The New York City Housing Authority has proposed to allow private developers to build mixed-income residential towers on two parking lots at the Wyckoff Gardens public housing facility, in Boerum Hill. According to DNAinfo, the development would total 550 to 650 residential units, and the buildings would be located at 260 and 280 Wyckoff Street. Real Estate Weekly reports the units would be half affordable and half market-rate. Resident meetings will be conducted over the next month.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on filings for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 237 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, and now a schematic drawing of the building has been posted on-site, per Brownstoner. The new building will measure a total 5,512 square feet, and will feature 1,614 of retail space on the ground floor, followed by full-floor units averaging 1,300 square feet each. The units will actually be rentals, and Nicola Quinoes is the developer. Brooklyn-based Teresa Byrne Salter is the architect. The site’s single-story predecessor was demolished in January.
A six-story mixed-use apartment building may replace a single-story Walgreens at 505 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill, according to new building applications filed this morning.
Barrett Design and Development has already made its mark on Boerum Hill with a boutique condo project at 440 Atlantic Avenue. Now they’ve filed new building applications for another upscale development just a few blocks south at 2 St Marks Place, on the corner of Third Avenue.
YIMBY revealed the seven-story, 30-unit mixed-use building planned at 472 Atlantic Avenue (aka 465 Pacific Street) in Boerum Hill, late last year, and now developers Avery Hall Investments and ARIA Development Group have landed a $34.2 million construction loan, according to Crain’s. The team broke ground on the 85,000 square-foot condo project this week, which will include 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and completion is expected in early 2017. Morris Adjmi is the architect of record.
