Dyker Heights-based Francesco Mancini has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit residential building at 73 Bay 47th Street, in southwestern Gravesend, two blocks from the D train’s stop at Bay 50th Street. The building will measure 9,585 square feet on a relatively large 80-foot-wide lot, and units will average 1,065 square feet. Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story brick house must first be demolished.
Property owner Yair Bohadana has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1173 Tinton Avenue, in Morrisania, six blocks north of the Prospect Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure 5,324 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 665 square feet apiece. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and the site’s two-story predecessor was demolished in 2001.
Property owner Jenel Management is clearing out the three-story retail building at 399 Knickerbocker Avenue, in northern Bushwick, ahead of planned renovations, according to DNAinfo. The structure will be expanded and transformed into a 42,500 square-foot commercial building, featuring six retail units — three on the ground floor, followed by two on the second floor and one on the third. Adrian Figueroa’s Hudson Square-based SRA Architecture is designing, and the current retail tenant is preparing to vacate.
Earlier this year, YIMBY brought you a proposal for the transformation of One Wall Street created by CetraRuddy. While that version of the tower will remain unbuilt, we now have the first rendering of actual plans, created by Robert A.M. Stern for developer Macklowe Properties, as well as word that the development is seeking $100 million in EB-5 funding, or 6.6% of its projected cost of $1.502 billion.
The condo-fication of 14th Street continues with 209 West 14th Street, where a four-story building has just been demolished to make way for eleven stories of apartments. A YIMBY reader sent along photos of a new rendering posted on the construction fence between Seventh and Eighth Avenues last week.
