In September of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a 25-story mixed-use residential and retail building at 210 Livingston Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, and now Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates are close to landing $158 million in construction loans for the project. The building will have 368 residential units, which is an increase from the 349 reported last year, and more than 14,000 square feet of retail space is planned. Handel Architects is designing, and a 175,000 square-foot office building was demolished to make way for the tower, per The Real Deal.
Late last year, YIMBY posted a video featuring renderings of plans for a new 63-story residential tower at 118 Fulton Street. The design featured in the film was originally created for the Lightstone Group, which sold off 112-118 Fulton Street to Carmel Partners last September for $171 million. But while the site’s developer has changed, its appearance has seemingly stayed the same, and a new on-site rendering confirms that a design similar to the one previously posted will be built.
In the summer of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a nine-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 41-04 27th Street, in Long Island City, and now foundation work is underway, according to The Court Square Blog. The building will measure 24,987 square feet, and include 4,073 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Apartments will begin on the second floor and average 654 square feet each. A Rego Park-based LLC is developing, and Elmhurst-based Chang Hwa Tan is the architect of record.
SL Green’s planned tower next to Grand Central is making significant headway, and demolition for the site’s former buildings is already ongoing. And while we had previously revealed several prospective views of the 1,500-foot supertall, which was approved by the City Council this past May, a tipster has sent along a few more renderings, giving a more comprehensive overview of the tower within the context of its Midtown surrounds.
Back in May, YIMBY brought you news that the Dime Savings Bank development assemblage — located around but not including the two-story commercial building at 209 Havemeyer Street, in central Williamsburg — was hitting the market, and now it appears Tavros Capital and Charney Construction & Development are in contract to purchase the site. According to Commercial Observer, Dime is selling the 50,000 square-foot assemblage for $80 million, which could accommodate a mixed-use development of 230,500 square feet. The developers are expected to close on the purchase in early 2016.
