YIMBY revealed the seven-story, 30-unit mixed-use building planned at 472 Atlantic Avenue (aka 465 Pacific Street) in Boerum Hill, late last year, and now developers Avery Hall Investments and ARIA Development Group have landed a $34.2 million construction loan, according to Crain’s. The team broke ground on the 85,000 square-foot condo project this week, which will include 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and completion is expected in early 2017. Morris Adjmi is the architect of record.
Bedrock exploration is now taking place at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, near 70th Street in Lincoln Square, according to West Side Rag. Earlier this year, the site — which has 388,000 square feet of development rights — was placed on the market with an asking price of more than $400 million. It’s unknown who exactly is behind the tests, as a developer and architect have not been disclosed. Demolition permits for the existing structure have not yet been filed.
Last year, the city’s housing authority announced plans to renovate Randolph Houses in Harlem, a block-long stretch of old law tenements on 114th Street between Frederick Douglass and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevards. Now NYCHA has filed alteration permits to combine 14 of those buildings into a single structure.
