Construction is now underway on the 26th floor of the planned 32-story, 440-unit mixed-use building under development at 86 Fleet Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user nyc1. The latest building permits indicate the 351-foot-tall tower will eventually encompass 427,346 square feet. It will host 10,813 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units averaging 871 square feet apiece. Since a leasing office is included, at least a number of the units will be rental apartments. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous March update, when the structure was a single story up. John Catsimatidis’s Red Apple Group is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2017.
Bed-Stuy is experiencing a real estate boom, but renewal has been slow to arrive on the eastern edges of the neighborhood, where aging row houses sit next to squat warehouses and vacant lots.

Late last month, the Jersey City Planning Board approved Amerestate Holdings’s plans for three new mixed-use buildings, ranging from three to eight stories in height, at 1072 West Side Avenue and 1075 West Side Avenue, located along Broadway in the Marion section of Jersey City. Approval was also granted to combine the development assemblage into a single property, Jersey Digs reported. Across the entire project, dubbed Avenir, 486 residential units are planned in addition to 25,452 square feet of retail space. The stretch of West Side Avenue between Broadway and Fayette Avenue will be de-mapped and transformed into a public plaza. Amenities include a 384-car parking garage and rooftop terraces. The single-story building that was once home to Puccini’s Restaurant, a single-story former textile factory, and a four-story apartment building must first be demolished. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is behind the design. The Journal Square PATH station is located eight blocks away.
Property owner Chris Reno, doing business as an anonymous Staten Island-based LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 148 McClean Avenue, in Arrochar. That’s located along Staten Island’s East Shore. The project will measure 4,840 square feet. It will feature 1,425 square feet of commercial-office space on the ground and cellar levels, followed by full-floor residential units on the two floors above. The apartments should average 959 square feet apiece. The project will come with three off-street parking spaces. Joseph Loccisano’s Staten Island-based Sanna & Loccisano Architects is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,000-square-foot property is currently vacant.
