Back in January, YIMBY posted a new rendering for Red Apple Group’s 3514 Surf Avenue, in Coney Island. Since then, we’ve spoken with the site’s developer, John Catsimatidis, who offered an even fresher image of the project, as well as some additional insight into what’s happening across the neighborhood and Brooklyn.
Permits have been filed for a 13-story high-rise residential building at 169 Tillary Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. The site is six blocks away from the DeKalb Avenue Subway Station, right by 138 Willoughby Street, as well as 9 and 61 Dekalb. Gold Street Realty Holdings will be responsible for the development.
New information has been revealed about 80 Flatbush, in Downtown Brooklyn, by Alloy Development. The release brings new renderings, as well as a construction timeline and design revisions in response to a substantial voluntary review process. The proposal will begin the formal public review through ULURP, i.e. the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, in early to mid-March. Architecture Research Office will be responsible for the design of the school, to be included in the base.
Renderings have been revealed for the rooftop recreation terrace on top of Brooklyn Point, located at 138 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. Swimmers will be able to look over the East River to Downtown and Midtown Manhattan, and once complete, it will be the highest residential infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere. The tower rises up 720 feet, nearly a hundred feet higher than the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and its rooftop pool in Singapore. Matthews Nielsen Landscape Architects will be responsible for the site, which also includes a sundeck, outdoor dining area, changing room and showers, and outdoor movie screening space.
Yesterday, major news was announced regarding Mary Anne Gilmartin’s departure from Forest City Ratner, as she joined forces with Robert Lapidus and David Levinson to form L&L MAG, a new venture that will draw on the talents of all three executives and a host of other talent. The firm also launched its new website, which features a fresh rendering of the full build-out of the Pacific Park mega-project, surrounding Barclay’s Center in Downtown Brooklyn, which has undergone substantive changes to its final appearance, including the addition of what could become one of the neighborhood’s tallest towers.
