Where will the people of the city that never sleeps, actually rest their heads in the future?
The answer to that question is simple:
New multifamily developments are being planned for each borough and each neighborhood.
Over 36,000 residential units were filed with the city in 2019, a 7.1% increase from 2018.
Out of the five boroughs, Brooklyn led the way, with the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island following.
Each of the boroughs also has a mixture of housing types.
It’s not as if downtown Manhattan is only building luxury condos and Brooklyn is only building student housing.
Affordable apartments are going up everywhere and senior housing is always in demand.
With a population density of over 26,000 residents per square mile, New York City has not been a sprawling, wide-open city for quite some time.
Most new multifamily developments are going up higher, rather than wider.
That’s no exception for the undertakings on this list.
Each project will reach at least eight stories and most will sneak into double digits.
We’re going to be looking at some of the mid-sized projects that are either in planning or going to be starting construction in the future.
So, that leaves out Hudson Yards, Pacific Park and the Domino Plant Redevelopment.
With six projects on the agenda, we’ll be bouncing around some of the most popular areas for development.
We’re going to start with a location that’s just a couple blocks from the Apollo Theater.
