Today’s housing lottery round-up features four buildings in Brooklyn and The Bronx with available affordable units on Housing Connect with deadlines closing within the next seven days.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 1801 66th Street in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Located at the intersection of 66th Street and 18th Avenue, the corner lot is two blocks from the 18th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N train. Benjamin Clyburn under the 651923 18th Avenue LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Work is progressing on the residential conversion and retail addition on the 90-year-old One Wall Street in the Financial District. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Macklowe Properties, the projected $1.5 billion undertaking is poised to be the largest office-to-condominium conversion in New York City history. When complete, the 654-foot-tall property will yield a total of 566 residential units with sales handled and marketed by Compass, as well as a 44,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market and a Life Time fitness center on the lower levels.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission is now reviewing proposals from The Metropolitan Museum of Art to renovate and replace deteriorating elements of the building’s exterior. Areas of focus include the signature sloped glass façades and skylights above the Rockefeller Wing and the Temple of Dendur.
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 2266 Pacific Street, a four-story residential development in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Asher Hershkowitz Architect, the 9,302-square-foot building will yield nine units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are three units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $75,360 to $159,640.
