Since a vast industrial swath of Mott Haven was rezoned in the South Bronx several years ago, affordable housing developers have slowly begun to build in the area, taking advantage of large vacant lots and cheap, derelict factories. One such developer has filed plans for a 12-story affordable building at 491 Gerard Avenue, a block over from the Major Deegan Expressway and a short walk from the 2, 4 and 5 trains at 149th Street-Grand Concourse.
Alloy and Monadnock Development’s One John Street condos are rising quickly along the Dumbo waterfront in Brooklyn Bridge Park, already reaching 10 stories, after rising out of the ground only earlier this year.
YIMBY brought you news in December of 2013 regarding Monadnock’s planned nine-story, 55-unit residential building at 335 East 27th Street, in Kips Bay. Now, Curbed reports the first of 66 modules has been lifted into place. Construction will last through the summer, and completion is expected in October or November. nARCHITECTS is designing, and 22 units are being set aside as affordable.
YIMBY brought you news early last year of a the 12-story, 42-condo-unit mixed-use building planned for 1 John Street, in Dumbo, and now the project is now rising. Alloy Development and Monadnock Development are developing the building, which is three or four stories up, according to Curbed. An in-house team at Alloy is designing, and completion is expected by 2016.
Per Crain’s Business, the City has picked Monadnock Development to develop a mid-rise 208-unit all-affordable mixed-use building at the vacant lot of 133-45 41st Avenue, in Downtown Flushing; the de Blasio administration has made an effort to redevelop that specific underutilized lot. The project is being dubbed One Flushing, and retail and community space is planned for the ground floor; Bernheimer Architecture is designing.
