Downtown Brooklyn’s development boom only seems to be accelerating, with every recent completion seemingly matched by another tower breaking ground. Now, YIMBY has the first word as well as the reveal for a major project planned at 202-208 Tillary Street. The applicants have applied for a rezoning of the site for inclusion within the official Special Downtown Brooklyn District, and the resulting plans are set to allow two connected towers of 23 and 21 floors.
East New York has been in the headlines recently thanks to a major rezoning that is paving the way for the area’s transformation into a denser and fully revitalized neighborhood, and now YIMBY has the first images of a major new development coming to 1427-1449 Loring Avenue. The plans, designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC, would result in four buildings covering an entire city block.
Downtown Brooklyn is a hotbed for major new developments, with sites like 9 DeKalb Avenue set to sprout supertall towers in the near future. But smaller opportunities for positive transformations still abound within the myriad of older structures that compose the bulk of the neighborhood’s urban fabric, and one such opportunity is located at 50 Nevins Street, which is set for a redevelopment and expansion by the Institute for Community Living.
Back in September of 2016, YIMBY reported on permits filed for two new buildings coming to 127-129 Troutman Street, in western Bushwick. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which is being developed by Moshe Friedman and designed by Brooklyn-based BEAM Group.
A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for four five-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 3506 Farragut Road, located on the southern end of East Flatbush. The buildings will measure 6,500 square feet each. Across all four, the apartments should average 750 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Asher Hershkowitz’s Brooklyn-based firm is the architect of record. The 5,700-square-foot plot is occupied by a two-story wood-framed house. Demolition permits have not been filed.
