Back in December of 2014, Brownstoner revealed renderings of the planned five-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 533 Myrtle Avenue (a.k.a. 531 Myrtle Avenue), in Clinton Hill. Now, the project has topped out and curtain wall installation is underway, according to the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. There will be 5,868 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground and cellar levels. The residential units will begin on the second floor and should average 684 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include bike storage space, a fitness center, a refuse room, and a 982 square-foot rooftop terrace. Greystone Property Development is the developer and AB Architekten is behind the design. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
Last week, Chelsea-based developer and design firm Flank acquired the development assemblage at 41-53 South 3rd Street, in Williamsburg, and now the firm is purchasing another assemblage of properties two blocks to the north. Frank is paying $21.6 million for the two-story building at 70 Grand Street, the corner lot at 72 Grand Street, and the single- and two-story buildings at 314-326 Wythe Avenue, according to the Wall Street Journal. The property assemblage could accommodate 26,904 square feet of new development if the current structures are demolished. Current plans call for the renovation of some of the buildings, in addition to the construction of new ones (which means something is likely to be demolished). The program will include residential units, office space, and retail.
Bronx-based property owner Nissan Cohen has filed applications for a three-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 841A Morris Park Avenue, in Van Nest, located eight blocks from the Bronx Park East stop on the 2/5 trains. The structure will encompass 10,130 square feet and will feature 1,336 square feet of ground-floor retail space, in addition to a 389 square-foot doctors office, also located on the ground floor. The residential units will be located on the second and third floors and will average a rental-sized 714 square feet apiece. Jamaica-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record. The 51-foot-wide, 4,914-square-foot lot is currently vacant.
In September of 2014, renderings were revealed of the six-story, 70-unit residential conversion of the warehouse at 160 Imlay Street, in Red Hook. Construction has been underway since 2014 on the 224,809-square-foot structure, and now the Daily Brooklyn Eagle has the latest update on the progress. The 70-foot-tall structure has yet to receive its windows, but it appears installation may be imminent. The condos should average a spacious 2,648 square feet apiece, and will come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts. Roughly 39,500 square feet of commercial space will be located on the ground and second floors, along with amenities like bike storage, private storage space, a fitness center, and a small parking garage. Est4te Four is the developer, AA Studio is the design architect, and Jeffrey Cole Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected in the spring of 2017.
Back in September of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 67-unit apartment-hotel at 138-142 Bowery, in Little Italy. Now, Bowery Boogie has revealed renderings of the project and has reported that demolition of the site’s existing two- and three-story structures has been completed. The new building will encompass 53,088 square feet, and will host 46 hotel rooms and 21 residential units. There will be commercial-retail space on the cellar, ground, and mezzanine levels, so it’s difficult to estimate the size of the hotel rooms. The apartments will span the sixth through eights floors and should average a rental-sized 658 square feet apiece. Emmut Properties is the developer and New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is serving as the applicant of record. Completion is expected in 2017. The developer closed on the development assemblage last October for $47 million.
