Early last year, Curbed revealed a glassy rendering for a condo project at 200 South 3rd Street in Williamsburg. Now YIMBY has a rendering for a completely revamped version of the building that will rise between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street.
As Brooklyn’s rising rents pushed further south, Flatbush saw a flood of filings in the first few months of 2015. There’s been a lull, thanks to uncertainty over the future of the 421-a tax abatement, but development seems to be picking up again in the central Brooklyn neighborhood. Plans were filed yesterday to build a seven-story, 24-unit building at 1084 Rogers Avenue, between Cortelyou and Clarendon Roads and a short walk from the Beverly Road 2/5 stop.
Early last year, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the nearly complete 50-story hotel and residential tower at 20 West 53rd Street, in Midtown. Since then, the 59-unit and 114-key Baccarat Hotel & Residences wrapped up construction, and now 80% of the condominiums have sold, with sales topping $300 million. Condo layouts range from 1,167 square feet up to the 7,381 square-foot penthouse. Starwood Capital and Tribeca Associates are the developers, and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is the architect.
Early last year, YIMBY reported on the demolition of the 10-story Bancroft building at 3 West 29th Street, in NoMad, and now the New York Post has revealed what HFZ Capital has planned for the development assemblage. A 64-story, 800-foot-tall mixed-use tower is planned on the 30th Street side, where a 12-story commercial building has yet to be demolished at 8-16 West 30th Street. The neighboring Marble Collegiate Church is also in on the project, and will operate offices in the skyscraper’s limestone-clad base. A small plaza is also rendered on the 29th Street side, immediately adjacent to the church. Moshe Safdie is designing, and the project reportedly requires approval from the LPC.
Gac Haxhari has filed applications for a four-story, 15-unit residential building at 2547 Cruger Avenue, in the North Bronx neighborhood of Allerton, right around the corner from the 2 and 5 trains’ stop at Allerton Avenue. The building will measure 10,932 square feet in total, and units will average 729 square feet apiece. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the architect of record, and an existing 1.5-story home must first be demolished.
