Earlier in May, Crain’s Business broke news about a planned condo conversion for 184 Kent Avenue, an eight-story, 338-unit luxury rental building in northern Williamsburg. Now Curbed has the details: dubbed Austin Nichols House, significant renovations are in the works, which include the combination of former rental units. Kushner Companies, LIVWRK, and Rockpoint Group are the developers and acquired the building for $275 million in early 2015.
Back in late April the Wall Street Journal posted a sliver of the rendering for 126 Madison Avenue, a 47-story residential tower which is being developed by Fosun Property and JD Carlisle at the northern edge of NoMad, on the east side of 30th Street and Fifth Avenue. Now, YIMBY has the full image for the skyscraper, as well as another perspective, giving a much better idea of the 730-foot project’s eventual impact on the Midtown South skyline.
Last summer, Greenpointers said goodbye to a sludge tank at Eagle and West Streets, and now part of the affordable housing for Greenpoint Landing is rising in its place at 33 Eagle Street and 21 Commercial Street.
Last year, Second Development Services paid $11 million for a four-story, turn-of-the-century walk-up at 88 Schermerhorn Street, between Court Street and Boerum Place in Downtown Brooklyn. By November, demo permits had been filed, and now plans are in the works to build a 27-story condo development on the site.
According to Brownstoner, Renaissance Realty Group’s two-story, 34,480 square-foot retail building has topped out at 252-260 Atlantic Avenue, in Boerum Hill. Dubbed Atlantic Galleria, TD Bank, Blink Fitness and Michaels have already signed leases, and opening is expected later this year. SBLM Architects is designing the project.
