Applications have surfaced for Patoma Partners’ three-story, eight-unit mixed-use development at 52-56 Marcy Avenue and 357 Grand Street, in northern Williamsburg, four blocks from the G train’s stop at Metropolitan Avenue. The development is being divided into four equal buildings, but combined they will measure 15,020 square feet. On the ground floor, commercial-retail space will span 5,484 square feet in total, and full-floor units will average a condo-sized 1,192 square feet each. Brooklyn-based KMP Design & Engineering is the architect of record.
Last month, YIMBY brought you the first look at Robert A.M. Stern’s design for One Wall Street, a 50-story office tower that’s set to become a mix of condos and rentals. Now Macklowe Properties has filed alteration applications to transform the building into 524 apartments.
Mar Mar Realty is placing their 37,000 square-foot bowling ally at 30-05 Whitestone Expressway, in Flushing, on the market as a development site for $60 million, according to Commercial Observer. The site measures 80,000 square feet and is currently zoned for manufacturing, but the owner is seeking a rezoning of the property to allow for a 386,000 square-foot mixed-use development, with commercial and residential uses. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the property, and the rezoning could possibly take a year to secure.
In the summer of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Century Development Group’s six-story, 24-unit residential project at 11-30 45th Road, in Long Island City, and last week, The Court Square Blog spotted excavation equipment on-site, indicating work is imminent. The building will measure 22,356 square feet, which works out to condo units averaging 931.5 square feet. A penthouse level for tenants’ recreational use is also planned, and Flushing-based Raymond Chan is designing. Completion is likely slated for 2016.
BrooklynBoss Properties is planning to convert and possibly expand the two-story, 11,500 square-foot building at 661 Driggs Avenue, in northwest Williamsburg, into commercial-retail space. Several restaurant and retail tenants have come forward, including Shake Shack, although a tenant(s) has not been decided on. The building can be expanded by 4,000 square feet, which could be in the form of residential units, depending on the tenant. The owner acquired the property for $5.7 million this past summer.
