The redevelopment of the Dime Savings Bank in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, will result in one of the neighborhood’s tallest buildings, and today YIMBY has fresh renderings for the project, designed by Fogarty Finger Architects. Yesterday, The Real Deal reported that Charney Construction & Development and Tavros Capital Partners have acquired a $150 million loan to fund construction and renovation work on the historic bank and new 22-story tower. The developers purchased the site in March of 2016 for $80 million.
The pace of progress at 111 Murray Street has been quite rapid since it started to rise into the Tribeca and Lower Manhattan skylines just over a year ago. Now, the construction crane is finally coming down, and the reflective exterior glass façade is beginning to accentuate the sweeping curves of the building’s distinct crown, which covers the mechanical roof and parapet.
Earlier this week we reported on demolition filings to make way for construction of the new Irish Arts Center. The permits were to clear away most of 726 11th Avenue to expand the center’s footing in Hell’s Kitchen. Now, YIMBY has the reveal for new renderings of how the IAC will look from 11th Avenue, with an apparent 40% decrease in square footage.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a nine-story residential building at 514 Herkimer Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is right next to the large, eight-story Interfaith Medical Center complex. The Kingston-Throop Avenue Subway Station is four blocks away, serviced by the A and C trains.
Permits have been filed for two residential buildings at 3588 and 3592 Greystone Avenue, in The Bronx’s Fieldston neighborhood. The site is located on the top of a steep slope, with no large buildings prohibiting views of the Kingsbridge neighborhood and Van Cortlandt Park below. The 238th Street Station is eight blocks away, serviced by the 1 train. Key Construction will be responsible for development.
