Permits have been filed for a new four-story school within walking distance of Yankee Stadium. The lot, at 316 East 165th Street, is currently used for parking. The project is being developed by Bronx-based CG Educational Holding Corporation, and the school will be twelve blocks away from the 167th street stop on the B and D subway lines.
A single story warehouse is about to be torn down to make way for a six-story mixed-use structure in the southernmost corner of Williamsburg, at 334 Flushing Avenue.
A parking lot in Long Island City, Queens, is about to see a lot more foot traffic. The cars will be replaced by children at 40-11 28th Street, where a new public school is going to be built, right next to the existing Newcomers High School. The developer and architect will be the NYC School Construction Authority.
Sunset Park has seen a substantial amount of infill proposals in the past few months alone, and that trend is only set to continue, with plans now in the works for a commercial redevelopment at 617 62nd Street. Angelo + Anthony Ng’s Architects Studio NY will be designing the site, which will yield a five-story building with a fairly impressive envelope.
When it comes to the Manhattan skyline, 217 West 57th Street, aka Central Park Tower, will soon reign supreme, reaching 1,550 feet above the streets below. But a new concept proposed by DFA would provide Central Park with an actual tower of its own, though its existence would be limited to a temporary duration.
