Midtown Equities has tasked Cushman & Wakefield to market the development site at 205 Montague Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, for more than $200 million, according to Crain’s. The property boasts 300,000 square feet of development rights, and the developer has drafted plans for a 44-story residential tower as well as a 62-story version. A relatively small portion of commercial space is included in the base of the tower, where a five-story office and retail building currently sits. Midtown Equities acquired the site for $33 million in 2010.
In September, YIMBY revealed renderings for an office and retail conversion of the two-story, 20,000 square-foot building at 120 North 6th Street, in north Williamsburg, and now renderings have surfaced for another similar development right across the street at 124-136 North 6th Street. At Nos. 124-136, Thor Equities is planning to expand the existing single-story building into a three-story, 20,400 square-foot retail and manufacturing property, with retail on the ground floor and manufacturing on the second and third floors.

The southeastern Bronx neighborhood of Hunts Point is physically isolated, transit-starved, and sees very little new construction. So when a building owner there files plans to expand a single-story storefront into a four-story residential building, it’s noteworthy.
