Back in June, YIMBY reported on progress for the Block 675 Redevelopment, just to the southwest of Related’s Hudson Yards supertalls. The site sits on the corner of 30th Street and 11th Avenue, and there, Douglaston Development and Lalezarian Properties want to use air rights transferred from Chelsea Piers via the Special Hudson River Park District to build over 1,200 apartments. Now, we have some fresh renderings, a clearer look at Tower B, and the latest figures for the still-growing proposal, which consists of two towers being designed by FXFOWLE and Ismael Leyva Architects.
Just South of Union Square, on Broadway between East 12th and East 13th Streets, there are two Italianate-inspired buildings from 1866 and 1867, at 827-831 Broadway. Back in 2015, the sites had been purchased for $60 million by the real estate investors Samson Klugman of Quality Capital, and Leo Tsimmer of Caerus Group. They had initially filed permits for a 300-foot-tall commercial space, but that was stopped when the Landmarks Preservation Commission awarded landmark status for the 150-year old construction.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a six-story residential building at 679 Lefferts Avenue, in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The project is ten blocks away from the Kingston Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains, and the area around the site is predominantly residential. Today, YIMBY also has the first renderings of the design, by IMC Architecture.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a four-story residential building at 166 Newel Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The site is not far from the core of retail action in Greenpoint, along Manhattan Avenue. Eight blocks away is the Nassau Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the G trains.
