Construction is now underway on a Phase I of a sprawling, mixed-use development in Coney Island, Brooklyn. Located at 1709 Surf Avenue, the complex will eventually deliver 1,000 residential units, 150,000 square feet of retail space, and around 80,000 square feet of office area.
Demolition permits have been filed for 1622-1632 York Avenue in Yorkville, Manhattan. The plans include the demolition of six adjacent four-story buildings to make way for a fourteen-story assisted living facility at the corner of East 86th Street. The Engel Burman Group is responsible for the applications.
Construction at 282 Elbert Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn has nearly wrapped following some minor scheduling delays earlier this year. The project was originally anticipated to be complete this past summer.
Permits have been filed for a new six-story residential building at 670 Union Street, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Gowanus. The site is between 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue, and sits half a block away from the Union Street subway on the R train. The new structure will rise from a lot that is currently home to a pair of two-story buildings, 670A and 670B Union Street, and William Caleo of 668-670 Union LLC is listed as the developer.
Peering through the thick, green fence netting that surrounds the site of 9 DeKalb Avenue, one can now see the foundations for the imminently-1,066-foot-tall residential supertall making progress. Large hollow steel pilings crowd the northern perimeter of the construction site, waiting to be lodged into the ground with the giant piledriver being put to work by several construction workers spotted on site. The 73-story tower is being designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development and Chetrit Group.
