after around three years of work, two of the five buildings in flushing commons in queens are ready to come online.
not too flashy -- looks nice and normal.

rezoning was approved to build up far rockaway, queens.
it covers 23 blocks and could bring 3k apts.
the city owned land developments will stay 100% affordable housing.
no mention of an ocean dike though...

here is something interesting -- new brunswick, nj has this really nifty, but old, kpf designed tod/transit village project that seems to finally be getting underway -- we will see what happens:


And now, we have fresh renderings of the plan for The Hub, which Kohn Pedersen Fox is designing. To date, high-rise development in New Brunswick has been dominated by budget and auto-oriented design, but The Hub breaks from this phenomenon, both in terms of format and appearance.

Standard new towers in New Brunswick are typically situated atop large parking podiums, with bland facades and awkward massing. While the infill development is still a net positive for the city, a more urban-friendly approach is required if the city is to live up to its full potential.

Two approximately 300-foot tall towers rise from a podium that includes retail space, and the 1.7 million square foot project can be adapted to suit the needs of office, tech, or academic tenants. The shorter tower will be residential.

The project is being developed by the New Brunswick Development Corp., a partnership between government and the city’s largest employers (including Johnson & Johnson and Rutgers University’s flagship campus), which is the driving force behind development downtown.

East New York’s getting a 274-unit passive affordable building by Dattner

Apartments will come in studio through three-bedroom variants

BY TANAY WARERKAR  OCT 27, 2017, 2:18PM EDT


One of the first new affordable developments set to rise following the rezoning of East New York is Chestnut Commons, a 274-unit development designed by Dattner Architects.

Located in a large vacant lot bounded by Dinsmore Place, Chestnut Street, and Atlantic Avenue, the building will be built to passive house standards and serve very low-income New Yorkers; about 80 apartments will be set aside for families making up to $25,770 annually...

... The building will feature a mix of studios, one, two, and three-bedrooms. On the upper end of the income spectrum, apartments will be open to families making up to $51,540 annually.

here is the first russian 1000' apt bldg in town - the lot is cleared and its under way:


New Look At Manhattan’s First Russian-Designed Supertall 262 Fifth Avenue, Midtown South





The super-slender tower had initial applications filed about thirteen months ago, and demolition since then has been fairly swift, with two structures at 262 and 264 Fifth Avenue since disappearing. 260 Fifth Avenue will be integrated into the base of the project.

Boris Kuzinez of Five Points Development is the developer, and Moscow based Meganom is the architect. As described to YIMBY, “A bold, sleek aluminum and glass skin will be perforated with wide porthole windows on its eastern exterior. On the north and south, floor-to-ceiling window walls will have uninhibited panoramic views of the city and beyond.”

The building will stand 1,009 feet to its parapet, soaring well above neighboring projects.

meanwhile, over in new haven, you really cant beat the new traditional residential for yale.

its mostly all laid brickwork, with a few prefabbed sections, like the vaulting.

really, really stunning quality.

of course stern is the architect, is there anyone else who do this right?

that must be PS 41. The inequities in the NYC school system are disgraceful. The latest of course the revelation that the elite high schools (Stuyvesant, etc.) get millions more in funds than other schools. If the kids at these schools are so smart they should be able to succeed at higher rates despite this. Added to that was the report a couple of years ago that the schools are the most segregated in the country. So much for New York being so diverse.

City construction hits record high with midtown leading the charge, data show

By Sarina Trangle and Lisa L. Colangelo   sarina.trangle@amny.com, lisa.colangelo@amny.com November 16, 2017



The scaffolding does not lie.

The city issued a record 88,838 construction permits over the last six months, eclipsing the previous high set in the spring and summer of 2016, according to new Department of Buildings data.

“It’s not your imagination: construction is at a record high in New York City,” Buildings Commissioner Rick Chandler said in a statement.

...The data shows the part of midtown below Central Park has seen the most construction activity, with 13,098 permits issued so far this year.

...Meanwhile, the number of demolition permits was highest in Midtown East, Bushwick and Gowanus in 2016. The Department of Buildings noted that demolition work typically occurs to make room for new development and precedes further construction activity.

...The city pointed out that all the development has led to a record 43,258 construction jobs in 2016.
