Building applications have been filed for a new development at 1480 New York Avenue, in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, and today YIMBY can reveal what the project will look like, with plans designed by Summer Alhamash of Heritage Architecture. The seven-story structure will contain a mix of community facility and residential space.
New Rochelle has seen several new high-rises announced over the past few weeks, but in between the new towers, infill development continues to improve the burgeoning edge city. Yesterday, The Printhouse, at 165 Huguenot Street, broke ground. The building will have 71 rental units, seven of which will be designated as affordable, and will rise six floors. Megalith Capital is developing alongside East & Hudson, while Magnusson Architecture and Planning is designing. The full rundown is available in the latest from the city’s Mayor’s Office.
Glacier Global Partners’ renovation and refurbishment of the 230,000 square-foot warehouse at 10 Jay Street is making major progress, per the latest photos from Tectonic. The 10-story building is receiving a glassy new facade designed by ODA New York, which was first revealed in a video posted by Curbed back in February of 2015. The crystalline exterior is up to the eighth floor of the structure, and completion is likely within the next year or so.
A two-story house at 103-43 120th Street, in South Ozone Park, Queens, is about to bite the dust. Building applications have been filed for its imminent replacement, which will rise five floors, and span 8,580 square feet. Mang Wong of Pondosa, Inc. is designing the structure, which will have ten units in total, averaging 858 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Gorden Tan of 4918 Property LLC is listed as the developer, and demolition permits for the extant house have not yet been pulled.
The Naftali Group has been working on several substantial new developments over the past few years, and two of the more prominent buildings are almost across the street from each other, at 210 West 77th Street, and at 221 West 77th Street, in the heart of the Upper West Side. YIMBY caught up with Miki Naftali at 210 West 77th Street to discuss how the firm’s other projects are coming along, how they managed to acquire two development sites that avoid the red tape that chokes so much of the Upper West Side, and the state of the market in general.
