Back in July, details were revealed of the planned renovation of Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Building 77 — a 16-story, one million-square-foot industrial building — and now Brownstoner reports work is well underway. Retail space is planned on the ground floor, along with a 60,000 square-foot public food hall, and the floors above will be leased to commercial and manufacturing tenants. Beyer Blinder Belle and Marvel Architects are designing the city-funded project, which is expected to open for business in the second half of 2016.
Earlier this week, the City Planning Commission approved Hudson Companies’ proposal to build a 36-story, 139-unit mixed-use building at the site of the Brooklyn Heights Public Library, at 280 Cadman Plaza West, according to Politico….
Over a year ago, YIMBY reported on filings for a seven-story, 75-unit residential and retail development at 84 North 3rd Street, in northern Williamsburg. Now, Hudson Companies has landed $47 million in loans to acquire the land and to fund their development, which spans 84-94 North 3rd Street and 112-125 Metropolitan Avenue. The project will actually be two buildings totaling 95 residential units, with 20% set aside for affordable housing, according to Commercial Observer. One building will be six stories and the other seven, and 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail is expected. Marvel Architects is designing, and ABS Partners Real Estate owns a 50% stake in the property. Completion is slated for late 2017.
Back in June, YIMBY brought you news of construction beginning on Greenland Forest City Partners’ 23-story and 303-unit mixed-use building at 38 Sixth Avenue, in Prospect Heights, which marked their fourth building to break ground at the Pacific Park redevelopment. Now, applications have been filed for a building right across the street at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street, which will also house a public school. Applications call for a 26-story structure totaling 342,788 square feet. The school will measure 69,858 square feet from the sub-cellar through the sixth floors, and the building’s upper portion, starting on the sixth floor, will hold 323 apartments, averaging 848 square feet apiece.
Earlier this summer, YIMBY reported on applications for a 19-story, 86-unit residential building at 146 Pierrepont Street, in Brooklyn Heights, and now renderings of the project have been revealed, per the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. The development site spans through the block to 189 Montague Street, and 6,232 square feet of ground-floor retail space will share both sides of the new building. Above, twenty percent of the 86 rental units (18) will be let at below-market rates. Jonathan Rose Companies is developing, and Marvel Architects is designing.
