For two years, Cornell Realty has been trying to develop two former commercial laundry facilities in southern Crown Heights into residential towers with more than 500 apartments. Now the firm’s plan to rezone those properties is inching through the public review process, and YIMBY has a glimpse of what the project will look like, thanks to documents filed with the Department of City Planning.
A seven-story development is slated to rise at 37-21 32nd Street in Dutch Kills, in northeast Long Island City. The mixed-use project is one of several that are rapidly transforming the former industrial neighborhood. The 105,394-square-foot structure would occupy almost the entirety of the through-block lot, which stretches northwest-southeast between 32nd and 33rd streets.
Non-profit affordable housing developer Phipps Houses has filed applications for a 14-story, 403-unit mixed-use tower at 250 Euclid Avenue, a.k.a. 3301 Atlantic Avenue, in the Cypress Hills section of East New York. The project will encompass 415,476 square feet and rise 143 feet to its roof. There will be 20,977 square feet of ground-floor retail, followed by residential units across floors two through 14, The Real Deal first reported. The apartments should average 936 square feet apiece and will all be designated as affordable.
Isaac Chetrit’s AB & Sons is preparing to formally propose rezoning the property at 56-10 Decatur Street, in Ridgewood, from its current manufacturing zoning (M1-4D) to a residential zone that allows for apartments. The developer plans to file applications with the Department of City Planning in the next few months, The Real Deal reported.
