Last March, Quinlan Development Group, along with Building & Land Technology, purchased the 10-story commercial building turned storage facility at 41 Flatbush Avenue, in Downtown Brooklyn, for $89.4 million, and now Commercial Observer has the first glimpse of the property’s planned office conversion. The building measures 260,866 square feet, and retail space will span the ground floor while offices will spread across the remainder. Interior spaces feature 13-foot-high, terra cotta-clad ceilings, and the exterior façade will be limestone. A rooftop deck is also indicated in the Schedule A, and Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect of record.
Property owner Phillip Li has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 312 83rd Street, in Bay Ridge, three blocks north of the 86th Street stop on the R train. The building will measure 4,183 square feet, and units will average 837 square feet, although one of the fourth-floor units will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse. Ying Li’s Sunset Park-based City Building NY Architect is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Manhattan Residential has acquired the three-story commercial building at 327 East 84th Street, in Yorkville, for $11.8 million and plans to convert and expand the property into residential units, according to Commercial Observer. The building measures 11,583 square feet, but roughly 5,000 square feet of unused development rights exist. Five or six condominiums are planned, which would average roughly 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. Ariel Property Advisors brokered the deal.
At the end of 2014, YIMBY posted the first renderings for the Collegiate Campus’ expansion at 301 Freedom Place South, between West 61st and 62nd Streets in the new Riverside Center development, which was initially set to be designed by Gluck+. Since then, Kohn Pedersen Fox has replaced Gluck+ as the design architect, and we now have the first rendering of what the building will actually look like.
The wrecking ball came last year for an aging factory at 10 Lexington Avenue, on the corner of Grand Avenue in Clinton Hill. Now, a five-story apartment building is rising in its place, and YIMBY has the first renderings of the project.
