Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use building at 639 Degraw Street, in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Located between 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue, the corner lot is two blocks north of the Union Street subway station, serviced by the R train. Gordon Gemma under the 167-174 4th Ave LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction on Quay Tower is wrapping up as the 30-story residential building nears completion. Located across from Pier 6 along the Brooklyn Heights waterfront, it sits next to the southern tip of Brooklyn Bridge Park. Designed by ODA Architecture and developed by RAL Companies and Oliver’s Realty Group, the 315-foot tall skyscraper will bring 126 units to market with the help of Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
New renderings of 531-539 Sixth Avenue show changes to the facade of the residential development, designed by ODA. Compared to renderings released in July 2018, the structure’s facade will now incorporate black and grey metal elements.
When YIMBY last visited the site of ODA‘s planned tree-topped skyscraper at 75 Nassau Street, the remaining buildings were still being demolished. Now, the lots for the 40-story tower are completely empty and cleaned up. Five buildings had to be razed to make way for the future 498-foot tall, 312,000 square foot structure, which promises to make a unique imprint on the Lower Manhattan skyline. Lexin Capital is the developer of the project, which appears to be stalled at the moment, with no progress since demolition currently visible.
Today YIMBY has an update on progress, or lack thereof, for 303 East 44th Street, situated along East 44th Street between First and Second Avenues in Midtown East, which is tentatively set to stand 600 feet to its rooftop. The tower is being designed by ODA Architects and developed by Triangle Assets, with 44 condominiums spanning between 1,000 to 2,000 square feet apiece. Renderings were revealed nearly three years ago in 2015, however, since then, there has been no clear progress. The site is still home to two small red buildings, one of which is four stories tall, and the other standing three stories. It is unclear when they will come down, but it is most certain that they are still standing.
