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.
Permits have been filed for a new seven-story condominium building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The project would replace a three-story residential structure. The site is four blocks away from the Gates Avenue subway station on Broadway, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Plenty of restaurants and shops dominate the vicinity, including a grocery store.
Permits have been filed for a new three-story building at 19-14 21st Road, in Ditmars-Steinway, Queens. The site is two blocks away from Astoria Park, along the East River. Though the neighborhood is largely residential, this particular location is just a couple blocks away from several stores, a market, and the P.S. 122 Mamie Fay. AKI Development is responsible for the project.
The last time YIMBY checked in on progress at Brookfield’s Manhattan West, a little over a year ago, construction had just reached above ground level. Now, the superstructure for the first tower, at 401 Ninth Avenue, is closing in on the halfway mark, and in the past few days, glass installation has also begun.
The Upper West Side doesn’t often see major new residential developments, especially of the affordable variety, which is why HPD’s plans for 145 West 108th Street, on behalf of the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, are somewhat surprising. Dattner Architects will be designing, and today, YIMBY has the first images of what the two-building project will look like.
