The Bogota Planning Board has approved a 421-unit mixed-use project proposed on the 14-acre development site at 238 West Fort Lee Road, along the Hackensack River in the Bergen County, N.J., borough of Bogota. Dubbed The River Club, the project will feature six residential buildings, each to rise either four or five stories in height. Ten percent, or 42 apartments, will be designated as affordable housing, Jersey Digs reported. There will also be retail space along West Fort Lee Road, as well as a two-story clubhouse and a 2,200-foot-long riverfront promenade. River Development is the developer and B&R Engineering is responsible for the infrastructure work. C-I Design Inc. is the architect.

The de Blasio administration is looking for a development team to construct up to 200 affordable residential units at 3265 Atlantic Avenue, also known as the Dinsmore-Chestnut site, in the Cypress Hills section of East New York. The 81,175-square-foot site, located on the corner of Chestnut Street, is vacant. The property was excluded from the East New York rezoning approved earlier this year, Crain’s reported. It’s expected that the site will eventually receive an individual rezoning, which would be required if the current plans go forward. The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development released a request for proposals yesterday. Proposals are due March 22, 2017.
Kushner Companies, LIVWRK, and the CIM Group have closed on the purchase, for $345 million, of the 135,000-square-foot development site at 85 Jay Street, in DUMBO. The full-block property, currently vacant, could accommodate up to 1.1-million square feet of mixed-use development, the New York Post reported. The new owners plan to develop the site within current zoning laws. A project “with mixed uses” is planned, although plans are very preliminary. It was reported earlier that the site could host as many as 1,000 residential units. The team is in the process of hiring architects and consultants.
A Queens-based property owner has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 41-16 Haight Street, in downtown Flushing.

The apartments should average 724 square feet apiece, indicative of rental units. Robert H. Lin’s Flushing-based A&T Engineering is the applicant of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot lot is occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in November.
