The Jehovah’s Witnesses has selected a buyer for its four-story recreational building at 69 Adams Street, located on the corner of Front Street in DUMBO. Neither the buyer nor the price of the sale have been disclosed, but it’s expected to close before 2017, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported. The 17,490-square-foot site can accommodate up to 157,410 square feet of mixed-use development, in the form of residential, commercial, and/or community facility space. Plans for the site have not been disclosed.
Construction is underway on the top floor of the eight-story, seven-unit mixed-use redevelopment project at 210 Bowery, in Nolita. The site’s existing four-story commercial building is receiving four more floors, or an additional 6,600 square feet of space, as seen in an update by Bowery Boogie.
An anonymous Bronx-based LLC has filed applications to redevelop the severely dilapidated three-story commercial structure at 15-20 Central Avenue, in Far Rockaway, into a five-story school building. The redevelopment will incorporate the stand-alone four-story structure that exists behind the three-story building. The project will encompass 75,440 square feet and will rise 62 feet above street level. The school, which will likely be private, will have a gymnasium, cafeteria, administrative offices, classrooms, and conference rooms. William Leung’s Financial District-based architecture firm is the architect of record.
Brooklyn-based Lany Vays has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 21-22 45th Road, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. The project will measure 4,883 square feet and its residential units should average 814 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. The building will be joined by at least four other similarly sized buildings, at 21-20 – 21-28 45th Road and 21-19 46th Avenue, which YIMBY reported on back in September. Igor Zaslavskiy’s Brooklyn-based Zproekt is the architect of record. The 15,000-square-foot site is occupied by multiple single-story warehouses. Demolition permits were filed over the summer.
