Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 96 Tompkins Avenue in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Located between Stockton Street and Myrtle Avenue, the lot is one block east of the Myrtle-Willoughby Avenues subway station, serviced by the G train. Joel Leifer under the Farragut Associates LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction on Davis Brody Bond‘s 21-story tech hub at 124 East 14th Street is now two stories above street level in Union Square. The Union Square Tech Training Center will eventually yield 254,000 square feet and include a mix of affordable and market-rate office space for tech companies, retail, and dining facilities managed by Urbanspace. Private entities RAL Development and Suffolk Construction are also part of the development team.
Construction is nearing completion on 127 Leroy Street, a nine-story residential building in the West Village. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Shibumi Development, the 124-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure topped out in early 2018 and the glass and stone curtain wall is now substantially complete, with only small portions on the top floors left to be enclosed. The site is bounded by Leroy Street, Washington Street, and Greenwich Street, and was formerly occupied by a one-story warehouse for Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, which has since moved to North Bergen, New Jersey.
CW Realty Management has filed proposals with the Department of Buildings to construct a residential property at 508 Graham Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. If approved, the structure will comprise 24,500 square feet. Area specifically dedicated to residential use would measure 20,264 square feet divided among 30 rental units, for an average scope of 675 square feet apiece.
Plans for 350 Park Avenue were revealed last year but we won’t see the supertall complete until 2027 at the earliest. In a 2019 fourth quarter earnings call last week for Vornado Realty Trust, the company confirmed that ongoing leases would conclude by end of 2023, which is the earliest it could begin to take down the current building and build the almost 1,500-foot-tall office skyscraper.
