Last year, YIMBY reported on filings for a 48-unit mixed-use development — broken up into eight small buildings — at 32-35 Linden Place, in downtown Flushing, but now the developers, Latimer & Linden Management Corp., have filed for a single structure. A seven-story, 49-unit building is now planned, and 11,187 square feet of heath care facilities will take up the ground and second floors. The residential units, averaging 672 square feet each, will take up floors three through seven. Peter Casini is the new architect of record. The site’s single-story predecessor was demolished in 2008.
Last summer, YIMBY reported on applications for a 23-story, 153-unit mixed-use building at 1580 Nostrand Avenue, in Flatbush, and then we revealed renderings of the project this past March. But developer Hello Living has now placed the site on the market for $28 million, according to the Daily News. The 173,546 square-foot structure has been approved by the DOB, and the site’s former single-story warehouse was demolished earlier this year.
Dafna Development Group has filed applications for a five-story, two-unit mixed-use building at the vacant lot of 728 Prospect Place, in western Crown Heights, equidistant from subways stations serviced by the 2/3/4/5 and A/C trains. The building will total 4,440 square feet in total, with 1,425 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Two duplex units will split the upper four levels, penthouse included. Suresh Manchanda’s L&C Associates is the architect of record.
RedSky Capital recently acquired the three-story commercial building at 585 Fulton Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, for $13 million, and now owns the entire triangular block spanning 565-591 Fulton Street and 398 Flatbush Avenue Extension (excepting the four-story building at 571 Fulton Street). The assemblage currently has 280,000 square feet of development rights, but if No. 571 is acquired, that figure would increase to 330,000 square feet, according to The Real Deal.
Soho Properties, MHP Real Estate Services and Hampshire Hotels Group have closed on the purchase of 19,772 square feet of air rights for their planned 29-story, 384-foot mixed-use commercial building at 560 7th Avenue, in Midtown (at 40th Street), according to Commercial Observer. A 238-key Dream Hotel is planned, which will also feature retail space on the ground & second floor, and restaurants on the third floor and cellar level. Stonehill & Taylor Architects is designing, and demolition of the existing six-story building is expected to commence by the end of this year.
