Back in August of 2015, developers broke ground on the two-building, 30-unit condominium development planned at 465 Pacific Street (a.k.a. 472 Atlantic Avenue), in Boerum Hill. Brownstoner now reports the southern seven-story portion, located on Pacific Street, has topped out, and the six-story portion, being built on Atlantic Avenue, is three stories above street level. The entire project will encompass 84,767 square feet, and the northern building will include 6,982 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The condos will come in one- to five-bedroom configurations and 14 of them will feature private outdoor space. Amenities include a lounge, a children’s playroom, a gym, a 1,300-square-foot rooftop terrace, and storage space. Aria Development Group and Avery Hall Investments are developing, and Morris Adjmi Architects is designing. Completion is expected in late 2017.
This past summer, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 18-story, 63-unit mixed-use building planned at 147 East 86th Street (a.k.a 1289 Lexington Avenue), on the Upper East Side.

The new building will span 229,751 square feet in total, and the cellar through the second floors will contain 26,718 square feet of commercial space. The NY Sports Club is expected to occupy two floors in the building. The third floor will contain residential amenity space, featuring lounge spaces, a children’s playroom, and a gym. The condominium units, ranging from two- to five-bedrooms and averaging 2,800 square feet apiece, will also begin on the third floor.

In October, complete renderings were revealed of Extell Development’s 80-story, 815-unit condominium tower at 252 South Street, in the Two Bridges section of the Lower East Side.

The project is dubbed One Manhattan Square and being designed by Adam Associates. It will include 90,000 square feet of amenity space in total and a separate 13-story, 205-unit affordable residential building. There will also be roughly 20,000 square feet of retail space.

Simon Baron Development has acquired the two-story commercial property at 12 Franklin Street, in southern Greenpoint, for $24 million, according to The Real Deal. Located six blocks from the Nassau Avenue stop on the G train, the property is within the proposed Enhanced Business District, which would allow developers to trade light manufacturing space for extra office space in the North Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone. Before proposing to build anything, Baron is waiting to see how well the proposed rezoning works. Under current zoning, the property could accommodate a new 55,500 square-foot commercial building, or if community facility space is included, a 133,320 square-foot building.
