Over a year ago, YIMBY reported on applications for a 19-story, 298-unit residential building at 535 Carlton Avenue, in Prospect Heights. The project is one of 15 buildings in the Pacific Park mega development being constructed by Forest City Ratner and Greenland Group. Crain’s reported on the site’s groundbreaking last December, and now the building is five stories above street level, per photos by Tectonic. Ground-floor retail space will measure 8,324 square feet and the building’s rental units will average 925 square feet apiece. COOKFOX Architects is designing, and completion is expected in 2017.
Architect Morris Adjmi first filed applications for six stories of condos at 138 North 10th Street in Williamsburg nearly a year ago, and now YIMBY has a rendering for the development between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue.
New construction has been growing in southern Bushwick for a few years, but small homeowners are just beginning to cash in on the rising rents by adding extra stories and apartments to their homes. Yesterday the owner of a humble brick house at 223 Central Avenue in Bushwick filed plans to triple the size of the two-story building.
Back in September, the latest renderings were revealed of HFZ Capital Group’s 33-story mixed-use hotel and residential building planned at 12-20 West 40th Street, along Bryant Park in Midtown, and now Tectonic has the latest photos of its construction. The structure is currently six stories above street level and features a slight setback past the fifth floor. The first five floors are flush with the existing street wall. Upon completion in early 2017, The Bryant (not to be confused with the Bryant Park Hotel) will have 230 hotel rooms and 57 condos, as well as retail space and a restaurant on the ground floor. David Chipperfield is the design architect.
Near the end of 2013, Brownstoner reported on applications for Douglaston Development’s 40-story, 554-unit residential tower at 2 North 6th Place, on Williamsburg’s northern stretch of East River waterfront, and now photos by Tectonic show the building under construction. It appears to be 11 stories above street level. Based on a rendering from J&A Concrete, the base is close to being structurally complete. A small 678 square-foot retail unit is planned on the ground floor and units will average 925 square feet apiece. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is designing and completion is expected in 2017.
