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.
Today YIMBY has the reveal for the first renderings of 962-966 Bushwick Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The project will create two structures to each side of Calvary and Saint Cyprian’s Church, which is to remain an active place of worship following the development’s completion. Royalton Capital is behind the project.
Leasing is now underway at Twenty Broad Street, a 29-story rental development designed by CetraRuddy Architecture. With full completion imminent, the apartments join an expanding list of new or converted residential buildings in the city’s evolving Financial District.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 445 Grand Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Metropolitan Avenue subway station, serviced by the G and L trains. Ranger Properties is listed as responsible for the development.
The soon-to-be tallest skyscraper in Brooklyn is now on the verge of truly towering heights. Since YIMBY last visited Brooklyn Point, the concrete has risen 20 additional floors above street level. The installation of several segments of the façade has added another new element, offering a glimpse at the glass and white paneling soon to dominate the borough’s skyline, at least until 9 DeKalb’s imminent rise nearby. Extell is responsible for the development.
