Earlier this week, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Now, filings have been submitted on the other side of Calvary and Saint Cyprian’s Church, at 972 Bushwick Avenue, by the same development team.
Permits have been filed for a new seven-story condominium building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The project would replace a three-story residential structure. The site is four blocks away from the Gates Avenue subway station on Broadway, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Plenty of restaurants and shops dominate the vicinity, including a grocery store.
Back in May of 2015, YIMBY first reported on plans for a new residential development at 1127 Willoughby Avenue, between Knickerbocker and Wilson avenues, in Bushwick. While that information was accompanied by architect drawings, we now have the first actual renderings for the site, where construction has now begun.
When it comes to new development in Bushwick, most projects are only a few floors in height. But here and there, more appropriately-sized infill manages to find its way into existence, including at 301 Himrod Street. YIMBY first reported on the site back in September of 2015 when applications were first filed with the DOB, and today, we have the first rendering.
Small-scale infill predominates in the blocks that surround the Rheingold Brewery redevelopment in Bushwick, which is why the project’s rise is so transformational for the neighborhood. Today, YIMBY has aerials thanks to ODA Architecture and photographer Pavel Bendov, covering the two buildings rising at 10 Monteith and 123 Melrose Streets.
