Renderings for a new six-story affordable-housing project have been revealed at 960 Simpson Street, in The Bronx’s Hunts Point neighborhood. YIMBY last reported on the development in February of 2016. The site is just a block away from the Simpson Street Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The lot is located within a small commercial center, spreading over four blocks. Properties Resources Corporation will be responsible for the development.
Renderings reveal updated design by T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects of 300 Kenmore Road in the landmark neighborhood of Douglaston, Queens. YIMBY reported on the project proposal in January of this year. The project replaces a two-story garage building that was converted to an apartment. Douglaston is an upper-middle-class residential neighborhood recognized as an NYC Historic District in 2004.
Back in July of 2015, YIMBY reported on initial new building applications for 40 Debevoise Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Now, new permits have been pulled, indicating the site will grow substantially larger than first reported, with its height increasing from four floors to eight, and the total square footage roughly doubling.
Renderings have been revealed for the four-story 836 Monroe Street development in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The new design has a classical touch, with a fluted pilaster in the center of the façade. Other notable elements are the framed faux-balconies, and light design. Joshua Felix of Beam Group is responsible for the facade.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for renderings of 76-28 Parsons Boulevard, in Flushing, Queens. The design, by Tan Architects, shows a low-rise residential structure with sixteen balconies, and evidence of a public terrace on the rooftop. The façade is defined by the balconies and several bands of brown, black, grey, and limestone.
