Brooklyn-based JIH Builders Group has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 847 Madison Street, in northern Ocean Hill, located two blocks from the Gates Avenue stop on the J/Z trains. The structure will measure 6,671 square feet and its residential units should average 694 square feet apiece, which means rental apartments are in the works. There will be two apartments each on the ground through third floors, and a single full-floor apartment on the fourth floor. Rego Park-based Diego Aguilera Architects is the architect of record. A two-story, 25-foot-wide townhouse must first be demolished.
It was in December of 2014 when YIMBY first reported on applications for a 22-townhome development spanning 109-125 King Street and 74-84 Sullivan Street, in Red Hook. We later revealed renderings on two occasions in 2015, and now the project is under construction, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports. Excavation, along with foundation work, is well underway on the townhouses, dubbed King & Sullivan Red Hook Townhomes. The homes will rise three stories above street level and should average a spacious 2,381 square feet apiece. Sanba Partners is the developer, AA Studio is behind the design, and Jeffrey Cole Architects is serving as the architect of record. Completion can be expected later this year or in early 2017.
Back in September of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a 28-story, 236-unit residential building at 1501 Voorhies Avenue, in southern Sheepshead Bay, located directly adjacent to the Sheepshead Bay stop on the B/Q trains. Now, Sheepshead Bites reports foundation work is well underway on what permits say will eventually be a 275,892-square-foot building. The residential units, which will be a mix of condominiums and rental apartments, should average a relatively spacious 1,169 square feet apiece. The tower’s lower portions will host 13,530 square feet of commercial space, and amenities include 124 parking spaces, many located in an underground garage, storage for 118 bikes, a fitness center, a pool and spa, and and common outdoor spaces. AvalonBay and Muss Development are the developers, and Perkins Eastman Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2018.
