The Brooklyn-based nonprofit Community Counseling & Mediation (CCM) has filed applications for a six-story, 72-unit supportive housing apartment building at 402 Snediker Avenue, located in the New Lots section of East New York. Tenants at the project, dubbed Beverly’s Place, will have access to “an array of therapeutic, preventative, and wellness services” in the building, CCM stated when the project was revealed early last year.
Last week was busy at the Bronx Department of Buildings, with filings for a police station in Melrose and a number of mid-sized affordable housing projects throughout the borough. One non-profit filed applications for an eight-story senior housing development at 909 Beck Street in Longwood, in the southeastern Bronx.
Foundation work appears to be underway on the eight-story, 18-unit mixed-use building under development at 1875 Broadway, located on the corner of DeSales Place in eastern Bushwick. The new building, with 7,019 square feet of community facility space, is part of the ongoing redevelopment of the former Our Lady of Lourdes convent. The project includes the conversion of a four-story structure at 11 DeSales Place and the construction of a six-story structure to the north, which has topped out, featuring an additional 58 residential units and 1,215 square feet of community facility space.
Global Property Group has filed applications for a five-story, three-unit residential building at 250 Water Street, in Vinegar Hill, located in Brooklyn on the East River. The structure will measure 17,451 square feet, of which 13,905 square feet will be designated for livable residential space. There will be two apartments on the ground floor, followed by a quintuplex spanning a part of the ground floor and the second through fifth floors. Condominiums are surely in the works. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include private residential storage in the cellar. John Coogan’s NoHo-based OCV Architects is the architect of record. The 70-foot-wide, 6,950-square-foot plot is currently vacant.
In early 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a three-story, 19-unit residential building at 265 Van Brunt Street, in Red Hook, and then renderings of the project were revealed in early 2015. DNAinfo now reports the structure has topped out and is currently receiving its façade. The building appears to be four stories because it’s raised above the street level to prevent future flood waters from doing damage. Residential space will total 18,089 square feet, which means the rental units will average 952 square feet apiece. Cheever Development Corporation is behind the project and OCV Architects is designing it. Completion and occupancy are scheduled for this spring.
