A school already a shining example of adaptive reuse in the city’s first historic district is about to do it again, this time for a much younger group of students. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation…
Last summer, YIMBY reported on plans to build an 11-story, mixed-use project at 141-26 Northern Boulevard in Flushing, not too far from the neighborhood’s bustling downtown. Now, we have the first look at what will rise on the site between Bowne Street and Parsons Boulevard.
Eastern Greenpoint has long been grittier and more industrial than its western sibling, but that hasn’t stopped developers from venturing to the area around the elevated Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Newtown Wastewater Treatment Plant. Yesterday, new building applications were filed for a five-story apartment building at 19 Hausman Street, half a block north of the elevated highway that runs along Meeker Avenue.
Last month, YIMBY reported on applications for JDS Development and Chetrit Group’s planned 73-story, 1,066-foot-tall residential tower at 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension, in Downtown Brooklyn, and now the New York Times has new details on the project, as well as an updated rendering. The tower portion would be connected to the Dime Savings Bank building at 9 DeKalb Avenue, an individual landmark, and would require the demolition of part of the structure. That means the Landmarks Preservation Commission would have to approve alterations to the bank building. The first hearing is scheduled for March 15. The interior of the 97,000-square-foot bank building, which is also an interior landmark, is expected to be transformed into retail space.
Earlier this week, news broke that Savanna and Hong Kong-based Atom Assets were planning a 26-story, 90,000 square-foot office building at 106 West 56th Street, in Midtown, and now Real Estate Weekly has a rendering of the project. As reported earlier, the new building will feature boutique office space geared towards smaller business tenants. The Perkins Eastman-designed project will feature multiple terraced setbacks and floor plates of varying sizes, ranging from 5,000 square feet on the lower levels to 2,000 square feet towards the top. The developers received an acquisition loan from United Overseas Bank to purchase the existing nine-story office building. Demolition will begin in early 2017 and completion is expected in 2019.
