It was only back in October that YIMBY reported on 53 West 53rd Street’s surpassing its 50th floor. Now, the supertall residential tower designed by Jean Nouvel is just about to top-out, with an estimate that formwork should be complete by early March, as the last concrete is poured above the 1,000-foot mark for the iconic skyscraper.
The redevelopment of the riverside commercial site at 2505 Bruckner Boulevard, Schuylerville, has long been a mystery. Our last reporting on the project was back in 2015, when Extell acquired the 20 acres of land. The property has since passed along to Innovo Property Group and Square Mile Capital Management LLC, who will be building a massive, two-story, 840,000 square feet commercial distribution center. With two different levels of loading and unloading, it will be the first of its kind for the city, allowing for speedier and faster service on site.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 3208 Glenwood Road in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Flatbush Avenue Subway Station, the final stop for the 2 and 5 trains. Candor Capital will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building with a penthouse at 289 Kosciuszko Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is ten blocks from the Bedford-Nostrand Avenue Station, serviced by the G train, and fourteen blocks away from the Myrtle Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. The development would fill a vacant lot that’s been in such a condition for over a decade. Premier Equities will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for two three-story structures at 510 and 512 New Lots Avenue, in East New York, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Van Siclen Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 3 and 4 trains. Previous construction remains unfinished on the site from 2004, with the project remaining derelict for over a decade. Sambrial Realty of New York, the owner listed on both permits, will be responsible for the development.
