Last September, YIMBY brought you news of a 26-story, 115-unit mixed-use building planned for 27-21 44th Drive, in Long Island City, which Silvercup Properties is developing. The Court Square Blog now reports demolition of the site’s former single-story structure is nearly complete. The DOB also approved permits in April, so construction is likely now imminent.
An LLC has filed applications for six-story, 10-unit residential building measuring 8,820 square feet at 23-31 Astoria Boulevard, in western Astoria. Frank Petruso is designing, and each unit will average nearly 900 square feet. An existing three-story mixed-use building must first be demolished.
Brokelyn spotted the incoming 223 affordable units becoming available at the affordable mixed-use development dubbed Livonia Commons, with buildings at 491 Sheffield, 494 Sheffield, 494 Georgia, and 481 Williams Avenues, in East New York. L+M Dev. Partners and Dunn Dev. Corp. are the developers, and retail space will measure 16,000 square feet. Completion is expected in the beginning of 2016.
AVO Construction has filed applications for a four-story, single-family townhouse measuring 2,630 square feet at 282 North 6th Street, in Williamsburg. The developer also filed applications back in November for a very similar structure on the same plot of land at 65 Havemeyer Street; additional single-family townhouses can be expected. Schneider Associates is designing, and the existing single-story warehouse spanning 276-288 North 6th Street recently passed pre-demolition inspection.
In 2013, it was reported that WeWork was in talks for 500,000 square feet at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. YIMBY has now obtained plans for a new mixed-use structure on the site, which would host both a WeWork/WeLive, with the design coming from S9/Perkins Eastman.
