Horizon Construction Inc. has filed applications for a six-story, six-unit residential building at 449 Convent Avenue, in Hamilton Heights, five blocks north of the 145th Street stop on the A and C trains. The project will eventually rise on a vacant 18-foot-wide lot and will measure 5,874 square feet in total, boasting units averaging 979 square feet apiece. Parag Mehta’s Midtown South-based PM Architecture is the applicant of record. Back in 2011, the HPD ordered an emergency demolition of the site’s former four-story, 16-unit building.
A seven-story residential building is coming to the heart of East Williamsburg, on Montrose Avenue between Humboldt Street and Avenue of Puerto Rico. New building applications were filed Tuesday for the project at 172 Montrose Avenue, a block and a half from the Montrose Avenue L stop.
Towards the end of last summer, foundation work was underway for a six-story, 79-unit affordable residential building at 1700 Broadway, in Ocean Hill, a block from the Chauncey Street stop on the J and C trains. Now, the structure is five stories above street level, per Brownstoner, and another six-story, 55-unit affordable building by the same developers is four stories up a block to the north, at 1676 Broadway. All units will be rented at well below-market rates and 7,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space is planned. Services for the Underserved and Alembic Community Development are developing, while Peter Woll is the architect. Completion is expected in early 2016.
Back in October of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 134-unit mixed-use building at 2351 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, in Harlem, and then we brought you renderings of a redevelopment proposal that would have saved the dilapidating Harlem Renaissance Ballroom from demolition. Since then, the ballroom has been demolished, and now developer BRP Companies has landed a $53.2 million loan to build the project, according to Commercial Observer. Construction is reportedly underway, with completion expected in 2017.
Midtown-based PS-5 Development has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 356 Baltic Street, in Cobble Hill, four blocks south of the Bergen Street stop on the F and G trains. The project will measure 4,897 square feet in total, which means full-floor units will average 1,224 square feet apiece, indicative of condos. The unit on the fourth floor will also include a fifth-floor penthouse. Anthony Morena’s Midtown-based Arch + Dev Mortar is the architect of record. A single-story garage structure must first be demolished.
