Aaron Karpen and Anshel Friedman have filed applications for a 12-story, 125-unit mixed-use building at 541 Fourth Avenue, in southern Park Slope, two blocks north of the R train’s stop at Prospect Avenue. The building will measure a total 103,602 square feet, which includes 10,830 square feet of commercial-retail on the ground floor. Beginning on the second floor, the rental units will average 742 square feet apiece. Karl Fischer is designing. Eight three-story townhouses spanning 541-555 4th Avenue will have to be demolished, and construction is slated to begin this December, per The Real Deal.
130-134 Holdings LLC, Spiritos Properties and Icor Associates are planning to develop a 10-story, 120-foot-tall residential building at 475 West 18th Street, in West Chelsea, according to the Wall Street Journal. The building — dubbed West 475 — would be built of just wood, and is being designed by SHoP Architects. Per Curbed, the building could begin construction in early 2016. The site also spans 130-134 10th Avenue, and three townhouses must first be demolished.
Back in January, the Daily News posted the first rendering for a new cantilevering project coming to 251 West 14th Street, in West Chelsea. Now, we have an updated look at the building, which is being designed by ODA and developed by B+B Capital.
Early last year, Curbed revealed a glassy rendering for a condo project at 200 South 3rd Street in Williamsburg. Now YIMBY has a rendering for a completely revamped version of the building that will rise between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street.
As Brooklyn’s rising rents pushed further south, Flatbush saw a flood of filings in the first few months of 2015. There’s been a lull, thanks to uncertainty over the future of the 421-a tax abatement, but development seems to be picking up again in the central Brooklyn neighborhood. Plans were filed yesterday to build a seven-story, 24-unit building at 1084 Rogers Avenue, between Cortelyou and Clarendon Roads and a short walk from the Beverly Road 2/5 stop.
