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.
In October of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 385-unit residential building at 123 Melrose Street, the site of the former Rheingold Brewery complex in western Bushwick, located three blocks from the Myrtle Avenue stop on the J/M/Z trains. All Year Management has now acquired a piece (28 Stanwix Street) of the mega-block development site – bound by Evergreen Avenue and Stanwick, Melrose, and Noll streets – from Princeton Holdings and Read Property Group for $72.2 million, The Real Deal reported.
Back in September of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a 28-story, 236-unit residential building at 1501 Voorhies Avenue, in southern Sheepshead Bay, located directly adjacent to the Sheepshead Bay stop on the B/Q trains. Now, Sheepshead Bites reports foundation work is well underway on what permits say will eventually be a 275,892-square-foot building. The residential units, which will be a mix of condominiums and rental apartments, should average a relatively spacious 1,169 square feet apiece. The tower’s lower portions will host 13,530 square feet of commercial space, and amenities include 124 parking spaces, many located in an underground garage, storage for 118 bikes, a fitness center, a pool and spa, and and common outdoor spaces. AvalonBay and Muss Development are the developers, and Perkins Eastman Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2018.
