Thanks to a YIMBY reader, we have a first look at what’s rising at 250 Water Street, a five-story residential building in the Vinegar Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn. The building will rise on a 70-foot wide lot that’s been empty for over a decade. Global Property Group is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a six-story community facility at 2064 Boston Road, in The Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood.

Foundation work appears to be underway on the eight-story, 18-unit mixed-use building under development at 1875 Broadway, located on the corner of DeSales Place in eastern Bushwick. The new building, with 7,019 square feet of community facility space, is part of the ongoing redevelopment of the former Our Lady of Lourdes convent. The project includes the conversion of a four-story structure at 11 DeSales Place and the construction of a six-story structure to the north, which has topped out, featuring an additional 58 residential units and 1,215 square feet of community facility space.
