Last month, permits were filed for a new five-story residential building at 326 Avenue U in the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn. Today, YIMBY has an exclusive first look at the proposed design, by IMC Architecture. The building follows their mission for creating intelligent sustainable communities by utilizing efficient design and planning.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 491 Baltic Street in Boerum Hill, by the border with Gowanus, Brooklyn. The site is eight blocks from the Barclays Center subway station, a crossroads for the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q, R, and W trains. Tankhouse Development is responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a 15-story mixed-use building at 1331 Jerome Avenue, in Mount Eden, The Bronx. The site is two blocks away from the 170th Street subway station, serviced by the 4 trains, and six blocks from an identically named station along the Grand Concourse street, serviced by the D trains. Developer Peter Fine is behind the applications.
Progress on the second highest tower in the Hudson Yards mega-development has reached a milestone. 35 Hudson Yards has officially topped out at 1,009 feet. Now that it has reached that height, it is the ninth tallest structure in New York City and 19th tallest in the United States. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development. Next door, 30 Hudson Yards is tantalizingly close to topping out, but the milestone has not yet officially occurred.
Plans for the replacement at 119-121 2nd Avenue have been submitted to the Landmark Preservation Commission, allowing the public a first look at what may be coming to an East Village corner. The three lots previously on the site were cleared from the devastating 2015 East Village gas explosion, which injured 19 and caused two deaths. The two lots were purchased for $9.15 million in 2017, and permits were filed in late February 2018 for the replacement. Nexus Development will be responsible for the rebuild, first revealed by EV Grieve.
