westchester Avenue and East 177th Street, the interior site is situated close to the Cross Bronx Expressway. Less than two blocks east is the Parkchester subway station, and two blocks to the west is the Castle Hill Avenue Station, both of which are stops on the 6 train. Jai Patel of Pride Lodging LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
A 510-foot-tall mixed-use tower designed by Gene Kaufman Architect was proposed for 265-267 Broadway a few years ago, and recently YIMBY checked in for an update on progress, or lack thereof. The Roe Corporation is the developer for the 144,244 square foot site, which is expected to rise a decent height above the surrounding Lower Manhattan skyline once complete. However, with no demolition yet evident, it appears this development may be as dead as a Thanksgiving turkey.
20 Times Square, aka 701 Seventh Avenue, is almost complete. The tower already has one of the largest LED screens in Times Square, spanning a whopping 18,000 square feet. In February, doors will officially open to the 517-foot, 42-story, 452-key Marriott Edition hotel, wrapped in glass panels and topped with the logo on its western and southern facades. Witkoff, Ian Schrager Company, Winthrop Realty Trust, and Maefield Development are the developers, while Platt Byard Dovell White Architects (PBDW Architects) is the project’s architect.
New permits have been filed for a four-story hotel at 1998 Webster Avenue, in The West Bronx. Located on the corner of main thoroughfare Webster Avenue and Alden Place, this site is close to Richman Echo Park. The lot is about three blocks from the Metro-North Tremont train station, and a 10 minute walk from the Tremont Avenue subway station, serviced by the B and D trains. Samir Patel is responsible for the development, who previously filed for permits for this site in 2016.
More than 130 hotel units are coming to East New York according to new construction permits recently filed by hotel developer Nehalkumar Gandhi. Located between Fulton Avenue and Atlantic Avenue, the two projects at 51 and 55 Sheffield Avenue will have convenient access to multiple mass transit options. The LIRR East New York station is four blocks away, as is the Atlantic Avenue subway station serviced by the L train.
