Two years ago, the Landmarks Preservation Commission floated the idea of clearing its backlog of items from before 2010 by simply de-calendaring all of them. That was not well-received, to put it lightly. So, they devised a series of steps to actually address those 95 items. That process nearly came to an end today, with the designation of 10 new city landmarks.
Triple Five Group will restart construction early next year on the long-stalled and horrendous-looking American Dream Meadowlands retail and entertainment project, located in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The 3-million-square-foot complex is scheduled to open in late 2018, the Record reported.
Kew Gardens-based Empire Home Sales has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 277 Milford Street, in the heart of East New York. The project will measure 6,810 square feet and its residential units should average 860 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. Paul Lombardi’s Brooklyn-based Design Studio Associates is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,000-square-foot lot is vacant.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, two-family townhouse at 26 Suydam Street, in western Bushwick. The new building will measure just 3,015 square feet. One of the apartments will be located on the ground floor, while the second will spread across the second through fourth floors. Olabanji B. Awosika’s Jamaica-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 18-foot-wide, 1,242-square-foot lot is occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Construction is now nine floors above street level on the 19-story, 183-unit mixed-use building under development at 1 Flatbush Avenue, located on the corner of Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 133,936 square feet and rise 206 feet to its main roof, not including bulkhead elements.
