One of Brooklyn’s largest new developments has been proposed along Flatbush Avenue, at 625 Fulton Street, which could rise 941 feet to its rooftop. The site is a large trapezoidal piece of land just steps away from JDS Development’s 9 DeKalb Avenue. A major rezoning plan has been put forth that could potentially bring close to 1,800,000 gross square feet of mixed-use development to the nearly 89,000 square foot property, measuring about two acres in size. The site is bounded by Fulton Street to the south, Hudson Avenue to the west, DeKalb Avenue to the north, and Rockwell Place to the east.
New renderings offer a first glimpse of the 400-foot waterfront esplanade to accompany Eliot Spitzer’s massive South Williamsburg rental complex, at 420 Kent Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 120 West 17th Street, in Chelsea, Manhattan, that will contain both residential space and a community facility. Located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, the interior site is one block south of the 18th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. It is also three blocks north of the 14th Street station, serviced by the F, M and L trains. Yaniv Garbo of GB Properties LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
425 Park Avenue held its official topping-out ceremony on December 3, 2018. Its architect Lord Norman Foster, head of Foster + Partners, along with several keynote speakers including David Levinson of L&L Holding Company LLC and Masaoki Kanematsu of Tokyu Land Corporation spoke at the reception, held on the 20th floor of the the building’s first and largest tiered setback. The 41-story, 897-foot tall building is the 17th-tallest building under construction in New York City, and has grown out of the old remains of the original structure that formerly stood on site. The un-demolished section is being repurposed as part of Midtown’s first new full-block office skyscraper in over 50 years. The tower is being developed by L&L Holding Company LLC while Adamson Associates is the architect of record.
Earlier this week, ground was broken for a new mixed-use development by joint venture partners Ironstate Development Company and Brookfield in Downtown Montclair, New Jersey. The project includes a mix of residential units, retail, offices, art space, public parking, and a pedestrian plaza. It is expected to create a vibrant arts and entertainment district near the adjacent Wellmont Theater, on Bloomfield Avenue. Consisting of two buildings on either side of Seymour Street facing the theater and a 12,000 square foot plaza, the development will span 2.5 acres in all.
