Slate Property Group, Adam America and Naveh Shuster Limited are carving a path through the Broadway Triangle in Williamsburg, beginning with plans for a 96-unit building at 120 Union Avenue a year ago. Now they’ve filed new building applications for another residential development down the street at 100 Union Avenue, on the corner of Middleton Street.
Earlier this year, the LPC approved the conversion of a five-story commercial structure into a six-story, three-unit residential building at 41 Great Jones Street, in NoHo. Now Community Board 2 has approved the building for residential use, according to Real Estate Weekly. The units will be condominiums — two duplexes and a triplex — spanning a total of 13,333 square feet. The exterior will also be restored, and construction is slated to begin this November. Blumenfeld Development Group is developing, while Morris Adjmi Architects is designing.
YIMBY noted in January of this year that the Durst Organization’s 32-story, 709-unit mixed-use building at 625 West 57th Street was nearly topped out, and now the project is structurally complete and receiving its final curtain wall, per DesignBoom. The building, which has a pinnacle 467 feet above street level, was designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, and has been dubbed Via. Completion is expected in the coming months, and YIMBY has chronicled the project’s construction since the start, with updates as far back as August 2013.
YIMBY has noticed all kinds of interesting conversions in the industrial area between Morgan Avenue and Jefferson Avenue in Buswhick, where restrictive zoning and rising rents have led landlords to consider transforming old warehouses into night clubs and artist studios. But today we spotted unusual plans for a theater conversion at 383 Troutman Street, in the part of the neighborhood defined by its colorful street art and a growing stretch of bars and restaurants.
Newburg, N.Y.-based Issac Laufer has filed applications for a seven-story, single-family residence at 200 Parkville Avenue, in southern Kensington, ninety feet in from Ocean Parkway. The building will measure an enormous 9,980 square feet, standing 80 feet to the roof, and will feature five parking spaces for automobiles in the cellar. Charles Mallea’s Williamsburg-based M Architecture is the architect of record, and a two-story house must first be demolished.
