Yacov Levine has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 1423 45th Street, in the heart of Borough Park. The structure will measure 4,336 square feet, which means its full-floor residential units should average 1,084 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. Peter Gee’s South Slope-based Gee 2000 Architect is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,004-square-foot plot is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not yet been filed. The site is located four blocks from the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop on the D train.
Construction has reached street level at the site of a planned 25-story, 368-unit mixed-use building at 210 Livingston Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. A photo of the progress was posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Under development is a 405,002-square-foot project that will feature nearly 20,000 square feet of retail on the ground and cellar levels. Residential units will begin on the third floor and should average 825 square feet apiece. The apartments will be rentals, and 74 of them will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Amenities include a 130-car underground garage, storage for 184 bikes, “accessory amenity spaces” on the second floor, outdoor terraces on the second and 15th floors, and a lounge on the 15th floor. Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates are the developers, while Handel Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in late 2017.
With the exception to window installation, exterior construction is nearly done on the nine-story, 22-unit mixed-use building under development at 89-14 150th Street, in Downtown Jamaica. A tipster sent along a photo to YIMBY of the construction site. The building measures 30,466 square feet. The cellar level will contain 2,884 square feet of medical offices, while the residential units, beginning on the second floor, should average 1,031 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums, coming in two- and three-bedroom configurations. Amenities include bicycle storage, laundry facilities, a recreational area on the ground floor, an 11-car parking garage on the ground floor, and a terrace on the eighth floor. Kingston Property is the developer, while Maspeth-based Angelo Ng & Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017, although work appears to be ahead of schedule. The project was two stories above street level in September of 2015.
It won’t be the largest new single-building residential project in New York City, but by any measure developer TF Cornerstone’s 606 West 57th Street will be big. Thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user JC_Heights, it can be seen that foundation work is well underway.
The F&T Group recently finished its sprawling, mixed-use development called One Fulton Square in downtown Flushing. Now, the local builder is moving forward with its next big mega-project, Two Fulton Square, which will replace the former Flushing Mall.
