Since YIMBY’s previous update in May, the 28-story, 150-unit mixed-use tower under development at 436 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn, has topped out and begun façade installation. The latest photo of the project was posted to the YIMBY Forums by construction photographer Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the structure measures 155,100 square feet and stands 310 feet above street level. There will be 23,740 square feet of retail space across the cellar through third floors. The residential units above should average 793 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Yoel Schwimmer is the developer and ODA New York is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
When we last checked in on the ODA New York-designed mixed-use development at 436 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn, it was about three stories above ground. Now, it’s about three months later and, thanks to photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, we can see the project has risen to about 20 stories above ground, on its way to a final height of 28 stories.
In November of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 28-story, 150-unit mixed-use building at 436 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn, located only a few blocks from stops on roughly a dozen subway lines. The Department of Buildings granted permits in March 2015, and since then the building has risen three stories above street level, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The latest filings have the project measuring 155,100 square feet in total and including 23,740 square feet of commercial-retail space on the cellar through third floors. The residential units will begin on the fourth floor and should average 793 square feet apiece. ODA New York is designing and Yoel Schwimer is the developer. Completion in 2017 seems probable.
