Construction has topped out and façade installation is underway on the seven-story, 27-unit residential redevelopment underway at 1004 Gates Avenue, in Ocean Hill. The building’s design has also slightly changed, as seen in a rendering courtesy of a tipster. The latest building permits indicate the project measures 28,708 square feet, which means its residential units should average 1,063 square feet apiece. The apartments, rentals, will boast layouts with two- to three-bedroom configurations. The Brooklyn-based Loketch Group is the developer and Williamsburg-based Ellipses Design is behind the design. Occupancy is expected in early 2017.
