Late last year, YIMBY brought you news of Rabsky Group’s 12-story, 129-rental-unit building planned at 581 Fourth Avenue, in South Slope, and then renderings surfaced of the Karl Fischer-designed structure over the summer. Now, The Daten Group is paying $24 million for the assemblage, and the 12-story building will instead have 65 condominiums. Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is replacing Fischer, and demolition of the existing low-rise structures at 575-581 4th Avenue and 189-195 Prospect Avenue will begin in the fall. The original permits also included nearly 2,400 square feet of retail space. [The Real Deal]

Just like Brooklyn’s other trendy industrial zones in Bushwick and Williamsburg, the M-1 zone around the Gowanus Canal has become a breeding ground for boutique hotels. The developer of the nearby Union Hotel filed plans last year for a second hotel at 489 Baltic Street, on the border between Gowanus and Boerum Hill. Now YIMBY has renderings for the four-story project between Bond and Nevins Streets.
Foundation work has given away to vertical construction at 645 Union Street, in Gowanus, where a five-story, 78-key hotel is planned, dubbed Gowanus Inn & Yard. According to Brownstoner, Matt Abramcyk and Alec Shtromandel are developing, while Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is serving as the architect of record. The building, located at the R train’s Union Street stop, will measure 18,835 square feet in total, and a restaurant will operate in the cellar. Completion is expected in Summer of 2016.
Applications have recently been approved by the DOB for a seven-story, 39-unit mixed-use building at 840 Fulton Street, in southern Clinton Hill, and now Brownstoner has the reveal for the Kutnicki Bernstein-designed project. The Daten Group is developing, and the 20,755 square-foot building will include 1,400 square feet of retail on the ground floor. The existing gas station was approved for demolition in May.
In February, YIMBY brought you news of Greystone & Co.’s planned 12-story, 75-unit mixed-use building at 69 East 125th Street, in northern East Harlem. Now Harlem+Bespoke has an on-site rendering of the project, which will feature 5,640 square feet of retail space, per applications approved in May. Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is designing, and completion is expected in June 2017, per signage. Existing four- and single-story structures, which were filed for demolition in February, must first be removed.
