9 DeKalb Avenue has passed a milestone in its way to becoming the first supertall skyscraper in the outer boroughs. The 93-story residential tower recently surpassed the 720-foot roof height of Brooklyn Point, giving it the title of the tallest structure in Brooklyn. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, 9 DeKalb Avenue will stand 1,066 feet tall and yield 450 rental apartments and 150 condominiums. The site is bound by Flatbush Avenue Extension to the northeast, Fleet Street to the northwest, the landmark Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn to the southwest, and DeKalb Avenue to the south.
Construction is now complete on 11-19 Jane Street, a six-story residential building in Manhattan’s West Village. Designed by London-based firm Chipperfield Architects and developed by Edward Minskoff of Minskoff Equities, the 31,000-square-foot project yields seven residential units, averaging 2,382 square feet each, and ground-floor retail space. The property is located on a wide plot between Greenwich Street and Eighth Avenue.
Preliminary renderings have been revealed for 1045 Atlantic Avenue, a proposed 17-story mixed-use building in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The structure is planned to yield over 477,000 square feet of floor space with a mix of residential, retail, office space, and community facilities.
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 26-02 4th Street, a seven-story mixed-use residential building in Astoria, Queens. Designed by Gerald Caliendo Architects, the structure will yield 53,438 square feet and 46 units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 14 units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $49,715 to $192,400.
Construction has reached completion on the second phase of The Vantage Collection, a two-tower residential complex in Jersey City. Addressed as 1 Park View Avenue, the rectangular 44-story residential tower is an exact architectural twin of its adjacent sibling, 33 Park View Avenue, and the two are connected by a podium with 15,000 square feet of retail space. The complex as a whole is designed by S9 Architecture and developed by Fisher Organization, and yields 900 apartments. 1 Park View Avenue features 452 homes that range from studios to two-bedroom units, with the majority offering unobstructed views of the New York Harbor and year-round daylight exposure. The buildings sit on a full-block parcel bound by Park View Avenue to the north, Marin Boulevard to the east, South Cove to the south, and St. Peter’s Street to the west. Leasing has begun for both towers, and the gallery is located at 33 Park View Avenue.
