Property owner Carol Katzburg has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 1225 42nd Street, in northern Borough Park, three blocks from the D train’s stop at Fort Hamilton Parkway. The structure will measure 8,796 square feet in total, and that figure includes 2,297 square feet of community facility space on the ground floor. The full-floor residential units above will average a family-sized 2,166 square feet apiece. Queens-based Grigori Zinkevitch is the architect of record, and an existing 2.5-story house must first be demolished.
Back in September, renderings surfaced of a Morris Adjmi-designed eight-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 258-260 Bowery, in Nolita, and now Premier Equities has acquired the development site for $10 million, according to Commercial Observer, in a deal brokered by RKF. The planned development will total 23,500 square feet, and retail space, totaling 6,610 square feet, will span the cellar through second floors. The upper floors will house condominiums. Residential square footage hasn’t been announced or filed. So, unit sizes aren’t yet available. Demolition began over the summer on the site’s former three-story building.
10 Hudson Yards won’t end up being the tallest tower at the far West Side development, but it will be the first to open. An event was held to celebrate its topping out back in October, but that was a ceremonial concrete pour. Now, the 895-foot-tall office tower has actually reached its parapet. Thanks to YIMBY readers, we have a time-lapse to show you.

With the residential units spread across 230,000 square feet, that means units averaging about 920 square feet. Aufgang Architects is the designer.
