Last week, the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) and the Department of Housing Preservation & Development launched a request for proposals (RFP) for two mixed-use buildings to be built on the super-block home to Wyckoff Gardens, DNAinfo reported. Wyckoff Gardens is a 530-rental-unit public housing development consisting of three 21-story towers in Boerum Hill. The city is seeking a development team to build two new buildings at the site’s northern two corners, at 260 and 280 Wyckoff Street, which currently serve as parking lots. Planned are roughly 500 rental apartments (down from an initial 650) and at least 10,000 square feet each of ground-floor commercial-retail and community facility space. Half of the apartments would be affordable while the other half would be market-rate. Improvements to the entire premises are also possible, including the upgrade of outdoor amenities. Proposals are due September 30.
Back in April, the first partial renderings were revealed of the six-story, 33-unit mixed-use building planned at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, located within two blocks of stops of on the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q, and R trains and Atlantic Terminal. Now, the first full rendering of the building, dubbed the Hendrik, has been revealed by the New York Times. The latest permits indicate the project will encompass 114,812 square feet. The ground and cellar levels will feature 26,000 square feet of retail, and the residential units above should average 1,680 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums ranging from two- to four-bedrooms, with the smallest units measuring 1,200 square feet and the largest clocking in at 2,500 square feet. Nineteen of the condos will have outdoor terraces. Amenities will include a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a library, a lounge, a pet spa, bike and stroller storage, an underground parking garage, a rooftop terrace, and a central courtyard. Hopestreet is the developer, while Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect. Foundation work is reportedly underway, with completion scheduled for late 2017.
Avery Hall Investments may be fighting Park Slopers to redevelop a Key Food on Fifth Avenue, but a dozen blocks north in Boerum Hill, their condo project is rising fast. YIMBY reader Tectonic recently swung by the site and brought us some shots of the progress.
In March, updated renderings were revealed of the seven-story, 31-unit residential building under development at 610 Warren Street, in Boerum Hill, located six blocks south of the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center stop on the D/N/R trains. Now, the building is topped-out and likely getting prepared to receive its façade, as seen in a photo by Tectonic. The project, dubbed Six Ten Warren, will measure 47,050 square feet in its entirety, and its residential units should average 1,150 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums ranging from one- to four-bedrooms. Amenities include a rooftop terrace, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, private residential storage, lounges, storage for 16 bikes, and a 16-car garage. Issac & Stern Architects is behind the architecture, while Paris Forino Design is designing the interiors. Adam America Real Estate is the developer. Completion is expected in the spring 0f 2017.
Back in August of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for the six-story, 29-unit mixed-use building at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill. Now, Curbed NY has updated details on the project, as well as the first partial renderings revealing the structure’s exterior. The 114,812-square-foot building, dubbed the Hendrik, will actually feature 33 residential units, averaging 1,680 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums, ranging from two- to four-bedroom configurations. Per the Schedule A, amenities will include a fitness center and a 12,725-square-foot parking garage in the sub-cellar. There will also be 16,293 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels. Hope Street Capital and AEW Capital Management are the developers, with Beyer Blinder Belle behind the design. The site’s old Walgreens store was demolished in 2015 and completion of the new structure is expected in 2017.
