News from World Elevator---August 10


A group of developers envisions a 1.5-million-sq.-ft., 65- and 50-story complex that would have offices, apartments, retail, a school, public space and a factory along the East River in Long Island City, Queens, New York City (NYC), The Architect's Newspaper reports. Bringing housing and light manufacturing together would require rezoning, since that is not currently allowed. TF Cornerstone was selected by the NYC Economic Development Corp. to lead the US$925-million development on 4.5 acres along 44th Drive. Architects are ODA, Handel Architects and Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects. The plan is for approximately 1,000 apartments, 100,000 sq. ft. of light manufacturing, 400,000 sq. ft. of office space and 19,000 sq. ft. of retail. If all goes well, the project could be complete in 2022.


A lot formerly home to a gas station and doughnut shop in downtown Toronto is being prepared to make way for the 36-story 159SW Tower, which will have 360 condominiums, Urban Toronto reports. Developed by the Alterra Group of Cos. and designed by Richmond Architects, the brown-clad structure will rise just southwest of St. James Town's 20th Century towers. It will have a four-story podium with retail fronting the corner of Sherbourne and Wellesley streets. The plan also includes wider sidewalks and new landscaping by Alexander Budrevics and Associates.
