The owner of 1030 Lorimer Street, in southern Greenpoint, has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building measuring nearly 5,000 square feet. Steven Schneider, of Schneider Associates, is designing, and an existing three-story, townhouse must first be demolished.
Last fall, The Claremont Group received funding to convert the 25-story office building at 99-101 Wall Street, in the Financial District, into residential. Curbed spotted the launch of the building’s teaser site, and the site confirms plans for 52 luxury condominium units, of which are being designed by Piet Boon. Sales are expected to launch this spring.
Brownstoner noticed concrete is up two stories at 168-180 Franklin Avenue, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, where Adam America and the Horizon Group are constructing a five-story, 118-unit luxury residential building, which was revealed by YIMBY last summer. Issac & Stern Architects is designing, and completion is expected in the spring of 2016.
The changes occurring in Downtown Brooklyn are among the largest in any neighborhood in New York City, and the latest photos by Tectonic show the first two CityPoint towers topping out, and the Avalon Willoughby Square reaching for its final floors. With both projects nearing completion, the focus of construction in the neighborhood will soon shift to the southeast for an even more impressive round two.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY revealed this design for an expansion at 555 Grand Street in Williamsburg, and now we have the rendering for another addition down the block, at 629 Grand Street between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue. Plans were filed last year to expand the four-story, mixed-use building to five stories and add four apartments to its existing three units.
