Rendering appears at 42-59 Crescent Street as construction begins

A hotel is coming to 42-59 Crescent Street. Permits were approved in April by the Department of Buildings for a nine-story, 83 unit building with 22,080 square feet of commercial space at an FAR of 5.00.

We were walking by the site last week when we noticed a new rendering for the site, as seen below. April 30, 2019 is the anticipated delivery time of the project, and construction is currently in the excavation phase. Here’s more information courtesy of New York YIMBY, which was the first to spot the permit back in December:1

It will feature a slew of amenities, including laundry facilities, a business center with meeting rooms, a lounge, a bar/restaurant in the cellar, a café, and outdoor terraces on the ground and rooftop levels. Gwo-Shenq Wey’s Forest Hills-based architecture firm is the architect of record.

Pantry Eatery at 24-20 Jackson Avenue to offer ‘seasonal, healthy and wholesome food’

Pantry Eatery, located a 24-20 Jackson Avenue, will offer “seasonal, healthy and wholesome food,” said restaurateur Nicole Lapsatis in an email to The Court Square Blog.

“With a farm-to-counter flare, we want our customers to feel good about what they’re eating, and promise to offer dishes that will do just that,” Lapsatis said. “Our menu will comprise of, among others, hearty dishes, signature salads, homemade soups, and specialty sandwiches.”

The fast-casual dining spot is anticipating an early summer opening. Pantry Eatery will also feature locally-roasted coffee.

Construction recently finished on the space, with a full reveal being done last week, as seen in the photo below. The restaurant will take over for Sage General Store, which moved out in 2016.1

“We are excited to join the neighborhood,” Lapsatis said.

LIC Art Strolls: SculptureCenter and MoMA PS1

LIC ART STROLL:
SculptureCenter + MoMA PS1

Saturday, May 20, 3:30–6:00 PM
Meet in the SculptureCenter Lobby
Get Tickets: $12 for adults, $7 for seniors and students
(Includes admission to both museums)

Join the Long Island City Cultural Alliance (LICCA) for its first Art Stroll of 2017 on May 20th. This walking tour will introduce attendees to two of Long Island City’s leading cultural institutions—SculptureCenter and MoMA PS1—showcasing commonalities between the current programs at these experimental contemporary art spaces. The tour will also highlight these institutions’ longstanding connection to the neighborhood and their shared history as re-purposed buildings.

The event will begin at SculptureCenter with a guided tour of three new solo exhibitions by women artists, Charlotte Prodger: Subtotal, Sam Anderson: The Park, and Teresa Burga: Mano Mal Dibujada. The stroll will continue at MoMA PS1 with a tour of Past Skin, a new group exhibition of six women artists who consider the body in an increasingly technological world, and an exploration of several site-specific installations on view throughout the building. The event will conclude with a reception in MoMA PS1’s iconic courtyard (weather permitting).
