Permanent signage appears for Healthy Living Pharmacy at 42-15 Crescent Street

The last time we checked in at Healthy Living Pharmacy at 42-15 Crescent Street was in June, when temporary signage had appeared announcing the arrival of the much needed amenity.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that permanent signage has appeared, and that construction is essentially done, minus stocking of the shelves.

It will open in the retail space of Luna LIC, which is currently being represented by Winick.2

Bridge Gourmet Market coming to 23-01 Queens Plaza North in QLIC

Bridge Gourmet Market is coming to the retail space at QLIC at 41-42 24th Street. The exact physical address will be 23-01 Queens Plaza North according to filings with the New York Department of State.1 We also found the Google+ page for the market, which bills itself as an “Exclusive Fine Deli in LIC,” with a projected opening timeline of Spring 2018.2

The Google page also has a rending for the site, which was leased by RFK Properties. The rendering and a picture of the site are referenced for you below. Construction permits were filed with the DOB back in December.3

Partial Reveal: 42-50 27th Street

We last stopped by 42-50 27th Street in late 2016 when we saw that pipe scaffolding was just starting to go up on site.1 Since then, outside facade work has completed, and construction crews have started to peel away the facade, as seen in the photo below.

Permits were approved for a nine-story residential building with a FAR of 4.97 will be built with 32 residential units.2

Rendering appears for Rockrose’s project at 43-12 Hunter Street

A rendering has appeared on site at Rockrose’s newest Court Square project at 43-12 Hunter Street, as construction has started. Permits approved in December call for an 18-story mixed-use build back in what used to be called “The Lot.”1 Construction will last about two years, with an anticipated delivery date in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Here’s more details from The Real Deal, who was the first to spot the permits back in April, 2017:2

The proposed building at 43-12 Hunter Street would feature 123 units across 86,560 square feet, according to permit application filed with the city Thursday. There are also plans for 4,000 square feet of retail space, as well as a lounge, an exercise room and a rooftop terrace.

Opening Jan. 28 at SculptureCenter: Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid, In Practice: Another Echo

Save the date for the Opening Reception for two exhibitions on Sunday, January 28, 5-7pm. The exhibitions will be on view January 29 – April 2, 2018.
Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. A newly commissioned video by Rodriguez engages the discourse of sculpture through the tools of cinema and follows the lives of ‘related’ artworks, recounting the conditional relationships between artist, artwork, and third-party agents (institution, caregiver, surrogate) in familial terms.
Carissa Rodriguez’ video commission is underwritten by Valeria Napoleone XX SculptureCenter. Valeria Napoleone XX SculptureCenter (VNXXSC) is an ongoing initiative that supports the production of a major artwork by a female artist in a selected exhibition at SculptureCenter.
Curated by SculptureCenter’s 2018 Curatorial Fellow Allie Tepper, In Practice: Another Echo brings together the work of twelve artists and artist teams engaged in reshaping experiences and forms of public space. Often responding to imposed sociopolitical conditions, the artists in this exhibition project voice and language, and make use of responsive and vernacular materials. Rather than glance at the past with nostalgia, these artists share a preoccupation with the present moment: obscuring, adapting, and subverting surrounding signs and physical structures in order to witness, reinvent, and survive.
The exhibition features newly commissioned works by: Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau, Nobutaka Aozaki, Cudelice Brazelton, Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall, Carey Denniston, Jules Gimbrone, Baseera Khan, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Courtney McClellan, Jon Wang, Carmen Winant, and Lachell Workman.
