Just last week, a rendering was revealed of the planned eight-story condominium project coming to 137 Fourth Avenue (a.k.a. 334 Butler Street), in northern Park Slope. Now, official new building applications have been filed with the Building Department. The development will measure 18,106 square feet and will contain 1,385 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor. Thirteen residential units will be located on the second through eighth floors, average 967 square feet apiece. Two duplex penthouses will occupy the seventh and eighth floors. Amenities include private residential storage, a fitness center, and a rooftop terrace. Arbie Development is the developer and ARC Architecture + Design Studio is the architect. A three-story townhouse must first be demolished. Completion is expected in 2018.
A small, modern apartment building is coming to Quincy Street on the northern edge of Bed-Stuy, and YIMBY has the first look at the project, which is under construction between Patchen and Ralph avenues.
Applications for a 15-story, 68-key hotel have been filed at 149-21 Archer Avenue (a.k.a. 92-18 150th Street) in Downtown Jamaica. The structure will encompass 39,084 square feet. Hotel rooms, averaging roughly 250 square feet apiece, will be located on the second through 15th stories, while a lobby will take up the ground floor. Guest amenities include a 1,500-square-foot restaurant in the cellar level and a rooftop bar with a terrace. TCX Development released a rendering of the project earlier this year. Since the time of the release, the number of hotel rooms has shrunk by four. Forest Hills-based ARC Architecture + Design Studio is behind the architecture. The 4,018-square-foot corner lot was previously occupied by a single-story commercial building, which was demolished earlier this year. The site is located two blocks from the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer Station on the E, J, and Z trains.
Many of the little wood frame houses along the avenues in Park Slope and Greenwood Heights might not be around much longer. They occupy generously zoned lots near public transportation, in a neighborhood where rents are rising fast. And today we have a rendering for what’s replacing two old houses at 643-645 5th Avenue in Greenwood Heights.
