Downtown Brooklyn is a hotbed for major new developments, with sites like 9 DeKalb Avenue set to sprout supertall towers in the near future. But smaller opportunities for positive transformations still abound within the myriad of older structures that compose the bulk of the neighborhood’s urban fabric, and one such opportunity is located at 50 Nevins Street, which is set for a redevelopment and expansion by the Institute for Community Living.
Excavation work is well underway at the site of a planned 59-story, 458-unit mixed-use tower under development at 138 Willoughby Street, located on the corner of Flatbush Avenue Extension in Downtown Brooklyn. A photo reveals multiple excavators active on site, as well as footings for the foundation. The latest building permits have the project measuring 686,830 square feet and rising 696 feet to its parapet.
The 21-story, 73-unit mixed-use building under development at 319 Schermerhorn Street, located on the corner of Nevins Street in Downtown Brooklyn, has topped out since YIMBY’s last update in August, and façade installation is well underway. The latest building permits indicate the structure rises 210 feet to its rooftop and encompasses 90,181 square feet.
Construction has topped out on the 21-story, 110-unit mixed-use building under development at 237 Duffield Street in Downtown Brooklyn. YIMBY has a photo of the structure, which also reveals that façade installation is underway. The latest building permits indicate the project rises 210 feet to its main roof, not including bulkhead elements, and encompasses 111,775 square feet.
Façade installation is now up to the 17th floor on the 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building, which topped out in October, at 300 Livingston Street, located on the corner of Bond Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The structure can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 734,312 square feet and rise 250 feet to its main roof, or 271 feet to the top of the bulkhead.
