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.
The White Plains Common Council has approved the six-story, 77-unit residential building proposed at 1 Dekalb Avenue, located on the corner of Maple Avenue in downtown White Plains. The project’s apartments will be rentals, of which 22 percent, or 17 units, will rent at below-market rates to families making 80 percent of the Area Median Income, the Journal News reported. There will also be a 10,000-square-foot public green space and a two-story, 103-car underground parking garage.
Within the past few weeks, Long Island-based American Equity Partners filed applications and began the approval process to convert the 12-story, 350,000-square-foot office building at 440 Hamilton Avenue, located on the corner of North Broadway in downtown White Plains, into 245 residential units. A rendering of the project has also been revealed by the Westchester County Business Journal.
Construction has topped out and façade installation is well underway on the 30-story, 104-unit mixed-use building under development at 200 East 95th Street, located on the corner of Third Avenue on the Upper East Side. Progress on the structure can be seen at Curbed NY’s photo tour. The latest building permits indicate the building, dubbed The Kent, encompasses 317,664 square feet and rises 392 feet to its pinnacle.
