Property owner Santino Battiata has filed applications for a four-story, 18-unit mixed-use building at 132 Wyckoff Avenue, in northern Bushwick, located on the corner of Stanhope Street and right above the DeKalb Avenue Station on the L train. The 38,723-square-foot project will replace two two-story buildings at 132-134 Wyckoff and the vacant lot at 130 Wyckoff. There will be 5,272 and 588 square feet of ground-floor retail and medical office space, respectively. Beginning on the floor above, residential units will average a relatively spacious 959 square feet apiece, and the new building will be topped by rooftop recreational space. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record.
Back in August of 2015, developers broke ground on the two-building, 30-unit condominium development planned at 465 Pacific Street (a.k.a. 472 Atlantic Avenue), in Boerum Hill. Brownstoner now reports the southern seven-story portion, located on Pacific Street, has topped out, and the six-story portion, being built on Atlantic Avenue, is three stories above street level. The entire project will encompass 84,767 square feet, and the northern building will include 6,982 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The condos will come in one- to five-bedroom configurations and 14 of them will feature private outdoor space. Amenities include a lounge, a children’s playroom, a gym, a 1,300-square-foot rooftop terrace, and storage space. Aria Development Group and Avery Hall Investments are developing, and Morris Adjmi Architects is designing. Completion is expected in late 2017.
Property owner Moshe Granit has filed applications for a nine-story, 30-key hotel at 38-38 11th Street, in northern Long Island City’s Ravenswood section, located four blocks from the 21st Street – Queensbridge stop on the F train. The new building will measure 15,664 square feet on the 25-foot-wide lot. There will be four or three hotel rooms on each floor, a lobby on the ground floor, and a breakfast area in the cellar. Individual hotel suites will average roughly 440 square feet apiece, which is relatively large. Jamaica-based Manish S. Savani is the architect of record. The 2,152-square-foot plot of land is currently vacant.

Savanna and Hong Kong-based Atom Assets have acquired the nine-story, 36,000 square-foot building at 106 West 56th Street, in Midtown between Sixth and Seventh avenues, for an undisclosed amount. Crain’s reports the developers are planning to build a 26-story, 90,000 square-foot boutique office building. Zoning allows for the project to have up to 75,315 square feet of commercial space, and the building’s office floors will range from 5,000 to 2,000 square feet each. Perkins Eastman will be responsible for the design. The property’s current tenant has a year to vacate from the site, although demolition permits were already filed this past January to raze the building. Completion is tentatively expected in 2019.
