As the de Blasio administration pushes forward with its plan to build 80,000 units of affordable housing, more filings have surfaced for city-owned vacant lots, like this one at 54-15 101st in Corona, not far from Flushing Meadows Park. New building applications have been filed to erect an eight-story senior housing development there, between Lewis and Martense Avenues.

Property owner Alireza Esmaeilzadeh has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit townhouse at 147 Saint Felix Street, in southern Fort Greene, located across the street from Atlantic Terminal and 11 different subway lines. The building will measure 3,364 square feet in total, with one unit occupying the first floor and a second taking up the second and third floors. Think Architecture and Design is the architect of record, and the site’s old three story building was demolished in 1999.
Last April, YIMBY reported foundation work was underway at 267 Rogers Avenue, in western Crown Heights, where Heights Advisors is developing a five-story, 165-unit residential building, and now the structure is three floors above the street level, per Curbed. Units will average a rental-sized 679 square feet. Think Architecture and Design is the architect of record, and completion is slated for later this year.
Late last month, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new residential tower coming to 88 Schermerhorn Street, between Court Street and Boerum Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which is being designed by Think Architecture and Design.
The pricey Oosten condo development has topped out with seven stories at 429 Kent Avenue in South Williamsburg, and workers have begun installing glassy facades on the building’s north side, along South 8th Street.
