Flushing-based DBMC Equities has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 69 Woodbine Street, in central Bushwick. The structure will measure 6,818 square feet and its residential units should average 685 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include laundry facilities and outdoor terraces on the ground floor and rooftop. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 2,500-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse, although demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Gates Avenue stop on the J and Z trains is two blocks away.
YIMBY revealed preliminary renderings of a planned office building at 420 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn, when the New York City Economic Development Corporation announced the project back in November of 2015. Now, new details are emerging. Dubbed One Willoughby Square, it will measure roughly 500,000 square feet. Kohn Pedersen Fox is responsible for the design, although the final vision is still to be determined, the Wall Street Journal reported. It’s unclear how many floors there will be or how high the building will rise since new building applications have yet to be filed. The developers, JEMB Realty and Forest City Ratner Companies, are currently seeking an anchor tenant. Construction is expected to begin in 2017. The 22,840-square-foot site is currently vacant.
Property owner Chaim Sieger has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential project at 1706 48th Street, in Borough Park. The structure will measure 8,773 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 2,193 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. It will be topped by a roof terrace. Kenneth Thomas’s Nanuet, N.Y.-based company is the applicant of record. The 3,656-square-foot property, located on the corner of Old New Utrecht Road, is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in March. The 18th Avenue stop on the F train is five blocks away.
YIMBY wouldn’t ordinarily cover the design for a restaurant interior, but one coming Financial District eatery is a special case. Last Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a proposal for Japanese Chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa’s new outpost at 195 Broadway.
As residential towers begin to rise around the former Domino Sugar factory in South Williamsburg, a much more modest project is nearing the finish line a few blocks inland, on South 1st Street between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue. Investmates Real Estate is putting the finishing touches on four two-family townhouses as 127-131 South 1st Street, not far from the Williamsburg Bridge or the restaurants and shops along the waterfront.
