Signage appears for ‘Pantry Eatery’ at 24-20 Jackson Avenue

In January, details emerged of what would be replacing Sage General Store located at 24-20 Jackson Avenue.1 “[It will be a] fast casual neighborhood eatery, great coffee selection, sandwiches, burgers, salads, healthy grain bowls, breakfast sandwiches,” said Maegan Kovatch, General Manager of SquareWine & Spirits, which remains the occupant next door. “Perfect for this neighborhood.”

The restaurant now has a name of “Pantry Eatery,” with signage on the project going up on Thursday, as seen in the photo below. No timeline yet on when the store will open.

Signage appears for 42-20 24th Street

We last checked in on 42-20 24th Street a/k/a 42-12 28th Street back in January, when new renderings were released for the project.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that signage has appeared on site for the project, encouraging those interested to check out 1QPSTower.com.

Here’s more from its website:

The appeal of living at 1 QPS luxury rentals is undeniable. It’s purposefully designed to accommodate the lifestyles of its residents. The public spaces are inviting, numerous and beautiful. The residences are sleek and modern with magnificent views. The location is strategic, with close proximity to a wide variety of destinations — for working, for relaxing and for simply enjoying life.

27-17 42nd Road tops out

The last time we checked in at 27-17 42nd Road (a/k/a 28-02 42nd Road) was in December when we noted that the building had risen 20 stories.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw the building has topped out, as seen in the photo below.

The former site of the proposed “Star Tower” back in 2008 had been vacant for many years before the lot sold for a princely sum in 2014.2 A new round of permits were approved on the site in December, 2014.3
