William Schneider, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 100 Suydam Street, in western Bushwick, located two blocks from the Central Avenue stop on the M train. The new building will encompass 13,435 square feet and will include 1,846 and 574 square feet retail and community facility space, respectively, on the ground floor. The residential units should average a rental-sized 755 square feet apiece, and two of the three residential units on the fourth floor will feature penthouse space on a fifth-floor level. Ruslan Goychayev’s Brooklyn-based RSLN Architecture is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in early 2015 for the existing single-story structure at 102 Suydam Street.
An abandoned factory on the southern edge of Borough Park was demolished last year, and now new rental apartments are rising in its place. YIMBY has a look at the design for the new building at 968 60th Street, near the border with Sunset Park and Dyker Heights.
When YIMBY last reported on the six-story, five-unit residential project at 52 Wooster Street, located at the corner of Broome Street in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, a teaser site had just been launched. Now, thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that much more has been accomplished.
Southern Crown Heights isn’t as thick with new construction as the area north of Eastern Parkway, but new apartments are in the works on the low-slung blocks around Empire Boulevard. Last week YIMBY noticed new building applications for a seven-story residential development at 264 Sullivan Place, between Rogers and Nostrand Avenues.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 57-unit mixed-income rental project at 221 East 138th Street, in Mott Haven, but now Tahoe Development is swapping plans for a seven-story, 50-unit market-rate condominium building. Welcome2TheBronx reports the developer is abandoning plans to include affordable units due to cost concerns. It would also be the first market-rate condo project in the South Bronx since the 2008 financial crisis. The condos will come in studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, and the new building will contain ground-floor retail space as previously planned. Hudson Square’s Michael Muroff Architect is the architect of record. The existing two-story warehouse is currently being demolished.
