The Brooklyn-based Kagan Family Irrevocable Trust has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 176 Webster Avenue in southern Kensington. The project will measure 7,161 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 1,862 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The unit on the second floor will also include space on an upper penthouse level. Kenneth Thomas’s Hudson Valley-based firm is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,479-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits have not been filed. The 18th Avenue stop on the F train is two blocks away.
Brookland Capital is taking over central Brooklyn, where the firm has developments going up from Bedford-Stuyvesant to East Flatbush. Today YIMBY has a look at the company’s new building planned for 15 East 19th Street, on a dead-end block just south of Church Avenue.
Late last month, YIMBY reported that piling work was underway at the site of HFZ Capital Group’s two-towered, 35- and 25-story, mixed-use project at 76 11th Avenue in southern Chelsea. The developer had been considering whether to construct a hotel or office space within the project’s commercial component; now it has been revealed that a five-star, 137-key Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is planned. The hotel portion will be located in the 25-story eastern tower and will feature a spa. It will be the Bangkok-based hotel operator’s first location in the United States.
Renderings have been revealed of the new 26,000-square-foot Statue of Liberty Museum to be located on Liberty Island in New York Harbor. The structure is designed by FXFOWLE Architects. As reported over the summer, ESI Design will be responsible for the interior spaces. The museum will include a gallery, a theater, a bookstore, and administrative offices. It will also sport a walk-up rooftop terrace accessible from the pedestrian plaza.
Brooklyn-based Southside Units has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 99 North 4th Street in North Williamsburg, three blocks from the East River. The project will measure 6,500 square feet and its residential units should average 813 square feet apiece. The structure will stand at 70 feet high but look like a seven-story building, thanks to three mezzanine levels that will contain additional residential space. Diego B. Aguilera’s Rego Park-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 24-foot-wide, 2,408-square-foot site is currently occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.
