Earlier this week, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Now, filings have been submitted on the other side of Calvary and Saint Cyprian’s Church, at 972 Bushwick Avenue, by the same development team.
Permits have been filed for a four-story building at the Rebekah Rehab and Extended Care Center. The site, 1118 Havemeyer Avenue, is on the north-west corner of the half-block owned by the rehabilitation, in the East Bronx. The 6 train is just seven blocks away, at the Castle Hill Avenue Subway station.
Permits have been filed for two addresses, at 540 and 550 Garage Gulf Avenue, in Bloomfield, Staten Island. The area is mainly used by construction companies for storing their larger equipment. Recently the neighborhood has seen a rise in commercial development, including the nearby Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, E-Z Pass department, and the Key Food corporate office, and the new garages are linked to Amazon’s new distribution center in the vicinity.
Back in early 2015, YIMBY revealed the first renderings for L&L Holding Company’s redevelopment of 380 Madison Avenue, on the corner of East 46th Street, which will be renamed 390 Madison Avenue upon re-opening. Over two and a half years later, construction of the reconfiguration has now topped-out at 32 floors.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use affordable housing facility at 1769 Fort George Hill, in Inwood. The structure would be an improvement from the site’s current situation. Residents have complained that the parking on the vacant lot has expanded without permits, and been used for commercial parking and a car wash. South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (SoBro) will be responsible for the development.
