The Department of City Planning recently signed off on preliminary proposals to construct an eight-story mixed-use property in Rego Park, Queens. The development site is located at 68-19 Woodhaven Boulevard and could eventually comprise a mix of income-restricted apartments, market-rate homes, ground-floor retail, and a medical office suite.
Work is continuing on “The Alfred on Fleet,” a 12-story residential building at 112 Fleet Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 167 Willoughby Street, the project is designed by Bricolage Design Associates and developed by Boomerang Development Group and will yield 24,250 square feet and 23 condominium units.
YIMBY’s Turkey Week tour of stalled projects continues with 45 Park Place, a 667-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Tribeca. Designed by SOMA Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects as the executive and residential architect, the 43-story tower has been on hold since late 2019. Sharif el-Gamal of Soho Properties is developing the project, with Piero Lissoni serving as the interior designer. 45 Park Place is located between Church Street and West Broadway, just to the north of the border with the Financial District. Permasteelisa Group and Vidaris are the façade consultants.
A new mixed-use affordable housing property could soon break ground at 261 Walton Avenue in Mott Haven, The Bronx following review by the Department of City Planning. The proposals specify 208,849 square feet of built-up area that would support 206 rental apartments, ground-floor retail, and a cellar-level parking garage for 12 vehicles.
Work is continuing on the loft conversion and two-story expansion of 168 Plymouth Street in the DUMBO, Brooklyn Historic District. Led by Alloy Development, the development will bring 46 units to a 100-year-old structure that was once the home of the Concrete Daylight Factory at 42 Jay Street. The adjacent 130-year-old Brick & Timber Building at 50 Jay Street is also part of the project and is undergoing renovations as well as a one-story expansion. The site is located at the southwestern corner of Plymouth and Jay Streets, a short walk from the East River and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
