When it comes to new building filings in the city, 2021 is off to a somewhat slow start.
The city’s 10 biggest new building applications filed in January totaled about 2 million square feet — about 1 million square feet less than was filed in December.
Six of the top 10 projects were mixed-use buildings, while three were schools.
Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bronx each had three of the month’s biggest filings, while Queens, which dominated in December, had only one plan — ranked 8th — that made the top 10.
