On the corner of Wythe Avenue and Rutledge Street, in South Williamsburg, a long-stalled development is finally getting underway at 782 Wythe Avenue. Permits were first filed nearly a decade ago in 2006, but applications for a gut-renovation and conversion were approved this past March, and now YIMBY has the first rendering of the project, which will transform an old commercial building into a synagogue for the Viznitz Congregation.
Development in the towns along the Hudson River is slowly starting to pick up, and now YIMBY has a rendering for a new luxury rental project in Hastings-on-Hudson, the Lofts on Saw Mill River.
The eclectic facade design has finally emerged for two four-story buildings going up at 1444-1446 Bedford Avenue in Crown Heights, after a year and a half of construction.
Abraham Strulovitch had originally filed applications in December, during the building code crunch, for a residential project at 3707 Blackstone Avenue, in the more built-up southern portion of Riverdale. Amendments to the plan now call for an eight-story, 68-unit residential building measuring 40,520 square feet, which will span 3707-3719 Blackstone Avenue and 620 West 238th Street. The average unit will fall just short of 600 square feet, likely indicating rentals, and Shahriar Afshari is designing. The site has been rid of its two-story predecessor, which sat dilapidated until its demise in 2014.
Marin Management Corp. has filed applications at 1647-1651 1st Avenue, in Yorkville, for a 15-story, 38-unit mixed-use building measuring nearly 59,500 square feet. The retail component will take up 1,780 square feet, and DJ Associates Architect is designing. The assemblage includes three four- and five-story tenement buildings on the corner of East 86th Street, and demolition permits have not been filed yet.
