YIMBY has an update on construction for 207 West 79th Street, a 13-story residential building on the Upper West Side. Our last report on the site’s progress in September of 2016 showed construction had just reached the seventh floor, with no façade installation underway. The site is just an Avenue away from the American Natural History Museum, and two Avenues away from Central Park. There is close access to the 1, 2, A, B, and C trains by foot.
Permits have been filed for two lots at 643 and 645 5th Avenue, in South Slope, Brooklyn. Developer Ranco Capital LLC hopes to create two mixed-use buildings, rising four and six floors respectively. The location is just blocks from the scenic Greenwood Cemetery, and surrounded by commercial retail. The nearest subway station, 25th Street, is a half-mile away, and serviced by the D, N, R, and W trains.
Construction is complete, and sales have officially begun for a 36-unit building at 554 Fourth Avenue, in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The site is seven blocks away from the 9th Street Subway Station, serviced by the D, F, G, N, R, and W trains. Also nearby is the Gowanus Canal. Residents will start to occupy the 11-story structure by mid-2018. Brookland Capital is responsible for development, and Douglas Elliman’s Tavivian Team will lead sales and marketing.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 28 Herbert Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The development comes at the neighborhood border with Greenpoint, and will be just a few blocks away from Monsignor McGolrick Park. The site is just a third of a mile from the Graham Street station, serviced by the L train. An anonymous LLC will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story school at 156 17th Street, in Greenwood, Brooklyn. The site is nine blocks away from both the 25th Street Station and 9th Street Station, serviced by the D, N, R, and W trains. SDS Brooklyn will be responsible for the development, which suggests this will not be a public school.
