Since founding the company more than 70 years ago, the Plaxall family has purchased and rehabilitated properties in the neighborhood and currently&nbsp;manages over one million square feet of space.&nbsp;Achieved through rezoning, the proposal calls for 335,000 square feet for industrial uses, 4,955 housing units with 25 percent of them affordable, a 700+ seat public school and a new, elevated promenade. If the rezoning is approved, construction is anticipated to begin in 2020 with a completion date in 2034, but no official timeline has been set.
The Anable Basin rezoning would cover about 14.7 acres, with Plaxall owning about 12.6 already. The district would be bordered by 45th Avenue and 44th Drive to the north, Vernon Boulevard Continue reading "Anable Basin proposal envisions a massive mixed-use district along the Long Island City waterfront"

A redesign from <a href="https://archinect.com/fxfowle" rel="nofollow" >FXFOWLE</a> now brings the total square footage to 2 million square feet from a previous 1.8 million and&nbsp;<strong>lowers its height to 940 feet tall from 1,050 feet</strong>. Instead of 63 floors, the tower will rise 53 floors in this new design. To match standards for today&rsquo;s modern office, the building will now feature larger floor plates, higher ceilings and a terrace on the eighth floor. As the&nbsp;<a href="http://nypost.com/2017/10/31/3-hudson-boulevard-is-getting-a-major-upgrade/" rel="nofollow" >New York Post&nbsp;</a>reported, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held this Friday with elected officials, celebrating the reboot.
