Joseph Brunner and Abe Mandel are set to acquire the single-story warehouse buildings spanning 296-306 Wythe Avenue, in western Williamsburg, two blocks in from the East River, for roughly $27 million. The developers plan to build a residential development on the site, featuring retail space on the ground floor. When the sale closes, the transaction would be a price record in the neighborhood at nearly $700 per buildable square foot.
Dubbed Lefferts Place Mews, a slew of three-story. townhouse-style buildings are getting their finishing touches at 76-96 Lefferts Place, in southern Clinton Hill, a block from the Franklin Avenue stop on the C train. The development will total 31 condominium units, and Jack Bain is the developer, according to Brownstoner. Design Studio Associates is designing, whereas Schneider Associates is serving as the architect of record. Move-ins are expected later this year.
The new condominium project under construction at 45 East 22nd Street is already making significant headway, and YIMBY posted an update of the tower’s progress only a few weeks ago. But a tipster has sent along a photo of new signage that has just gone up along the construction fencing, and we also have a fresh rendering of what the 777-foot tall building will look like, viewed with its neighbors along Madison Square Park.
Last week, YIMBY brought you the rendering for 1325 Herkimer Street, an Issac and Stern-designed apartment building in Bed-Stuy. Now we’ve got the first look at 641 Dekalb Avenue, another Bed-Stuy residential project from the same architect and developer.
The 51-story tower rising at 5 Beekman Street, next to the landmarked, 19th century office building known as Temple Court, is close to topping out. A reader sent along these construction shots and told YIMBY that workers are constructing the top four floors of mechanicals for the 700-foot-tall structure.
