Last summer, YIMBY reported on new building applications for the vacant lots at 73-79 Bond Street, in Boerum Hill, where Adam America Real Estate is planning five single-family townhouses. Now, renderings of the project have been revealed by The New York Times. The townhouses will average 4,100 square feet over six floors, which include two below grade and four above grade levels. Ben Hansen is designing, and completion is expected by the end of 2016.
Crown Heights has some of the fastest rising rents in all of Brooklyn. It’s gentrifying at a rate that merited two New York Times real estate section features in the last year, neither of which could resist mentioning riots that occurred 24 years ago. At the same time, new development is sweeping across the area, concentrated at the western edge between Washington and Nostrand Avenues.
Stellar Management is seeking city approval to add 14,000 square feet of ground-floor retail to the base of their 30-story, 200-unit residential building at 70 West 93rd Street, on the Upper West Side, according to DNAinfo. The expansion would include five retail units and a reconfigured lobby. The area around the building is currently a concrete plaza, and approval from City Planning is required. Richard Metsky is one of the designers.
Steven Goldschmied, of GPS Capital, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 378 Harman Street, in northern Bushwick, two blocks from the Knickerbocker Avenue stop on the M train. The building will measure 5,410 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 675 square feet. Julien Flander is the applicant of record, and the lot is currently vacant.
Queen’s-based B&H Contracting Group has filed applications for a seven-story, seven-unit residential building spanning the vacant through-block lot at 1701 Anthony Avenue, in Claremont, just below the Cross-Bronx Expressway. The building will measure 8,466 square feet and will boast surprisingly large apartments, averaging 1,210 square feet each. Percy Griffin’s Griffin Architect & Planner is the applicant of record.
