Renderings have come out depicting the removal of a single-story garage at 82 John Street, in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to be replaced with a five-story building. Permits have not been filed, so details about the project are not yet final, and the plans will go through the LPC later today.
Downtown Brooklyn’s 15 Lafayette Avenue has risen to its full height, with façade installation now complete. Photographs by Tectonic reveal that the structure now stands its full 12 stories, and the exterior has been fully installed. The 138-foot tall building was designed by Dattner Architects, and interiors are not yet finished.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 700 Manida Street, in Hunts Point, The Bronx. Hunts Point is a relatively secluded peninsula within the Bronx, with a population just over 27,000. The closest subway station is the 6 train stop on Bruckner Boulevard, with the furthest end of the peninsula being a 45-minute walk away. MHANY Management is developing the project.
Two Trees’ plans for the Domino Factory redevelopment have seen several shifts over the years, but progress is already underway across several of the sites comprising the masterplan, which entails thousands of new units across a multitude of towers. Now, the full plans for the actual Domino Factory redevelopment are out, and they have seen substantial revisions as Vishaan Chakrabarti’s PAU, aka, Practice for Architecture and Urbanism, has taken the helm for the project’s design.
The lot at 200 Kent Avenue is now clearing out for a six-story commercial building, for which renderings have also appeared. YIMBY last reported on this site in August of 2016, when two anonymous entities purchased the empty 22,640 square foot land for $33 million. The project has been shrouded in mystery regarding a potential deal with the Trader Joe’s grocery chain for 18,000 square feet of the ground floor and cellar.
