Earlier this year, applications were filed for a two-family building at 953 Pacific Street, in northwestern Crown Heights, but those plans have since been scraped and a new application calls for a four-story, three-unit residential building, according to DNAinfo. The building will measure 3,984 square feet, with units averaging 1,328 square feet, and Infinity Properties is developing. Suresh Manchanda’s L&C Associates is the architect of record.
Construction is wrapping up at the seven-story, 46-unit subsidized rental building at 382 Lefferts Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, just a block from the 2/5 subway’s Sterling Street stop. In 2007, developer Tali Realty began construction with plans to build 26 condos, but after the financial crisis stalled the project, the City provided funding in return for an all-affordable building, according to Brownstoner. Units are currently in the applications process, and the building will likely open before 2016. Amie Gross is the architect of record.
Related’s redevelopment of the formerly open-air West Side railyards is now becoming very apparent on the skyline, thanks to the rapidly rising 10 Hudson Yards.

Most of Williamsburg’s larger buildings have grown on the Northside, where waterfront parcels were deliberately upzoned. But every once in a while, a developer manages to snag a fairly large parcel like 329 Broadway, on the corner of Rodney Street beneath the elevated J/M/Z tracks.
Just like Brooklyn’s other trendy industrial zones in Bushwick and Williamsburg, the M-1 zone around the Gowanus Canal has become a breeding ground for boutique hotels. The developer of the nearby Union Hotel filed plans last year for a second hotel at 489 Baltic Street, on the border between Gowanus and Boerum Hill. Now YIMBY has renderings for the four-story project between Bond and Nevins Streets.
