Last month, YIMBY broke the story for a major site to be developed at 115 River Road, in Edgewater, New Jersey. While we initially reported the address at 615 River Road, that was incorrect; however, the developer of 615 River Road has now filed a lawsuit in Federal Court, alleging that a series of “corrupt transactions” led to the Borough’s vote to seize the property by eminent domain back in September, in a secret a bid to transfer the lot to developer Fred Daibes, who is behind 115 River Road.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for renderings of a 15-story affordable housing development at 1932 Bryant Avenue, in The Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood. The site will yield 319 affordable apartments just two blocks away from the West Farms Square Subway Station, which is serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The Bronx Zoo is also nearby, in the same park as the New York Botanical Garden. Second Farms Neighborhood Housing is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a four-story residential building at 701 Lafayette Avenue, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The location is three blocks east of the Nostrand Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the G trains. The project is one of three conjoined sites, with IMC Architecture responsible for all three facades, and the buildings on 701 and 703.
An imaged displayed onsite at 127 West 112th Street has provided YIMBY with a good look at the future design. The seven-story structure will include large windows and nine balconies, and what will likely be a private terrace on the top floor. The material used will probably be brick, with the possibility of metal paneling for accents. Three trees will be planted outside the building. Karl Fischer is responsible for the design.
Permits have been filed for a three-story residence at 1466 East 5th Street, in Midwood, Brooklyn. The project is situated in a residential area, and is six blocks away from Avenue N, serviced by the F train. Aviva Didia will be responsible for the development.
