Construction is wrapping up on the eight-story, 16-unit mixed-use building under development at 596 Washington Avenue (a.k.a. 863 Atlantic Avenue), in southern Clinton Hill. The structure measures 13,103 square feet. It will host 1,165 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by seven floors of rental apartments above. The apartments should average 727 square feet apiece, and some of them will be duplexes. Amenities include laundry facilities, storage for bikes, and a common rooftop recreational area, and all of the apartments feature some form of private outdoor space. Jacob Shwimmer’s CGS Builders is the developer and Christopher Dierig’s Midtown South-based S3 Architecture is the behind the design. Occupancy can probably be expected in the next few months. The project has largely escaped the media’s spotlight and has risen quietly since crews broke ground back in October of 2014.
Bed-Stuy-based CGS Builders has been filing applications since March for a six-story, 29-unit residential building at 620 Parkside Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, right around the corner from the 2 and 5 trains’ stop at Winthrop Street. The building will measure 26,076 square feet in total, and units will average 900 square feet apiece, in varying configurations of three to six per floor. Midtown-based Michael Avramides is the architect of record, and the lot is currently vacant.
