The 23-story, 303-unit mixed-use building under development at 38 Sixth Avenue, at the corner of Dean Street in Prospect Heights, has topped out. Three months ago, the structure was merely two stories above street level. It now encompasses 341,595 square feet. It will host 8,700 square feet of retail space and medical offices on the ground floor, followed by 303 affordable residential units. All of the rental apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Amenities include a 73-car underground garage, space for a whopping 400 bikes, private residential storage space, a fitness center with a yoga room, a children’s playroom, and a terrace on the 16th floor. Greenland Forest City Partners, comprising of Greenland USA (the US branch of Shanghai-based Greenland Group) and Forest City Ratner Companies, is the developer. The duo are heading the 17-building Pacific Park mixed-use mega-development, of which 38 Sixth Avenue is a part. SHoP Architects is behind the design. Completion can probably be expected later this year or in early 2017.
Property owner Zios Sachtouris has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 82-22 South Conduit Avenue, in Lindenwood. The structure will measure 11,905 square feet and its residential units should average 1,273 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The residences will take on a townhouse-style configuration, with each unit spanning across all four levels. Each unit will come with a single, enclosed parking space on the ground floor. Anthony C. Villano’s Brooklyn-based ACV Architecture is the architect of record. The 10,188-square-foot site, which is currently vacant, fronts a street that doesn’t exist yet. According to the tax lot map, there’s going to be a new street that diagonally connects Linden Boulevard and 149th Avenue. The dead ends of 80th, 81st, 82nd, and 84th streets will connect to the new street. For reference, the new building will be located between 82nd and 84th streets.
