In July, YIMBY unveiled renderings of WeWork’s planned office building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Now developer Boston Properties has filed new building applications for the project, named Dock 72, at 63 Flushing Avenue.
Aviram Chen, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 19 Malta Street, in East New York’s western neighborhood of New Lots. Located five blocks from the L train’s stop at New Lots Avenue, the structure will measure 4,222 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 704 square feet apiece. An existing garage structure will have to be demolished, but the lot is otherwise empty. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record.
Property owner Alan Richer, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, eight-unit residential building at 27-21 27th Street, in Astoria, three blocks from the 30th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains. It will measure 5,726 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 716 square feet apiece. Some will be duplexes, according to the Schedule A. Astoria-based Christopher Papa is the architect of record, and an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
A former church (that was several things before that) is slated for a massive makeover and conversion, and we know what it will look like, thanks to the above photo. 599 Willoughby Avenue (a.k.a. 599-601 Willoughby Avenue) in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, formerly home to the Hebron Baptist Church, is set to become 16 residential units (though the math in the filing is a tad confusing).
Bjarke Ingels’ dramatic, tetrahedron-shaped rental building is already making its mark on the far west side, and we have some fresh renderings to go along with a new teaser site for the project at 625 West 57th Street, known as VIA 57 West.
