City Point [Twitter]: Work is continuing full-throttle at City Point, in Downtown Brooklyn, where Acadia Realty Trust and Washington Square Partners are currently constructing the 19- and 30-story residential buildings of phase II, which sit above a dramatic expansion of the retail base. Façade installation has also begun on the lower levels.

420 Kent Avenue [Brownstoner]: Ancient renderings have surfaced for what was approved back in 2006 for 420-430 Kent Avenue, in Williamsburg, the site that Spitzer is currently in contract to buy. The simple massing depicts two 24- and 18-story mixed-use buildings set within the 2.8-acre site.

280 Convent Avenue [Harlem+Bespoke]: Renderings are up for the Landmark Preservation Commission-approved glass addition at 280 Covent Avenue, in Hamilton Heights.

250 West 43rd Street [Wall Street Journal]: Joseph Chetrit has purchased the dilapidated 25-story and 700-room building — dubbed the Hotel Carter, at 250 West 43rd Street — for $190 million; “experts say the property requires at least another $125 million for safety and infrastructure upgrade,” at the minimum.

350 DeGraw Street [Pardon Me For Asking]: Demolition of the old two-story townhouse at 350 DeGraw Street, in Carroll Gardens, has almost finished, leaving just the façade intact. Applications have been filed to construct a four-story and nearly 5,000 square-foot residential building, but stop-work orders have halted construction.

Cornell Tech Campus [Roosevelt Islander]: The façade has been completely removed from Building C, where demolition is underway to make room for Cornell Tech’s Capmus Redevelopment; building F will be the next to crumble, and interior demolition is currently underway at Building E.

2433 Knapp Street [Brownstoner]: A 78,000 square-foot property at 2433 Knapp Street, in Sheepshead Bay — of which 25,000 square feet is developable — has been listed for $2.3 million. Previous filings indicate it could give rise to a three-story and 18-unit residential building.

27-07 43rd Avenue [The Court Square Blog]: Excavation is in full swing at 27-07 43rd Avenue, in Long Island City, the site of a planned nine-story and six-unit mixed-use building of 57,173 square feet. On-site signage indicates a Spring 2016 completion date.
