Ground was broken at 2865 Creston Avenue yesterday to mark the beginning of construction on Bedford Green House, a 13-story supportive and affordable housing project in The Bronx’s Bedford Park neighborhood. The development is expected to cost $58.8 million, with almost half financed by the New York City Housing Development Corporation, HDC, under their Extremely Low- and Low-Income Affordability (ELLA) program.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a ten-story mixed-use building at 651 Fourth Avenue, in South Slope, Brooklyn. The site is four blocks away from the Prospect Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the D, N, R, and W trains. Across the street from the lot is the Al-Noor School, a private K-12 school of Islamic affiliations, serving 650 enrolled students. Greenwood Cemetery is also nearby, and Prospect Park is about a mile away.
Permits have been filed for three mixed-use buildings at 909, 911, and 913 Pierce Avenue, in The Bronx’s Morris Park neighborhood. The lot is currently being used for parking. The location is a mile’s walk from the Bronx Park East Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Bronx-based Parubi Enterprises will be responsible for the development.
While Jersey City’s ongoing real estate boom has been substantial and transformative, almost the entirety of the action has been devoted to the creation of new residential space, including towers like 99 Hudson Street. But a few blocks north, the city’s first new commercial office building in decades, dubbed Harborside Tower, is getting ready to rise at 136 Greene Street, and renderings have now been released.
YIMBY reported on the permits for 5 New Montrose Avenue earlier this month. Now, Kushner Studios has provided us renderings for their design of the new synagogue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The project will yield 9,500 square feet dedicated to the community facility. The building will be 55 feet tall, replacing an abandoned single-story structure.
