Back in July of 2015, YIMBY reported on initial new building applications for 40 Debevoise Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Now, new permits have been pulled, indicating the site will grow substantially larger than first reported, with its height increasing from four floors to eight, and the total square footage roughly doubling.
Coney Island is currently seeing a resurgence in development both big and small, and today, YIMBY has the first details for a proposal by Arker Companies for a new building at 2828 West 28th Street, submitted in a rezoning dubbed Sea Park North, in the northern blocks of the neighborhood.
Foundation work is underway on the 14-story, 37-unit residential building under development at 211 West 28th Street, in Chelsea. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The building will contain 24,563 square feet of residential space, which means its units should average 664 square feet apiece. All of the apartments will be designated as supportive housing. Arker Companies and the Chelsea Leaf South Housing Development Fund Corporation are the developers. Aufgang Architects is behind the design. A target completion date is unknown.
Construction has quietly topped out on the 14-story, 89-unit mixed-use affordable housing building under development at 92-61 165th Street, located on the corner of Archer Avenue in downtown Jamaica. A rendering of the project has also been spotted on the construction fence. The latest building permits indicate the structure measures 93,041 square feet and rises 132 feet above street level to its roof.
Prolific affordable developer Arker Companies has built and rehabbed thousands of apartments in Spring Creek, a far-flung neighborhood in southeastern Brooklyn. Now, they’ve filed applications for two more mid-rise residential buildings in the neighborhood, at 911 Erskine Street and 11629 Seaview Avenue.
