Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use affordable housing facility at 1769 Fort George Hill, in Inwood. The structure would be an improvement from the site’s current situation. Residents have complained that the parking on the vacant lot has expanded without permits, and been used for commercial parking and a car wash. South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (SoBro) will be responsible for the development.

Construction is wrapping up on 60 Fulton Street, with the leasing gallery opening mid-October. Hill West Architects are responsible for the design, and the the 23-story tower has been dubbed “Exhibit,” in recognition of the curated photographic art exhibition on permanent display throughout the lobby, hallways, and amenity areas.
The Kalikow Group has broken ground on their seven-story residential building at 2415 Church Avenue, for which YIMBY has the first renderings. Kalikow Group, WRS Associates, and the Ishay Group are joint owners of the property, and permits were filed for the project in early 2015.
The last time we reported on 190 South 1st Street, YIMBY had the opportunity to go on a tour of the construction site. Now, we have images of the nearly-completed 13-story building, and the final look is strikingly close to what’s depicted in the renderings. The brutalist concrete facade is well balanced from the tower portion, all the way down to the community facility space along Driggs Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a new seven-story condominium building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The project would replace a three-story residential structure. The site is four blocks away from the Gates Avenue subway station on Broadway, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Plenty of restaurants and shops dominate the vicinity, including a grocery store.
