Aby Rosen’s RFR Realty has filed applications to convert and expand the 4.5-story building at 11 Bond Street, in NoHo, into a commercial property fit for a single retail tenant, according to Bowery Boogie. The 16,410 square-foot building, which also goes by 348 Lafayette Street, is currently a women’s shelter operated by the Center of Urban Community Services. Annabelle Selldorf is designing the project, which would require approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Aby Rosen acquired the property for $26 million over the summer.
Back in April of this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 38-unit mixed-use building at 1930 Bedford Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and now an on-site sketch of the project has been posted, courtesy of photographer Tectonic. It will measure 38,236 square feet in total and will include 7,441 square feet of health care offices on the ground and second floors. Residential units begin on the third floor and should average 810 square feet apiece. Though two two wood-framed structures were demolished over the summer, construction has yet to begin. Nik Lavrinoff is developing and Z Architecture is designing.
An unnamed developer is offering to pay at least $75 million to build a 40-story residential tower at 220 Cadman Plaza West, in Brooklyn Heights, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. The offer is being made to Whitman Owner Corp. and its shareholder residents. If approved, the existing single-story commercial buildings at the site, including 89 Pineapple Walk, would be demolished. In their place, a new residential tower would have possibly hundreds of condo units as well as new retail space. Shareholders are expected to vote before January 15 on whether the board should seriously consider the offer.
Avery Hall Investments is in contract to purchase the grocery store at 120 Fifth Avenue, in northern Park Slope, according to DNAinfo, and plans to close on the site in the second half of 2016. The developer is planning a mixed-use building with residential units and commercial space, although details have yet to be hammered out. A Key Food currently occupies the site, which is reportedly one of the largest development sites in the neighborhood.
C.A. White Inc., based in New Haven, Conn., has filed applications for two residential buildings on a 27-foot-wide block-thru lot at 21 West 17th Street and 16 West 18th Street, in the Flatiron District. The northern one would stand 13 stories tall and have 12 residential units, each averaging 1,863 square feet apiece. The southern one would be a 10-story, nine-unit structure with average residential units of 1,882 square feet, both indicative of condos. Morris Adjmi Architects is the applicant of record. Two- and three-story structures on the 18th and 17th Street ends, respectively, must first be demolished. Both addresses are in the Ladies Mile Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission would have to approve both the demolitions and new construction.
