A trio of affordable housing developers have been building the huge, mixed-income Navy Green project next to the Navy Yard for nearly a decade, and now the final piece—23 townhouses—is under construction. A crop of single-family homes is taking shape on Vanderbilt and Clermont Avenues between Flushing and Park Avenues, on the border of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.
The Key Food at 325 Lafayette Avenue in Clinton Hill shut its doors in July, a few months after Slate Property Group filed plans for an eight-story residential building. YIMBY revealed the first rendering of the project in April, and now we have a better look at what will replace the supermarket next to Pratt’s campus.
Brooklyn-based Boaz Gilad has filed applications for a seven-story, 21-unit residential building at 925 Atlantic Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill, located two blocks from the Clinton – Washington Avenues stop on the C train. The building will measure 17,237 square feet in total, and units will average 820 square feet apiece. Upper West Side-based Feingold & Gregory Architects is the applicant of record, and an existing single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
In southern Clinton Hill, a five-story, 10-unit residential building is currently in the works at 538 Washington Avenue, and now renderings have surfaced of the project, per Curbed. The building has been named Aperture 538, and the structure topped out late last year. Sam Boymelgreen is developing. Luca Andrisani is designing, and Tamar Kisilevitz is serving as the architect of record. A few days ago, applications to sub-divide the units were filed with the DOB, meaning that a sales launch is likely happening soon. The Washington Avenue C train stop is located a few steps away.
This past spring, units hit the market at Barrett Design & Development’s conversion of the Broken Angel house at 4 Downing Street, and now the building is nearing completion. Per Brownstoner, the developer is also building a the three-story, two-unit townhouse at 8 Downing Street, and façade and window installation are currently underway. The interiors are still being built out, but completion can be expected in the next few months.
