RDG Queens X LLC has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 139 Grove Street, in central Bushwick, four blocks from the J/Z train’s Gates Avenue stop. The building will measure a total 7,695 square feet, which works out to units averaging 960 square feet. Sion Hourizadeh’s Sion Associates is the applicant of record, and the existing two-story, two-unit townhouse was filed for demolition in July.
Foundation work is currently underway at 1700 Broadway, in Ocean Hill, where a six-story, 79-unit mixed-use building is planned, a block from the J/Z train’s stop at Chauncey Street. According to Brownstoner, the building — being developed by SUS and Alembic Community Development — will be 100% affordable, and will feature 4,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Peter Woll is the architect of record, and completion is expected in 2016.
William Wiegand, of O’Brien and Sons, has filed applications for a five-story, 48-unit mixed-use building at the vacant lot at 244 East 198th Street, in Bedford Park, five blocks from the B/D train’s Kingsbridge Road stop. The building will measure 44,285 square feet, and include an 11,925 square-foot commercial portion on the ground floor; residential units will average a rental-sized 675 square feet each. Mount Vernon-based Mastrogicomo Engineering is the applicant of record.
Restoration Hardware is planning to convert the five-story, 25,000 square-foot building at 55 Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, into a 14-key boutique hotel. According to Crain’s, the ground floor of the building will feature a restaurant. Delshah Capital owns the five-story building, but Restoration Hardware — whose flagship store is located around the corner of 9th Avenue — has leased the entire property.
Earlier this year, Brownstoner caught the first glimpse of the boutique condo development at 170-174 West Street in Greenpoint. Now YIMBY has renderings for the six-story project designed by StudiosC Architects, who are headquartered a few blocks away on Greenpoint Avenue.
