A small, boutique condo project is about to replace a century-old brick apartment building at 371 Baltic Street, in the borderlands between Boerum Hill, Gowanus, and Carroll Gardens. YIMBY has renderings of the four-story building, which will rise between Smith and Hoyt streets, near Gowanus Houses.
A six-story apartment building may grow on a vacant lot at 45 Lenox Road, between Flatbush and Bedford avenues in Flatbush.
The proposal to renovate a commercial building in the NoHo Historic District didn’t fly with the members of the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday. The LPC rejected the proposal presented for 348 Lafayette Street, located on the southwest corner of Lafayette and Bond streets.
In 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 36-story, 372-unit residential building at 225 East 39th Street (a.k.a. 222 East 40th Street), in Murray Hill, and then foundation work began last summer. Thanks to photos by Tectonic, we can see the structure is now 16 stories above street level and rising. When the building is completed in the spring of 2017, it will encompass 373,248 square feet, with 343,187 square feet being used as residential space. The rental apartments will average 922 square feet apiece, and amenities include a fitness facility, children’s playroom, lounges, a café, a library, a courtyard garden, and a 35th-floor rooftop deck. Twenty percent of the apartments will rent at below-market rates. Fisher Brothers is developing the project and Handel Architects is designing it.
Elizabeth McDonald, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for three four-story, multi-family residential buildings at 135-139 Sackett Street, in the Columbia Street Waterfront District, located seven blocks from the Carroll Street stop on the F and G trains. Each of the buildings will contain three residential units and will individually measure between 4,178 and 4,196 square feet. It appears each unit will spread across at least an entire floor, although each building also has a penthouse on the fourth floor. The penthouse space will probably be attached to the third-floor unit. Across the entire development, units should average 1,395 square feet apiece, so condos are definitely in the works. New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record.
