2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the New York City landmarks law. There were occasions to celebrate, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission designated six individual landmarks and four historic districts. 2016 was considerably busier for the commission. It designated 40 individual landmarks and two historic districts, including 12 new Midtown East landmarks and 26 sites from its backlog. Here are all of them, for you to take in as the year comes to a close.
Since Fortis Property Group announced last month that it would develop the former Long Island College Hospital site in Cobble Hill without a rezoning, it has filed plans for two mid-rise buildings there. Now the Dumbo-based firm has submitted applications for a 28-story development at 339 Hicks Street, between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street.
Brooklyn-based property owner Kazi Billah has filed applications for a six-story, 18-unit mixed-use building at 302 Broadway, located on the corner of Marcy Avenue in the heart of Williamsburg. The project will measure 26,070 square feet and rise 65 feet to its roof. There will be 5,790 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by 5,790 square feet of medical offices on the second floor. There will be 18 residential units, averaging 805 square feet apiece, across the fourth through sixth floors. A 12-car garage will be located on the third floor.
Brooklyn-based Jonico Construction & Development has filed applications for a second three-story, three-unit residential building at 2272-2276 82nd Street, in northern Gravesend. The first building, also a three-story, three-unit structure, was initially filed in October, YIMBY reported. Both buildings will measure 4,986 square feet each. Across both, the full-floor apartments should average 1,247 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized units. Brooklyn-based Design Studio Associates is the architect of record. The 60-foot-wide, 6,000-square-foot site’s three-story house was demolished in November.
Related Companies has received approval from the City Planning Commission to develop a multi-tower, 430,000-square-foot mixed-use complex at 511 West 18th Street, in West Chelsea. The project will rise on either side of the High Line on a site located along Tenth Avenue, between West 18th and 19th streets.
