Renderings from Xenolith Partners and Alexander Gorlin Architects reveal a new eight-story building at 760 Soundview Avenue in Soundview, The Bronx. The parcel is currently in pre-construction, but will eventually replace the Soundview Presbyterian Church with a mix of rental apartments, an updated chapel building, and a community facility.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 491 Herkimer Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 45 Lenox Road in Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Demolition work has stalled at 570 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a proposed 550-foot-tall skyscraper designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Slate Property Group. Scaffolding and blue netting still shroud the main façade of the existing building, and it appears that little progress has been made since YIMBY’s January visit. As planned, the new development would yield a mixture of market-rate apartments, affordable housing, retail, and small-scale office space.
