An anonymous developer has filed for a rezoning to make way for a nine-story mixed-use building at 57 Caton Place, in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway station, serviced by the F and G trains. The site is located a block away from Machate Circle, near the southern point of the expansive Prospect Park.

Recent new development in Downtown Brooklyn has been on a historic scale, having been ranked among the most significant growth spurts for a single neighborhood in the city’s history. Plans to build a 29-story residential tower at 550 Clinton Avenue in Clinton Hill will spread the boom slightly further out. YIMBY reported on the design in January of this year when it was first proposed to the Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC). After receiving feedback, its architect Morris Adjmi is returning to the LPC with what may be the final design.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 119 Second Avenue, in the East Village. The development will rise on the site of a tragic explosion from 2015, which claimed two fatalities. After the event, three buildings were demolished and cleared. The new project will fill one of the three addresses. Nexus Development is heading the project, partnering with Immobiliare Capital and Premier Equities. According to the Real Deal, Nexus purchased 119 and 121 Second Avenue in 2017 for $9.15 million. 123 Second Avenue was sold to Ezra Wibowo in 2016.
One week ago, YIMBY reported on the filing of demolition permits for the future Italian American Museum and associated residential building coming to Manhattan’s Little Italy. Today, we get a chance to look at new renderings, revealing an innovative Frank Stella-inspired white-wall interior. Oved Group and Nexus Development Group will be responsible for the development.
Demolition permits have been filed for the home of the Italian American Museum, who operate out of 185, 187, and 189 Grand Street in Little Italy, Manhattan. However, this is not a disappointment for the institution. They had been trying to sell their current location for years, on the condition that they are provided with rent-free space within the replacement. They were finally successful in February 2017, when their buildings were purchased for $14.8 million by Oved Group and Nexus Building Development Group.
