In the final days of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 114-unit mixed-use building at 435 East 13th Street (a.k.a 432-438 East 14th Street), in the East Village, and nearly a year later, crews demolished the site’s old two-story post office building. Now, EV Grieve has the first glimpse of the project, which will encompass 135,186 square feet and two buildings, per the latest filings. Located on both ends of the block-thru parcel, each building will feature 8,700 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The residential units will average 769 square feet apiece and 20 percent of them will rent at below market-rates. Benenson Capital Partners and Mack Real Estate Group are developing, and SLCE Architects is designing the project. Completion is anticipated for early 2017.
Brooklyn-based Isaac Stern, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 1598-1600 Eastern Parkway, in southern Ocean Hill, located nine blocks south of the Rockaway Avenue Station on the A and C trains. Each one will measure 7,620 square feet in total, and they will have a combined total of 12,382 square feet of residential space. That means units will average 774 square feet apiece, although the top two units in each structure will be larger because those will have access to fifth-floor penthouses. Hudson Valley-based Kenneth Thomas is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide lot has been long-vacant.
Just as Long Island City’s residential boom approaches its peak, we’ve come across plans for a 10-story office and retail building at 30-20 Northern Boulevard, next to the elevated subway tracks and Sunnyside Yards.
Two years ago, the city upzoned a big vacant lot at 158-15 Union Turnpike, in the Hillcrest section of eastern Queens. Now a four-story, mixed-use rental building is under construction on the property between Parsons Boulevard and 160th Street, and YIMBY has renderings of the project.
It was back in May of 2014 that YIMBY brought you work of permits being filed for a 60-unit mixed-use development at 153 Remsen Street, between Clinton Street and Court Street in Brooklyn Heights. In July of 2015, we reported that excavation and piling work had begun. Since then the building has reached about four floors, as seen in photos from our friend Tectonic. We also have a better look at the design of the overall structure.
