Building applications have been filed for a new medical center in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, at 2505 Coney Island Avenue. The structure will rise three floors, and have a total construction area of 61,865 square feet, as well as a 71-car garage in the basement. The cellar will hold 9,941 square feet of commercial storage space, and above that, an ambulatory treatment/diagnostic center will occupy 31,127 square feet. Thomas Scibilia of N.A. Design Studio is the architect of record, and Nate Weinstock of The Marcal Group is listed as the developer.
New dormitories don’t often appear in Williamsburg, but back in May of 2016, YIMBY reported on new building filings for 292 North 8th Street, a substantial site that spans through the block to 7th Street. Today, we have the full reveal for the project, which is being designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects, and developed by Macro Sea and the Kamali Organization.
Last week, YIMBY reported that testing had begun on 701 Seventh Avenue’s enormous new billboard. Now, it has been activated in full, as photographed yesterday by mchlanglo793. The 18,000 square-foot LED screen is the largest in Times Square, and will soon be joined by a 17,000 square-foot screen immediately across the street, at 1568 Broadway, site of the former Doubletree Hotel. As for 701 Seventh Avenue, aka the Marriott Edition Times Square, the exterior is almost fully glassed, and opening is a few months out.
The Durst Organization acquired the development site surrounding and including 27-29 Queens Plaza North last December for $173.5 million, and while SLCE Architects had previously conceived plans for a tower nearing supertall status, the design now appears to be changing. Handel Architects has filed for permits for a two-story retail building that will rise at 29-23 Queens Plaza North, on the southwestern corner of the site, which will have a total construction area of just over 20,000 square feet. There will be 10,333 square feet of commercial space within, and the structure will rise 41 feet to its rooftop.
Back in February of 2016, YIMBY revealed a new four-story condominium building coming to 371 Baltic Street, in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood. Now, job applications have been filed for the site, indicating that construction is about to move forward. Permits were also filed back in 2014, however, there have been changes since then, when the original plan called for preserving the first two floors of an extant structure. Instead, that has been demolished completely. The scope of the project has remained almost the same, totaling 4,998 square feet of residential space, to be divided among four units.
