New York City Mayor Eric Adams has announced a multi-phase initiative to create up to 4,000 new apartments in Central Brooklyn. Known as the Atlantic Avenue Mixed-Use Plan, projections also anticipate the creation of more than 1,500 income-restricted homes centered on a 13-block stretch of Atlantic Avenue.
New construction permits have been filed for a 16-story mixed-use building at 1010 Washington Avenue in Morrisania, The Bronx. Located between East 164th Street and Weiher Court, the lot is near the Intervale Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Alab Waintraub under the 1049 Claremont Village LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction is finishing up on 661 Driggs Avenue, a six-story mixed-use building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Bogue Trondowski Architect, the 15,910-square-foot structure will yield ten units spread across 11,720 square feet and 5,000 square feet of retail space for two tenants on the ground floor and cellar level. Brooklyn Rose LLC is the general contractor for the property, which is located by the intersection of Driggs and Metropolitan Avenues.
Construction is now topped out at 651 Fourth Avenue, an 11-story mixed-use building in South Slope, Brooklyn. Designed by INOA Architecture for New Leaf Development, the building’s cellar and ground floors will contain a small retail volume with 26 apartments and amenity spaces above.
Construction is complete on Gemma Gramercy, a 20-story residential building at 202 East 23rd Street in Gramercy Park, Manhattan. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by SMA Equities, the 233-foot-tall, 95,000-square-foot structure is engineered to Passive House standards and yields 108 rental apartments in studio to two-bedroom layouts, with 28 designated for affordable housing, as well as ground-floor retail space. KSK Construction Group served as the general contractor and REAL New York is leading marketing and sales for the project, which is located at the corner of East 23rd Street and Third Avenue on the border with Kips Bay.
