Back in November, YIMBY posted the first renderings for 76 Eleventh Avenue, which is being developed by HFZ Capital. Now, we have a new set of images for the project, which is being designed by Bjarke Ingels Group. They show major tweaks to the formerly jigsaw-like design, and accompanied EB-5 materials for the project sent to YIMBY.
JDS Development is already building a 1,400-foot-tall skyscraper at 111 West 57th Street, and now they’re getting ready to erect a rival supertall at 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension in Downtown Brooklyn.

Joseph Deutsch, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 475 Woodward Avenue, in Ridgewood, located 10 blocks northwest of the Forest Avenue stop on the M train. The entire building will measure 6,526 square feet in total, but residential units will spread across 4,996 square feet of space. That means average configurations of 714 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Oleg Ruditser’s Brooklyn-based M.E.P. Designs Inc. is the applicant of record. Permits to demolish the existing two-story house were filed in December.
JIH Builders Group has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit residential building at 233 Buffalo Avenue, on the eastern end of Crown Heights, located six blocks from the Crown Heights – Utica Avenue stop on the 3, 4, and 5 trains.

Rego Park-based Diego Aguilera Architects is the applicant of record. An existing two-story building must first be demolished.
