Permits have been filed for a five-story community facility building at 5 New Montrose Avenue, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The development is just three blocks away from the Hewes Street station, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Kushner Studios will be responsible for both development and design.
Today, YIMBY is revealing the latest rendering for 428 Wythe Avenue, in Williamsburg. The new six-story design, with over 61,000 square feet of space within, has incorporated a limestone-colored façade. Exterior turquoise will also complement an arcade running the length of the site, along Wythe Avenue.
Two Trees’ plans for the Domino Factory redevelopment have seen several shifts over the years, but progress is already underway across several of the sites comprising the masterplan, which entails thousands of new units across a multitude of towers. Now, the full plans for the actual Domino Factory redevelopment are out, and they have seen substantial revisions as Vishaan Chakrabarti’s PAU, aka, Practice for Architecture and Urbanism, has taken the helm for the project’s design.
The lot at 200 Kent Avenue is now clearing out for a six-story commercial building, for which renderings have also appeared. YIMBY last reported on this site in August of 2016, when two anonymous entities purchased the empty 22,640 square foot land for $33 million. The project has been shrouded in mystery regarding a potential deal with the Trader Joe’s grocery chain for 18,000 square feet of the ground floor and cellar.
The last time we reported on 190 South 1st Street, YIMBY had the opportunity to go on a tour of the construction site. Now, we have images of the nearly-completed 13-story building, and the final look is strikingly close to what’s depicted in the renderings. The brutalist concrete facade is well balanced from the tower portion, all the way down to the community facility space along Driggs Avenue.
