Let’s take a look at the biggest upcoming real estate projects filed in NYC, over November. As complied by the Real Deal, the top ten projects include three Brooklyn projects, two Manhattan projects, two Queens projects, and three Bronx projects. Here are the top seven for the month:
1) The largest project filed last month was Hope Street Capital’s plan for a 10-story residential building at Dumbo. Led by Jeffrey Gershon, the development company purchased the land at 98 Front Street from the Jehovah’s Witnesses for $60 million. ODA Architecture is designing 165 apartment units which will span 145,322 square feet. The property was one of the multiple sites that the Jehovah’s have been selling as they move their headquarters upstate to Warwick.
2) Second on the list is a plan for an 11-story mixed use building at 69-65 Yellowstone Boulevard in Queens. Formerly a Key Foods store, Slate Properties purchased the site and hired Aufgang Architects to design 134,000 square feet of total space. There will be 113,400 square feet of residential space comprising 168 apartments, and about 20,500 square feet of retail space.
3) The third spot is a Brooklyn piece, located at 159 Boerum Street. Also being developed by Slate, this project will be one of the tallest places in the Williamsburg neighborhood, standing 190 feet tall. The building, designed again by Aufgang Architects, plans to create 120 residential units in a 19-story building, which will span 100,648 square feet.
4) Fourth is Rob Chun’s Manhattan property at 842 6th Avenue between 29th and 30th Streets. A 168-key hotel is being designed there by AESI Professional Architecture. The 25-story hotel would span 77,891 square feet, and include a fitness center, and reading lounge.
5) Fifth on the list is a four-story school, at 2500 Fish Avenue in the Bronx’s Pelham Gardens. The New York City School Construction Authority has commissioned La Rocca Greene Architects to build the 62,742 square feet building, which will be called P.S. 97.
6) Next, SKF Development, led by Kim Tasher, filed plans to construct a residential building at 246 Echo Place in Mount Hope, Bronx. Currently a two-family-home, the project hopes to make an 8-story building with 88 residential units, spanning roughly 51,232 square feet.
