Permits have been filed for a 15-story residential building at 1579 Bedford Avenue, also known as the Bedford Union Armory, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Franklin Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains. Prospect Park is located just five blocks away. The development will create housing and a recreational center made affordable for community residents. Also included will be low-cost space for local non-profits, and a new medical facility for uninsured citizens of the city. The NYC Economic Development Corporation is behind the applications.

With each new day that passes, the view of Midtown from southern Central Park is looking more like the renderings from several years ago. Today, we have a look at 111 West 57th Street, which is on its way to becoming the third-tallest skyscraper in New York City, surpassed only by One World Trade Center and Central Park Tower. It’s been three and a half months since YIMBY last reported on the soon-to-be supertall’s progress from Midtown. In that time, the tower has seen an incredible growth spurt, and is now officially over halfway to its eventual 1,428-foot peak.
