Construction has topped out on the 16-story, 522-unit mixed-use building under development at 325 Kent Avenue, located between South 3rd and 4th streets in western Williamsburg. The building’s roof stands 170 feet above street level, although the additional height from the bulkhead isn’t specified in documents. The structure measures 401,246 square feet. There will be 9,378 square feet of retail on parts of the ground and second floors. The residential units should average 712 square feet and twenty percent (105 units) will rent at below market rates through the housing lottery. The project is the first building to top out within the five-building Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development. Two Trees Management Company is the developer. SHoP Architects is the design architect and Ismael Leyva Architects is the executive architect. Completion is anticipated next year.
New renderings, depicting the final design, are now available for the 25-story, 115-unit mixed-use building under development at 565 Broome Street (a.k.a. 100 Varick Street), in Hudson Square. The renderings come as sales have launched for the project’s condominiums. The latest building permits indicate the structure will eventually encompass 322,154 square feet and rise 290 feet above street level to its roof, which doesn’t include the bulkhead.
Brooklyn-based developer Brooklyn Boss has filed applications for a five-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 72 South 2nd Street, located on the corner of Wythe Avenue, in western Williamsburg. The project will measure 13,720 square feet. It will host 3,750 square feet of medical offices on the ground floor, followed by residential units above. The apartments should average 1,160 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Haworth, N.J.-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 3,750-square-foot assemblage is occupied by three- and two-story structures. The new building will be built around the three-story structure on the corner. The Bedford Avenue station on the L train is a little more than 10 minutes away.
Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place for Lower East Side megaproject Essex Crossing. Applications have been filed for a 25-story, mixed-use building at 180 Broome Street, between Delancey, Clinton, and Suffolk streets.
It was revealed in March that plans for a commercial-retail complex at 90-02 168th Street, in downtown Jamaica, had been abandoned, and that the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation (GJDC) would be releasing an updated request for proposals (RFP) for the site. An updated RFP is now available, DNAinfo reported. The GJDC is seeking a team to build a mixed-use project that would include roughly 75,000 square feet of retail space and at least 250 residential units. Between 10 to 20 percent of the apartments would be set aside for artists. A larger portion, which includes some (or possibly all) of the artists’ units, will be designated as affordable, renting at below-market rates through a lottery. Overall, the vacant, 99,500-square-foot site could accommodate up to 497,500 square feet of mixed-use development. Applications for the RFP are due December 2nd, and the project should be complete by 2019.
