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.
Plans were filed yesterday to build a six-story supportive housing development for veterans at 984 Woodycrest Avenue, in the Highbridge section of the southwestern Bronx. CMC Development Group posted this image on their website of the project, which will apparently be clad in red brick on the upper floors and gray brick on the ground floor.
Brownstoner reports construction is in full swing at 95 South 5th Street, in western Williamsburg, where Horrigan Development has planned a six-story, 23-unit mixed-use building incorporating the façade of the former three-story townhouse. The project was revealed by YIMBY last Fall, and construction is now a few floor ups. Standard Architects is designing.
Since YIMBY revealed Magnum Real Estate Group’s plans for 196 Orchard Street back in February, Real Estate Equities has partnered with Magnum to develop the 10-story, 83-unit mixed-use building. The two developers will soon close on the assemblage for $108 million, reports The Real Deal. Demolition of the existing single-story buildings should follow.
