Foundation work has begun for the six-story mixed-use building at 805 Washington Avenue, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, as seen in the latest from Tectonic. Construction crews have cleared away much of the lot, and steel has been installed along the perimeter. The site is just a block away from the Brooklyn Museum in Prospect Park, and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is also nearby.
In August, the owners of the Key Food at 801 Washington Avenue in Crown Heights announced plans to shutter the store on the corner of Lincoln Place to make way for a residential building. Now applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings for the nine-story project, which will have a main address at 805 Washington Avenue.
Construction has topped out at the five-story, 20-unit residential building under development at 44 Stanhope Street, in central Bushwick. The latest building permits indicate the structure measures 21,013 square feet and rises 55 feet above the street. Its residential units will be rental apartments, of which twenty percent (four units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, DNAinfo reported. The units should average 726 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, laundry facilities, storage for bikes, 10 off-street parking spaces, and a rooftop terrace. Greenwich Village-based DJLU Architects is behind the architecture and an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC is the property owner. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
Central Harlem hasn’t seen quite as much development as the area southeast of 125th Street, but developers have finally started paying attention to the quiet and transit-rich blocks next to the City College campus. The latest project headed to the neighborhood is an 11-story residential building at 308 West 133rd Street, between St. Nicholas Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.
Alliance Private Capital Group has filed applications for a six-story, 37-unit residential building at 526 Union Avenue, in north Williamsburg, located four blocks north of the G train’s stop at Metropolitan Avenue. The building will measure 26,389 square feet, which translates into an average unit of 713 square feet, indicative of rentals. De-Jan Lu’s Manhattan-based architectural firm DJLU Architect filed for the permit, and the 10,000 square-foot lot is currently being used for parking. The developer picked up the plot for $9.6 million late last year.
