Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 1283 Ocean Avenue in Flatbush-Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Avenue H subway station serviced by the Q trains, and ten blocks away from the Flatbush Avenue subway station, end of the line for 2 and 5 trains and center of a substantial commercial intersection. Vision Developers LLC is responsible for the development.
Last week, a proposal for a major new development at 6208 8th Avenue, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, began to wind its way through the City’s planning processes. Today, we have the exclusive first look at another mega-project proposed directly across the street, at 6205 8th Avenue, where DXA Studio has designed an enormous two-block plan that would cover even more of the open railway tracks that currently leave the neighborhood bereft of its obvious potential.
Permits have been filed for two eight-story mixed-use buildings at 376 and 378 Flushing Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is right on the border with Williamsburg. The Flushing Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train, is nine blocks away. Manhattan-based Riverside Developers USA is behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 43-36 53rd Street in Woodside, Queens. The site is two blocks away from the 52nd Street Lincoln Avenue subway station, serviced by the 7 trains. The lot is also right next to the Queens Boulevard thoroughfare, which extends from JFK Airport to the Queensboro Bridge, connecting Queens with Midtown Manhattan. Owner Jan How Kang is listed as responsible for the development.
The newest Bjarke Ingels Group-designed project has now partially topped out. The taller 36-story component of the XI, at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea, has reached this milestone when just seven months ago, it was merely two stories high. With only a few months in between YIMBY’s visits, the enormous scale of the new building is quite shocking, as it rose incredibly quickly. The theatric nature of the twisting concrete sculpture certainly catches the attention of visitors from the High Line park, where many tourists are already snapping photographs. HFZ Capital Group is responsible for the development.
