Property owner Jenel Management is clearing out the three-story retail building at 399 Knickerbocker Avenue, in northern Bushwick, ahead of planned renovations, according to DNAinfo. The structure will be expanded and transformed into a 42,500 square-foot commercial building, featuring six retail units — three on the ground floor, followed by two on the second floor and one on the third. Adrian Figueroa’s Hudson Square-based SRA Architecture is designing, and the current retail tenant is preparing to vacate.
Earlier this year, YIMBY brought you a proposal for the transformation of One Wall Street created by CetraRuddy. While that version of the tower will remain unbuilt, we now have the first rendering of actual plans, created by Robert A.M. Stern for developer Macklowe Properties, as well as word that the development is seeking $100 million in EB-5 funding, or 6.6% of its projected cost of $1.502 billion.
The condo-fication of 14th Street continues with 209 West 14th Street, where a four-story building has just been demolished to make way for eleven stories of apartments. A YIMBY reader sent along photos of a new rendering posted on the construction fence between Seventh and Eighth Avenues last week.
One of the last under-developed plots on Williamsburg’s pricey Northside is about to grow a six-story building. Builder Moshe Braver has decided to expand a mid-century brick warehouse at 286 Wythe Avenue, on the corner of North 1st Street, into a 70-foot-tall mixed-use development.
RGS Holdings has partnered with the property owner of 300 West 122nd Street, in Harlem, to develop a 12-story, 127-unit mixed-use building, according to Curbed. The site also includes the two-story building at 223 St. Nicholas Avenue, which will have to be demolished. The new building will measure roughly 161,300 square feet, and features 28,700 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The units will be condominiums, and a slew of amenities are included. PBDW Architects is designing, and the project is expected to be complete in 2017.
