From a skyscraper on the Far West Side to the new plans for the 5Pointz site, a wide variety of permit applications were filed with the city in July. Queens saw three big permit applications this month, while Manhattan saw four. Two of July’s top 10 permit applications were in Brooklyn and one in the Bronx. Here’s a roundup of last month’s largest projects, from PropertyShark.
1. 500 West 33rd Street/30 Hudson Yards The largest permit application in July was from Related Group. The application calls for a 3,423,666-square-foot development at Hudson Yards. The property will include around 2.6 million square feet of office space, as well as approximately a million square feet in retail on an adjacent podium, according to YIMBY. While this project’s application with the Department of Buildings calls for a 68-story skyscraper, Related has announced that the tower will be 80 stories tall. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect of record. According to YIMBY, a construction loan for the tower will close in mid-2015, which is when it will sprout up. Time Warner will be the anchor tenant at the office tower at 10th Avenue and 33rd Street, taking up space up to the 38th floor.
2. 22-44 Jackson Avenue The second biggest permit filed, and the biggest in Queens for the month, was for the former 5Pointz site, where the original structure is scheduled to be demolished in October. Once a haven for graffiti artists, permits were filed last month for 22-44 Jackson Avenue. David and Jerry Wolkoff are developing the site, where a new mixed-use development will rise. The project totals more than a million square feet and will include 1,000 apartments, 210 of which will be below market rate. The developers have also promised to include 12,000 feet of artist studios into the two-tower project. The north tower will include retail space.
