Earlier this month, we covered permits filed for the Faith Chapel Baptist Church at 552 Prospect Place, Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Today, thanks to a YIMBY reader’s tip, we can reveal renderings for the site’s soon-to-be replacement. As one might expect for such a unique building, a portion of the extant structure will be preserved, but not as much as one might expect. Stephan Tchorbajian of Hye Rise Consulting is listed as responsible for the development.
Fresh renderings have revealed the facade and updated layouts of a new condominium development on the rise at 37 Lafayette Avenue, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The structure will climb 10 stories and contain a mix of residential, medical office, and retail space.
Permits have been filed for a 91-room dormitory at 6301 Riverdale Avenue on the College of Mount Saint Vincent campus, in The Bronx. The North Riverdale site is a sixteen-minute bus ride away from the Van Cortlandt Park subway station at 242nd Street, end of the line for the 1 train. The College’s Vice President of Operations Kevin DeGroat is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a six-story building at 17 Lamont Court at the Northern border of East Flatbush, across from Crown Heights, in Brooklyn. The site is five blocks from the Sterling Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Moshe Tal is listed as responsible for the development.
Rising now at 180 East 88th Street is the soon-to-be tallest tower on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. The 31-story residential building is being developed and designed by DDG, with aesthetic inspiration derived from renowned Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. The structure has reached its 28th floor, leaving three stories remaining before topping-out occurs.
