Brooklyn-based developer Brooklyn Boss has filed applications for a five-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 72 South 2nd Street, located on the corner of Wythe Avenue, in western Williamsburg. The project will measure 13,720 square feet. It will host 3,750 square feet of medical offices on the ground floor, followed by residential units above. The apartments should average 1,160 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Haworth, N.J.-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 3,750-square-foot assemblage is occupied by three- and two-story structures. The new building will be built around the three-story structure on the corner. The Bedford Avenue station on the L train is a little more than 10 minutes away.
Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place for Lower East Side megaproject Essex Crossing. Applications have been filed for a 25-story, mixed-use building at 180 Broome Street, between Delancey, Clinton, and Suffolk streets.

The 12-story, 194-unit residential building under construction at 11-39 49th Avenue, located on the corner of 21st Street in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City, is now seven stories above street level, according to The Court Square Blog. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 131,854 square feet. The residential units, averaging 677 square feet apiece, will be rental apartments and twenty percent of them (39 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The Criterion Group is the developer and Aufgang Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in late 2018, according to signage, although it appears work is ahead of schedule.
It was revealed in March that plans for a commercial-retail complex at 90-02 168th Street, in downtown Jamaica, had been abandoned, and that the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation (GJDC) would be releasing an updated request for proposals (RFP) for the site. An updated RFP is now available, DNAinfo reported. The GJDC is seeking a team to build a mixed-use project that would include roughly 75,000 square feet of retail space and at least 250 residential units. Between 10 to 20 percent of the apartments would be set aside for artists. A larger portion, which includes some (or possibly all) of the artists’ units, will be designated as affordable, renting at below-market rates through a lottery. Overall, the vacant, 99,500-square-foot site could accommodate up to 497,500 square feet of mixed-use development. Applications for the RFP are due December 2nd, and the project should be complete by 2019.
