New buildings replace old ones quite frequently, and skylines evolve. It isn’t very often that a development literally redraws the map, but that’s what has happened with Hudson Lights, located in downtown Fort Lee, N.J.
The neighborhoods just south and east of Prospect Park are ground zero for new construction and rising rents. A little single-family house at 62 East 21st Street, between Caton and Woodruff Avenues, met the wrecking ball last year for an apartment building. Now we have a look at what’s replacing it.
An anonymous Hudson Square-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 224 North 6th Street, in North Williamsburg. The project will measure 4,980 square feet, which means its residential units should average 1,660 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be two duplexes and one triplex apartment. Two of the units will also have access to space in an upper penthouse level. Hudson Square-based Jorge Mastropierto Architects Atelier is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot site is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Brooklyn-based RedSky Capital has filed applications for a two-story, 7,986-square-foot retail building at 204 Bedford Avenue, in North Williamsburg. The project will contain 3,675 square feet of commercial-retail space along the cellar, ground, and second floors. The 32-foot-tall structure will be topped by a roof terrace. Jessica Wetter’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 3,750-square-foot site is currently occupied by a three-story mixed-use building; demolition permits were filed in August. The Bedford Avenue stop on the L train is two blocks away.
A schematic drawing has been revealed of the six-story, 15-unit residential building planned at 303 West 137th Street, in Harlem. Demolition is also underway on the site’s former three-story townhouse, Harlem+Bespoke reports. The project is technically an expansion of the existing building and the foundation will be retained. The project will have 14,324 square feet of residential space, which means the units should average 955 square feet apiece. ICER Real Estate is the developer and SRA Architecture + Engineering is the architect of record. Completion is expected in the first half of 2017.
