Douglaston Development is moving forward with a townhouse project in Fort Greene, at 370-374 Clermont Avenue and 71 Greene Avenue. Originally filed in 2013, on the Clermont side, there will be two buildings, with three condominium units. One will be a four-story, single-family home, and the other will reach three stories and hold two units, averaging 3,885 square feet.
Early in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 17-story, 50-unit mixed-use building at 232 Seventh Avenue, in eastern Chelsea, and now YIMBY can report excavation has commenced at the site. The building will measure 42,325 square feet, which includes 2,425 square feet of retail on the ground floor, and C3D Architecture is designing. Chelsea 7 JV LLC is the developer, and the project’s completion is most likely towards the end of 2016 or early 2017.
UPDATE: A tipster sends word that while Ismael Leyva is the architect of record, Robert A.M. Stern is the design architect.
Last September, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new 13-story building coming to 70 Vestry Street, in Tribeca, right next to the West Side Highway. Since then, the site’s two existing structures have been torn down, and we can now reveal the first rendering for the project, which is being designed by Ismael Leyva Architects.
It’s been over a year since we last checked in at 261 Hudson Street, the 12-story rental building on the rise in the western corner of Soho known as Hudson Square. The structure has reached three stories, and we have some new construction photos thanks to YIMBY reader Tectonic.
Developers flocked to Ocean Avenue in Brooklyn during the years following World War I, and after decades of decline, builders have finally returned to the broad, tree-lined thoroughfare. The latest new building planned there is 1704 Ocean Avenue, a seven-story residential development between Avenue L and Avenue M in Midwood.
