A modern five-story apartment building is about to replace a little two-story brick townhouse at 96 16th Street, between 3rd and 4th Avenues in South Slope.
Earlier this spring, YIMBY reported on a filings for a three-story, 32-unit residential building designed by Karl Fischer at 695-705 6th Avenue, in South Slope, and now developers Shiraz Sanjana and RNS Holdings have acquired the property, according to the Daily News. The site boasts 34,800 square feet of development rights, and the building on file measures 34,632 square feet, but we don’t know if Karl Fischer’s plans are still in store. Sanjana is planning condos, and the existing single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
In December, an 11-story, 30-unit mixed-use building was filed at 140 15th Street, in South Slope, but was lost in the flood of other projects being filed before the year’s end. Then YIMBY revealed renderings of the project in May. Filings have not been approved yet by the DOB, but Boaz Gilad, the developer, is still actively filing for permits. The 36,747 square-foot building will feature 4,948 square feet on the ground floor for two retail units, and the residential units above will average 1,062 square feet. Feingold & Gregory Architects is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed in 2014 to remove two three-story townhouses and a retail building.
Late last year, YIMBY brought you news of Rabsky Group’s 12-story, 129-rental-unit building planned at 581 Fourth Avenue, in South Slope, and then renderings surfaced of the Karl Fischer-designed structure over the summer. Now, The Daten Group is paying $24 million for the assemblage, and the 12-story building will instead have 65 condominiums. Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is replacing Fischer, and demolition of the existing low-rise structures at 575-581 4th Avenue and 189-195 Prospect Avenue will begin in the fall. The original permits also included nearly 2,400 square feet of retail space. [The Real Deal]
In May, Brownstoner revealed the three-story buildings at 262-630 5th Avenue, in South Slope, would be redeveloped into a residential property. Now developers George Malafis and Ioannis Glyptis have filed applications to expand the building. Once complete, the building will stand six stories and have 28 residential units, each averaging 725 square feet. The building will measure a total 22,370 square feet, featuring 2,065 square feet of ground-floor retail. Thomas Winter is the architect of record, according to The Real Deal.
