Permits Filed: 195 Hawthorne Street, Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Just east of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, Prospect Lefferts Gardens is seeing almost as much new construction as its pricier neighbor to the north, Crown Heights. Filings for new buildings roll in every few weeks, ranging from little market-rate developments to partially affordable megaprojects from developer Hudson Companies. Now we have an application for a five-story apartment building at 195 Hawthorne Street, between Bedford and Rogers Avenues.

New Renderings, Update For 11-Story Condo Project At 520 West 28th Street, West Chelsea

Over the summer, Related Companies’ 11-story, 39-unit mixed-use building at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, was just starting to climb above street level, and now Curbed has a slew of new exterior and interior renderings via the project’s teaser site. The building will be topped by a 6,391 square-foot triplex penthouse, and 11,180 square feet of retail space is planned on the ground floor.

The New York Stock Exchange — expected to vacate the structure next August — owns the land under the building, and the lease expires in 2081.


The Death and Life of the Bancroft Building, 1896-2015

Since New York’s earliest days, church organizations have held a considerable amount of the city’s real estate, which they use not only for direct religious services, but also as a means of generating income.
