New hotel developments in Williamsburg have tended to cluster along the northern edge of the neighborhood in recent years, but one project will soon get underway at 626 Driggs Avenue, on the corner of North 3rd Street, for which YIMBY now has a fresh set of renderings. SK Development and CBSK Ironstate are developing, and Garrison Architects is designing the building.
Last year, an investor closed on a huge commercial site next to the Franklin Avenue C train stop in Bed Stuy for $19,500,000, sparking questions about the future of several storefronts on the busy corner. Now, plans have surfaced for an eight-story, 119-unit building on the property at 1134 Fulton Street, designed (of course) by Karl Fischer.
Bedford Avenue in southern Bed Stuy has become a hotbed of new construction, and the latest project nearing the finish line is a single-story conversion that’s risen into a six-story apartment building between Madison Street and Putnam Avenue.
Harlem+Bespoke reports a 10-story, 13-unit mixed-use building will imminently begin construction at the vacant lot of 2171 Frederick Douglas Boulevard, in Harlem at West 117th Street. B Plus Realty had filed applications last December for the 15,235 square-foot building, and Raul Cabato is the architect of record. A completion date and renderings have yet to be released.
Curbed has the reveal for The Amirian Group’s planned 12-story, nine-unit residential building at 117 West 21st Street, in eastern Chelsea. The site is currently occupied by a four-story commercial structure, but the developer plans to expand upon the existing building rather than demolish it. GRADE Architecture is designing, and the developer acquired the site for $28.5 million in March.
