Permits have been filed for a two-story broadcast building at 122-04 Roosevelt Avenue inside Flushing Meadows Corona Park, in Queens. Details are not available for the precise location, but the most likely area is part of a parking lot near the Flushing Meadows train yard along Roosevelt Avenue. The United States Tennis Association is responsible for the development.
Construction has been slow-moving this year for the JACX development in Long Island City, Queens. Two 26-story towers are rising at 28-07 Jackson Avenue and 28-10 Queens Plaza South, and the pair will yield new office space marketed toward the technology sector. Images for the site reveal construction has risen as high as the twelfth floor, an increase of eight floors since January. Tishman Speyer and Qatari Diar are responsible for the development.
Five buildings have now been demolished at 75-83 Nassau Street, just a block away from the Fulton Street transportation hub in the center of the Financial District. The activity will make way for Lexin Capital’s proposed 40-story residential skyscraper designed by ODA. New building permits are still awaiting approval, but recent activity on site suggests increasing momentum toward actual construction.
Across from Piers 25 & 26, 388-390 Greenwich Street has stood for nearly 30 years as one of the tallest skyscrapers in Tribeca. Located just north of the Borough of Manhattan Community College, it is has been home to Citigroup’s New York headquarters since their repurchase of the building in 2016, after selling to SL Green for $1.6 billion back in 2007. The 39-story tower at 388 Greenwich Street sits connected to an adjacent nine-story building at 390 Greenwich Street, which Citigroup has also leased. Both components are in the midst of a major renovation of the lower exterior facades, led by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, with interior architecture by Gensler.
For a third time, DXA Studio approached the Landmark Preservation Commission with a proposed design for 827-831 Broadway, a landmarked building in the Union Square area. The latest design is a large departure from the faceted glass of previous proposals. Several major alterations have occurred to drastically change the entire project to appease the LPC, ultimately leading to approval this past Tuesday.
