Another apartment building is coming to Williamsburg. The new seven-story residential project at 106 North 1st will have commercial space on the ground floor. The neighborhood has seen an influx of condos in the past few years, and an office development is currently in the works directly across the street, at 107 North 1st Street.
Hill West Architects
The outer sculptural facade of 11 Hoyt is beginning to ascend up the building, piece by piece. The 57-story, ground-up skyscraper is being designed by Studio Gang Architects, and Tishman Speyer is the developer of the 770,000 square foot project, located in Downtown Brooklyn. Hill West is the architect of record, while Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is managing sales for the 480 condominiums that are being designed by London-based Michaelis Boyd Associates.
Fortis Property Group has launched sales for 5 River Park, the first property to arrive on the heels of the billion-dollar River Park redevelopment plan in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. The new property offers 25 condominiums ranging in size from one to four bedrooms.
130 William Street is one of the most highly anticipated buildings currently rising in Lower Manhattan, and after sales launched earlier this summer, another milestone is at hand. The hand cast and oversized concrete arches that will make up the façade, which are purposefully evocative of the city’s historic fabric from the 19th and early 20th centuries, are now quickly rising along the exterior. Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.
Permits have been filed for a 26-story mixed-use building at 30 Front Street, a parking lot for the Jehovah Witnesses Watchtower building in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The lot was the last significant piece of property that the organization had to sell, a process started in 2011 following a decision to move upstate to Warwick, New York. Fortis Property Group is behind the applications.
