Excavation work is getting started at 22 Chapel Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The ground-up, 20-story rental complex is designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Delshah Capital and OTL Enterprises. The superstructure will rise 211 feet high above Flatbush Avenue and sit between Chapel Street and Cathedral Place. A total of 133,181 square feet of residential space will be created and spread among 180 units.
Construction has topped out on the four-story, eight-unit mixed-use building under development at 325 Henry Street, also known as 112 Atlantic Avenue, located in Cobble Hill. All eight of the project’s condominiums are also sold out, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported. The latest building permits indicate the structure encompasses 25,244 square feet and rises 50 feet to its roof, not including bulkhead elements.
When Robert Moses built the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in the 1950s, he pushed the area between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge approaches even further into isolation, hemming it in on all sides with highways. But OTL Enterprises managed to snag a large and favorably zoned parcel at 22 Chapel Street, just off Flatbush Avenue Extension. Now they’ve filed plans to erect a 20-story, mixed-use building on the lot, which is bounded on the other two sides by Cathedral Place and Jay Street.
Back in December of 2014, YIMBY reported on the Landmarks Preservation Commission approval of the four-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 112 Atlantic Avenue, in northern Cobble Hill (within the Cobble Hill Historic District), after initial plans for the site were rejected the month before. Curbed NY now has a new rendering of the project, which is reportedly now under construction and using the address 325 Henry Street. The latest filings describe a 25,244-square-foot structure with 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The condominium units will begin on the second floor and should average a very spacious 2,169 square feet apiece. There will also be six bike storage spaces and an eight-car automated parking garage in the cellar. BKSK Architects is designing, and Avery Hall Investments and OTL Enterprises are the developers. Completion is probably expected later this year or in 2017.
