The controversial redevelopment of Bushwick’s Rheingold Brewery has attracted plenty of press in recent months, but the another huge brewery complex across the street is about to get a new lease on life.

Ocean Avenue in Midwood is positively booming with residential construction. And today we have another project to add to the list at 1924 Avenue M, on the corner of Ocean Avenue.
Over the course of the project’s two-year evolution, YIMBY has chronicled the construction of 505 West 19th Street, in West Chelsea, which now hosts two conjoined buildings. The eastern component will contain 25 condos and two penthouses, while the western structure will have eight full-floor-plus units, as well as a duplex penthouse, which YIMBY can now reveal.
Back in June, YIMBY brought you news of construction beginning on Greenland Forest City Partners’ 23-story and 303-unit mixed-use building at 38 Sixth Avenue, in Prospect Heights, which marked their fourth building to break ground at the Pacific Park redevelopment. Now, applications have been filed for a building right across the street at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street, which will also house a public school. Applications call for a 26-story structure totaling 342,788 square feet. The school will measure 69,858 square feet from the sub-cellar through the sixth floors, and the building’s upper portion, starting on the sixth floor, will hold 323 apartments, averaging 848 square feet apiece.
