Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 1283 Ocean Avenue in Flatbush-Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Avenue H subway station serviced by the Q trains, and ten blocks away from the Flatbush Avenue subway station, end of the line for 2 and 5 trains and center of a substantial commercial intersection. Vision Developers LLC is responsible for the development.
Going east into the Long Island town of Mineola, a large 312-unit residential and mixed-use project developed by Sabre Real Estate has its first renderings. The building is called One Third Ave, and has 1,600 square feet of available retail space left at the southwest intersection of 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street. The property sits one block away from the Mineola Train Station, making it less than forty minutes away from Midtown. Steven B. Jacobs is the designer of the building, with units coming in one- to three-bedroom spreads with private terraces for penthouses.
Last week, a proposal for a major new development at 6208 8th Avenue, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, began to wind its way through the City’s planning processes. Today, we have the exclusive first look at another mega-project proposed directly across the street, at 6205 8th Avenue, where DXA Studio has designed an enormous two-block plan that would cover even more of the open railway tracks that currently leave the neighborhood bereft of its obvious potential.
A weave of scaffolding and black netting has now shrouded the exterior facade of a former office building at 250 Fifth Avenue, which will soon be reborn as a hotel. The site is in NoMad, between West 28th Street and West 29th Street. With the facade designated as a landmark within the Madison Square North Historic District, the original five-story McKim, Mead and White structure, completed in 1907, will be part of the conversion that also calls for a new 23-story tower to the west of the original 111 year-old structure.
