Development is certainly heating up around Sunset Park’s open railway tracks. Just last week, a one-million-square-foot mixed-use development at 8th Avenue and 63rd Street started making its way through the City’s approval process, and now, just around the corner, an equally massive mega-development has been proposed. First spotted by Yimby, the idea from DXA Studio would encompass two blocks along 62nd Street, from 5th to 7th Avenues. Three 18-story towers would incorporate retail, condos, office space, restaurants, a hotel, gym with a pool, community facilities, and public park space.

The architects at DXA told Yimby that the proposal for 6202 7th Avenue “provides a focal point for the neighborhood and a destination for the region,” noting its proximity to the N train at 8th Avenue.

The open train tracks currently sit 22 feet below street level. Just like the much larger Hudson Yards, a platform would be built to cover them.

Permits have not yet been filed for the project as it’s still in the preliminary stages.
