Sequoia Development Group is currently converting the four-story, 55,000 square-foot former paper mill at 456 Johnson Avenue, in East Williamsburg, into a mixed-use commercial property. According to The Real Deal, the upper three floors will have a total of 35 office units, each measuring between 900 and 2,200 square feet apiece. Retail space is planned on the ground floor and the building is being dubbed Paper Mill. The developer is leasing the property from its owner, Maki Realty Corp. Red Hook-based ND Architecture & Design is designing the conversion.
Earlier this year, YIMBY found an on-site drawing for a new development coming to 44 Kent Street, in Greenpoint. The plans were originally created for Cayuga Capital, but the firm sold the property for $8,750,000 last year to an LLC. Now, we can reveal that Pinny and Moishe Loketch of the Loketch Group are the new developers, and the design has also seen major changes, with Nataliya Donskoy’s ND Architecture and Design taking over the project.
Urban View Realty has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1257 Jefferson Avenue, in southern Bushwick, five blocks from the Halsey Street stop on the J train. The building will measure 8,400 square feet in total, which means units will average 1,050 square feet apiece. The two units on the fourth floor will also have access to a private roof terrace. Nataliya Donskoy’s Brooklyn-based ND Architecture & Design is the applicant of record. An existing two-story townhouse must be demolished prior to construction.
Last year, YIMBY revealed renderings of The Iconic Group’s planned five-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 170 South 1st Street, in western Williamsburg. Now Brownstoner reports the project is under construction, with steel framing above street level. The building will measure 16,183 square feet, and includes 4,130 and 435 square feet of warehouse/retail and community space, respectively. ND Architecture & Design is the architect of record, and completion is likely expected in 2016.
