Brooklyn-based Joe Waldman has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit residential building at 2734 Snyder Avenue, in northern Flatbush, two blocks south of the Church Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure 6,107 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 679 square feet apiece. Genaro Urueta’s Maspeth-based firm is the applicant of record, and an existing single-story house must first be demolished.
Salvatore D’Avola, director of Neighborhood Restore HDFC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 1262 Bushwick Avenue, in southern Bushwick, located a block from the Halsey Street stop on the J train. The structure will measure 3,432 square feet, and the residential units will be duplexes, with one spanning the ground and second floors and the other taking floors three and four. Suzanna Tharian’s Greenwich Village-based Stat Architecture is the applicant of record, and the site’s old three-story townhouse was demolished in the 2000s.
Earlier this month, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the 11-story, 30-unit condominium project at 155 West 18th Street, in southern Chelsea, and now Curbed has the first full rendering of the project, as well as news that it has been dubbed The Flynn. As previously reported, the building is now topped-out and receiving its cladding. Completion is expected in mid-2016, and the sales launch is planned for this December. IGI-USA is the developer, and ODA-Architecture is designing.
In the middle of 2014, Macklowe Properties closed on an assemblage on the corner of 59th Street and Third Avenue for $100 million, acquiring it from SL Green. Now, with the former structures demolished, YIMBY can reveal the first renderings of the site’s future occupant, designed by CetraRuddy, which will stand 35 stories and 490 feet tall.
A plan to remake the south side of Gansevoort Street between Greenwich and Washington Streets got a big thumbs down from the public at a Landmarks Preservation Commission hearing on Tuesday. The plan from William Gottlieb Real Estate and Aurora Capital would bring more commercial and retail space to the block and would do so by demolishing two buildings and replacing them with new ones and modifying several others.
