Renderings are out for a complete redesign of 609 Fifth Avenue, a large retail space on one of the busiest street corners in the country, in Midtown Manhattan. The modern façade will bring floor-to-ceiling windows to the base of the limestone structure.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 31-35 137th Street, in Flushing, Queens. The site is ten blocks away from the Main Street Subway Station, the final stop for the 7 train in the borough. Leavitts Park is half a block away from the location, bringing to the neighborhood a football field, baseball diamond, and four tennis courts. Mei Yong Xiao will be responsible for the development.
The blocks of Midtown West feature some of the largest new developments of any neighborhood in the Five Boroughs, with the Moinian Group’s Sky containing the most apartments of any tower in the city, with over 1,100 in all. But just a few blocks to the northeast, the developer is nearing completion on a slightly smaller 164-unit building at 572 Eleventh Avenue, which will officially be named Oskar, and has now launched its teaser website.
An updated design has been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for 312-322 Canal Street, in the West Tribeca Historic District. The site is currently occupied by a two-story retail space, owned by the developer, Trans World Equities. An initial design proposal was submitted in 2011 by Paul A. Castrucci Architect, but was denied by the LPC after being deemed too bland for the area.
Permits have been filed for 275 West 146th Street in Harlem, Manhattan. The site is four blocks away from the 145th Street Subway Station, serviced by the A, B, C, and D trains. Flushing-based Automatic Contracting Inc. is listed as being responsible for the development.
