Two South Williamsburg-based investors hope to rezone three industrial properties in northern Bedford-Stuyvesant to make way for a large residential project with nearly 300 apartments spread across two buildings. Today we have the first look at the development, which will rise near the Brooklyn Navy Yard at 376-378 Flushing Avenue and 43 Franklin Avenue.
Foundation work is now underway on the seven-story, six-unit mixed-use building under development at 34 East 13th Street, located on the corner of University Place in Greenwich Village. The site, on the right half of the image below, can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will measure 22,995 square feet and rise 74 feet in height, not including the bulkhead. There will be 2,135 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by full-floor residential condominiums on the second through seventh floors. The units should average 2,881 square feet apiece. Ranger Properties is the developer and Financial District-based Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design. Completion is anticipated in 2017.
Construction is now five stories above street level on the northern portion of the 11-story, 36-unit mixed-use complex under development at 528 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 96,162-square-foot project, dubbed Jardim, will boast 11-story components along both the West 27th and West 28th street fronts. The tower portions will connect via a single-story base, which will include 6,490 square feet of retail space. The residential units, beginning on the second floor, will be condominiums and should average 2,489 square feet apiece. Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group are the developers. Sao Paulo, Brazil-based Isay Weinfeld is the design architect, while Hell’s Kitchen-based SBLM Architects is the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) has launched a request for proposals (RFP) for the city-owned development site consisting of 41 Aetna Street and the southern portion of 52 Aetna Street, located in downtown Jersey City’s Liberty Harbor section. The city is seeking a developer that would build a mixed-use project. The site could accommodate residential units, commercial spaces such as offices, retail, and hotels, and community spaces such as academic and medical facilities. Significant infrastructure work must also be done by the developer, Jersey Digs reported. The two-acre plot contains a number of small industrial structures and must first be remediated. Proposals are due December 16.
Construction has topped out on the five-story, eight-unit mixed-use project under development at 300 Washington Street, located on the corner of Third Street in Hoboken, New Jersey. The new building will have retail space on the ground floor and residential units on the upper four floors, although it’s not known if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. Hoboken-based Minervini Vandermark Architecture is behind the design, Jersey Digs reported. Completion can probably be expected in 2017. The project is six blocks from Hoboken Terminal.
