Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the three-story, 13,040 square-foot building at 217-219 West 21st Street, in Chelsea, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. The property has 6,710 square feet of unused air rights, according to Commercial Observer, but a developer could also demolish the existing structure for a new building. Leases currently occupy parts of the building, but expire at the end of 2017.
An LLC has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 267 Ainslie Street, in eastern Williamsburg, two blocks south of the L’s Graham Avenue stop. The structure will measure 5,000 square feet in total, which works out to units averaging roughly 835 square feet in size. An existing two-story, 1,650 square-foot townhouse must first be demolished, and Woody Chen’s InFocus is the applicant of record.
YIMBY previously posted renderings of a tentative redesign and redevelopment set for the Macy’s store in Downtown Brooklyn, and now we have another submission from the project’s competition, though evidently this creation was not selected. The design comes from Leeser Architecture and would have featured two residential towers in addition to new and revamped retail space.
As development in Brooklyn pushes further east, apartment buildings are slowly filling the sleepy triangular piece of Bed Stuy known as Ocean Hill, near Broadway Junction in East New York. A tipster has sent YIMBY a rendering for one such development, a 32-unit building at 1325 Herkimer Street.
The Bedford-Nostrand G train stop is ground zero for new construction in Bed Stuy, and yesterday, plans were filed to construct a six-story building a few blocks to the east at 253 Tompkins Avenue, across the street from Herbert Von King Park.
