It's a beautiful thing isn't it. The gold standard; why it deserves the name of "the city".

Most of the construction is in the form of low rises and mid rises. Tons of those, and all over. The layman might think Manhattan is were the action is, but a drive through queens/brooklyn, taking the side streets often reveals many surprises. And with those surprises, lots of traffic, but it's the trade off for success and growth. Queens is absolutely booming, and Brooklyn's boom is spreading further East. Next stop, the Bronx.

^ it is amazing to see. Particularly long island city, and both sides of the williamsburg bridge. schemerhorn street in brooklyn is unrecognizable from 5-10 years ago. same for fort greene (BAM area). I remember when the LIRR terminal was a big pit in the ground.

I hope that Atlantic avenue (east of barclays of course) can get in on the action soon. those are some of the last dumpy areas of Brooklyn (which you see on the drive in from JFK). some actually architecturally significant buildings in pretty poor condition over there. problem is that atlantic is a de facto highway I guess..

I agree. Places like Woodhaven or East NY offer plenty of opportunities. Density wise, more mid rises intermingled with the singe family homes would be nice. Lots of parcels could be bought their at a fraction of what they are bordering the East River for example. One area I think should be upzoned is Astoria. Lots of potential for that area, and I think it could support towers or larger high rises/mid rises with tons of units. Its by Manhattan too, yet has conservative zoning.

The Atlantic Ave. corridor is in the process of being massively rezoned for high density development.

East NY and that whole corridor out to JFK will look totally different in 10-15 years.

Smile NEW YORK | 2051 Ryer Avenue | FT | 12 FLOORS

Project: 2051 Ryer Avenue



Quote:
The building will rise 12 floors (as opposed to 13 previously), and total 66,615 square feet of residential space, to be divided between 86 apartments. That translates into an average unit of about 770 square feet, indicative of rentals. SLCE Architects is designing, and demolition permits for the site’s former occupant were filed in June of 2015.

Smile NEW YORK | 92-23 168th Street | 231 FT | 23 FLOORS

Project: 92-23 168th Street



Quote:
New York’s accessory skylines outside of Midtown and Downtown have been booming with new development in recent years, with Jersey City, Downtown Brooklyn, and Long Island City taking the respective crowns for their respective counties. But beyond those nodes, high-rises have also begun to multiply beyond the proximate periphery. Jamaica, in Queens, has seen a sprinkling of 20 to 30 story buildings enter the pipeline in the past few years, and now another major project is set to rise in the burgeoning neighborhood, at 92-23 168th Street.

There, Edelman Sulton Knox Wood Architects are designing a new 23-story building, which will have a total construction area of over 530,000 square feet. That will be divided between about 60,000 square feet of commercial space, 19,000 square feet of community facility space, and 333,000 square feet of residential space. The latter component will be split between 389 apartments, for an average size of about 850 square feet, indicative of rentals.

The building’s cellar will contain 130 parking spaces, as well as space for a NYPD server. Above that, the first and second floors will house the tower’s retail and community facility space, with the residential component located on floors three through 23. The building will rise 231 feet to its rooftop, so ceiling heights will be relatively modest.

Soon we'll need to create an excel spreadsheet showing in detail every proposed and under construction project by height, financing status, and borough (and NJ). I can no longer memorize all these projects.

Smile NEW YORK | 145 West 110th Street | 135 FT | 13 FLOORS

Project: 145 West 110th Street



Quote:
Central Park North doesn’t often see new developments, but now, new building applications have been filed for a vacant site at 145 West 110th Street, in Harlem. The structure will stand 13 stories and 135 feet to its roof, containing 55,634 square feet of residential space, which will be divided between 36 units. At an average size of over 1,500 square feet, that means condominiums are very likely. Gluck+ Architects will be designing the project, and Yiannes Einhorn of Einhorn Development Group is the developer.

Smile NEW YORK | 112 East 11th Street | FT | 13 FLOORS

Project: 112 East 11th Street



Quote:
The site is located between Third and Fourth Avenues, and replaces five tenement buildings, which were fully demolished earlier this year. The hotel will span 78,361 square feet, totaling 311 rooms, for an average size of about 250 square feet. The small rooms will naturally be targeted towards millennials.

Besides the rooms, the building will feature a restaurant and lounge in the cellar, a fitness center on the second floor, and a restaurant on the top level.

The new Moxy has been fairly controversial, and neighborhood NIMBYs opposed the demolition of the old tenements, however, they were ultimately unsuccessful in getting the LPC to act. In any case, the building will be substantially more attractive than most new hotels in Manhattan, with industrial-style casement windows that lack the PTAC units that proliferate across so many low-budget developments.

The one downside to the project is its envelope, which will be withdrawn from the sidewalk, breaking the block’s street-wall. This is common amongst most new hotels in Manhattan, especially in the blocks of the Garment District, and it would probably be wise of City Planning to change zoning to prevent these kinds of designs, as they detract from existing urbanity.

This is what it's replacing: Demolished already
