The redevelopment of the Dime Savings Bank in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, will result in one of the neighborhood’s tallest buildings, and today YIMBY has fresh renderings for the project, designed by Fogarty Finger Architects. Yesterday, The Real Deal reported that Charney Construction & Development and Tavros Capital Partners have acquired a $150 million loan to fund construction and renovation work on the historic bank and new 22-story tower. The developers purchased the site in March of 2016 for $80 million.
Earlier this week we reported on demolition filings to make way for construction of the new Irish Arts Center. The permits were to clear away most of 726 11th Avenue to expand the center’s footing in Hell’s Kitchen. Now, YIMBY has the reveal for new renderings of how the IAC will look from 11th Avenue, with an apparent 40% decrease in square footage.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a nine-story residential building at 514 Herkimer Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is right next to the large, eight-story Interfaith Medical Center complex. The Kingston-Throop Avenue Subway Station is four blocks away, serviced by the A and C trains.
Permits have been filed for two residential buildings at 3588 and 3592 Greystone Avenue, in The Bronx’s Fieldston neighborhood. The site is located on the top of a steep slope, with no large buildings prohibiting views of the Kingsbridge neighborhood and Van Cortlandt Park below. The 238th Street Station is eight blocks away, serviced by the 1 train. Key Construction will be responsible for development.
The last time YIMBY reported on plans for 75-83 Nassau Street was back in June of 2015, when we featured a fresh set of renderings for the 40-story tower, which is being designed by ODA New York. Building applications were filed a few months before that, in March of 2015, but the site’s old structural occupants remain extant. Now, as of last week, demolition permits have finally been issued, indicating developer Lexin Capital is about to begin work.
