Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 271 Mother Gaston Boulevard, in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The project will rise seven blocks away from the Atlantic Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the L train, as well as the East New York Train Station, serviced by eight lines of the Long Island Railroad. A few blocks further is the Broadway Junction Subway Station, serviced by the A and C trains, and the Alabama Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Dianping Chen will be responsible for the development.
The Landmark Preservation Commission has approved a new design for the Domino Sugar Factory Refinery building, which is being redeveloped by Two Trees Management Company, and designed by Vishaan Chakrabarti’s Practice for Architecture and Urbanism, aka PAU. The commission made no changes to the proposal, and Two Trees’ Managing Director David Lombino said “Thank you to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for engaging in a productive and thoughtful review, and for supporting this exciting new approach to making the Refinery building the centerpiece of the Domino redevelopment.”
YIMBY has the scoop on a six-story mixed-use building coming to 625 Driggs Avenue, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The project is in one of the most active areas of the neighborhood. The Bedford Avenue Subway Station is five blocks away, which is the first stop in Brooklyn for the L train, and the East River waterfront is another five blocks to the west. Redsky Capital, whose business is a three-minute walk from the site, will be responsible for development.
Today YIMBY has the reveal for 111 Willow Avenue, an attractive new development coming to The Bronx’s booming Port Morris neighborhood, by Newman Design Architects. The industrial-inspired exterior takes influence from its surroundings. Residential and manufacturing buildings predominate in the vicinity, and the site is six blocks away from the Cypress Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 6 train.
Demolition permits have been filed for 726 11th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. The site is expected to become the center for a new Irish Cultural Center, as reported by YIMBY in 2014. The Center was established in 1972 and has been operating out of a tenement building on West 51st Street since then, so the new space will offer a major upgrade.
