After previously enduring a slight pause in construction, the site of the future Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center has picked up the pace of steel assembly currently forming the bottom sub-levels of the 130-foot structure. They will eventually form the secondary entrance and exit to the World Trade Center’s Vehicle Security Center. The project is already above street level and is being developed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), and designed by Joshua Prince-Ramus of Brooklyn-based REX Architecture. A 99-year lease was already approved for the project by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Earlier this month, we covered permits filed for the Faith Chapel Baptist Church at 552 Prospect Place, Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Today, thanks to a YIMBY reader’s tip, we can reveal renderings for the site’s soon-to-be replacement. As one might expect for such a unique building, a portion of the extant structure will be preserved, but not as much as one might expect. Stephan Tchorbajian of Hye Rise Consulting is listed as responsible for the development.
Fresh renderings have revealed the facade and updated layouts of a new condominium development on the rise at 37 Lafayette Avenue, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The structure will climb 10 stories and contain a mix of residential, medical office, and retail space.

The College’s Vice President of Operations Kevin DeGroat is listed as behind the applications.
