In exciting news for Sunset Park, plans for 6208 8th Avenue are now pushing closer to reality. A major proposal for the former railroad site in Brooklyn would create over one million square feet of mixed-use development. The structures would include commercial, residential, and community facility space. The site is next door to the 8th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N trains. Since YIMBY last checked in on progress, the design has not changed, but new information has now been released providing specific details for the proposal.
Located at 143 Fulton Street in the Financial District, the new 364-foot-tall and 298-room Moxy hotel is almost complete, with the final exterior finishes underway at the base of the tower. Two entrances to the building are located on Fulton Street and Ann Street, and up above, the project features a dark glass facade atop a four-story podium. SLCE Architects is the architect, while the developer of the nearly 129,000 square foot property is Tribeca Associates. Interiors are being done by Stonehill & Taylor.
Last but not least in this week’s updates on the city’s Brownsville plan is the first look at Livonia 4, a mixed-use, multi-site development comprised of a series of adjacent parcels in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Construction is expected to begin this year and the project is the third new development announced as part of “The Brownsville Plan,” with design by Magnusson Architecture and Planning. The $1 billion initiative is expected to yield over 2,500 affordable homes, infrastructure upgrades, arts and cultural facilities, and new community service programs.
