Just a few blocks south of 25 Kent Avenue, located in the same Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, 187 Kent Avenue is a new seven-story mixed-use residential project rising between Metropolitan Avenue and North 3rd Street. Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. is the architect of record, and the site is being developed by CW Realty Management, who purchased it for $43 million, or $512 per square foot. The building is already a couple floors off the ground and will eventually stand around 85 feet tall, and contain a total of 140,036 square feet of space.
Construction has nearly wrapped on a new residential property located adjacent to the elevated portions of the N and W subway lines in Long Island City. The low-rise building sits mid-block at 36-27 31st Street with TCO approvals anticipated for October 2018.
Permits have been filed for a residential building at 422 West 49th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. The site is located in the heart of the neighborhood, equally two and a half avenues from Times Square and the Hudson River. Mortar ARCH + DEV will be responsible for the development and design.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 25-28 30th Drive in Astoria, Queens. The site is five blocks away from the 30th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. Sanford Petropoulos is listed as behind the applications.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on plans to build a 40-story mixed-use tower on the wedge-shaped 570 Fulton Street lot in Downtown Brooklyn. Renderings have now surfaced of the proposal, and though they are low in quality, they still reveal quite a lot about the project. The proposition would be a good step forward for Brooklyn’s densification, and the new office space will help ameliorate the Borough’s residential imbalance.
