74 Trinity Place will be a substantial addition to the Financial District’s tapestry of buildings, and now, work for the project is starting to progress above ground level. Once complete, the 26-story tower will bring 310,000 square feet of new office space to the neighborhood, which is somewhat of a surprise, since it was originally expected to house condominiums.
New renderings are out for the conversion and expansion of the old church at 120 Java Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and YIMBY has the exclusive close-ups. The project is located just three blocks away from the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G trains. The existing structure had functioned as the parish hall for a nearby Episcopal church, Church of the Ascension. Developer Chris Horrigan, of Horrigan Companies, purchased the site in July of 2015 for $4,050,000, along with air rights from the church’s place of worship at 127 Kent Street. The building had been used as a relief spot during Hurricane Sandy. The project has since passed hands, and now SL Development is leading its dramatic transformation and residential rebirth.
120 Java Street isn’t the only church-to-residential project YIMBY can reveal today. We also have a fresh rendering for 24 Fourth Avenue, rising just steps from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, in Boerum Hill. Designed by ODA Architecture, the 12-story, mixed-use building will contain 72 residences, ground floor retail, a community facility, and an enclosed parking structure with accommodations for 16 vehicles.
Permits have been filed for a ten-story medical facility at 133-20 41st Road in Flushing, Queens. The site is three blocks away from the Main Street Subway Station, end of the line for 7 trains in Queens. Great Stone NY is behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 246 Maple Street, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. The site is four blocks away from the Sterling Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Croxdale Real Estate Management will be responsible for the development.
