The last year has been somewhat tumultuous for 319 Schermerhorn Street, which was originally set to be developed a mysterious “SC Nevins LLC.” In April, it was announced that Adam America and the Naveh Shuster Group purchased the site, likely for over $30 million, and with the new ownership comes a new design, which YIMBY can now reveal thanks to a watchful tipster.
In December, YIMBY revealed plans and possible renderings for a 51-story tower at 281 Fifth Avenue, and now permits have been filed for the high-rise condo development at the corner of 30th Street.
Building attractive affordable housing on a limited budget is an issue developers and designers throughout the city wrestle with on a daily basis. So YIMBY talked to a few architects behind innovative affordable and supportive projects about what works—materials, layouts, green features—and how proposed zoning changes might shape new buildings.
An LLC has filed applications for a five-story, 20-unit residential building measuring 14,520 square feet at 44 Stanhope Street, in central Bushwick. DJLU Architects is designing, and an existing two-story abode must first be demolished.
