With the soon-to-be 777-foot-tall 45 East 22nd Street now climbing quickly into the Flatiron District’s skyline, YIMBY sat down with developer Bruce Eichner to discuss the building’s progress, the surrounding neighborhood’s rapid evolution, as well as what else might be on the horizon for Continuum. YIMBY in bold.
Property owner Yair Bohadana, operating as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, four-unit residential buildings at 152 Sackman Street and 2441 Dean Street, in Ocean Hill, located five blocks south of the J, Z, L, A, and C trains, as well as the East New York LIRR station. Combined, the buildings will total 6,166 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 771 square feet. Bakhtiar Shamloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Group Design is the architect of record, and the site’s two-story predecessor was demolished by the HDP in 2005.
Applications have surfaced for Patoma Partners’ three-story, eight-unit mixed-use development at 52-56 Marcy Avenue and 357 Grand Street, in northern Williamsburg, four blocks from the G train’s stop at Metropolitan Avenue. The development is being divided into four equal buildings, but combined they will measure 15,020 square feet. On the ground floor, commercial-retail space will span 5,484 square feet in total, and full-floor units will average a condo-sized 1,192 square feet each. Brooklyn-based KMP Design & Engineering is the architect of record.
Last month, YIMBY brought you the first look at Robert A.M. Stern’s design for One Wall Street, a 50-story office tower that’s set to become a mix of condos and rentals. Now Macklowe Properties has filed alteration applications to transform the building into 524 apartments.
Mar Mar Realty is placing their 37,000 square-foot bowling ally at 30-05 Whitestone Expressway, in Flushing, on the market as a development site for $60 million, according to Commercial Observer. The site measures 80,000 square feet and is currently zoned for manufacturing, but the owner is seeking a rezoning of the property to allow for a 386,000 square-foot mixed-use development, with commercial and residential uses. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the property, and the rezoning could possibly take a year to secure.
