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.
25 Kent Avenue in North Williamsburg, Brooklyn is designed by Hollwich Kushner with Gensler as the design development architect. The eight-story building features a distinctive stepped massing and spans an entire city block, yielding half a million square feet of office space with 15-foot ceilings. The project is developed by Rubenstein Partners and Heritage Equity Partners, who are continuing to fill the property and aim for full occupancy by the middle of 2021. 25 Kent Avenue is the first commercial office building to be constructed in the area in more than 40 years.
Exterior work is moving along on 329 Broadway, a 17-story mixed-use building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Syndicate Architecture and developed by Parkview Management, the 195-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure spans 175,000 square feet and will contain 63 units, more than 59,000 square feet of retail area on the first two floors, and around 24,500 square feet of community facilities on the third and fourth floors. JLJ Capital recently provided $57 million in financing for the project.
After five years of development and construction, work on the 1.2-million-square-foot Denizen Bushwick is now complete. The residential campus is designed by ODA New York, which oversaw all aspects of the project including the exteriors, interior planning, and landscape design. All Year Management is the developer responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 1881-1887 McDonald Avenue in Gravesend, Brooklyn. Located at the intersection of Quentin Road and McDonald Avenue, the corner lot is one block south of the Avenue P subway station, serviced by the F train. Abe Betesh of the Abeco Organization is listed as the owner behind the applications. Abeco Construction will be the general contractor on the job.
