Yesterday, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 3 East 3rd Street, located on the western end of the East Village. Real Estate Weekly managed to get their hands on a rendering of the project, which is to be developed by Brooklyn-based Barrett Design. Alex Barrett, the firm’s architect, is designing the project in-house. The project will include a 3,135-square-foot retail condo spanning three levels, including the ground floor. Above that, there will be four full-floor condominiums and a duplex penthouse. The developer has secured $6.9 million in financing for the acquisition of the site. A three-story commercial building must first be demolished.
On March 8, the East New York Savings Bank, Parkway Branch, in East New York, Brooklyn was designated the first city landmark of 2016. That same day, the former Empire State Dairy Company complex, also in East New York, was added to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s calendar. On Tuesday, the designation process continued.
New York City’s hospitals are struggling. St. Vincent’s Hospital in the West Village shut its doors in 2010 and sold most of its property to condo developers. Beth Israel Hospital is planning to close and sell off some of its buildings in the East Village, eventually demolishing the 825-bed hospital and developing a newer, smaller facility.
Brooklyn-based Moshe Friedman has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 127-129 Troutman Street, in western Bushwick. They will measure 6,052 square feet and 5,895 square feet, respectively. Across both, the residential units should average 677 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be bike storage in the cellars. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based Beam Group is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot assemblage is consists of a vacant lot and a recessed two-story house. Demolition permits haven’t been filed to remove the latter. The Central Avenue stop on the M train is five blocks away.
Last year, Related Companies chairman Stephen Ross promised New York Times reporter Charles Bagli that the firm would install an iconic sculpture at Hudson Yards that would rival the Eiffel Tower.
