New renderings are out for the conversion and expansion of the old church at 120 Java Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and YIMBY has the exclusive close-ups. The project is located just three blocks away from the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G trains. The existing structure had functioned as the parish hall for a nearby Episcopal church, Church of the Ascension. Developer Chris Horrigan, of Horrigan Companies, purchased the site in July of 2015 for $4,050,000, along with air rights from the church’s place of worship at 127 Kent Street. The building had been used as a relief spot during Hurricane Sandy. The project has since passed hands, and now SL Development is leading its dramatic transformation and residential rebirth.
120 Java Street isn’t the only church-to-residential project YIMBY can reveal today. We also have a fresh rendering for 24 Fourth Avenue, rising just steps from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, in Boerum Hill. Designed by ODA Architecture, the 12-story, mixed-use building will contain 72 residences, ground floor retail, a community facility, and an enclosed parking structure with accommodations for 16 vehicles.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 246 Maple Street, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. The site is four blocks away from the Sterling Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Croxdale Real Estate Management will be responsible for the development.
With 175 Greenwich Street nearing its opening day and 200 Greenwich Street hopefully expected to begin construction within the next few years, most of the World Trade Center’s rebuilding is nearing completion. But one major hole in Downtown’s fabric still remains, at the site of the former Deutsche Bank Building. Plans for a pot-bellied skyscraper had been proposed around the time of the tower’s demolition, but in the years since, the plot had seemingly been forgotten, and is currently covered in asphalt. Today, YIMBY has a major update on the site, thanks to zombified plans from Chinese developer Dalian Wanda Group, which would yield a new residential and hotel supertall designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.
New renderings are out for the proposed three-story mixed-use building at 82 John Street, in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The project has taken a turn for the conservative, stripping the façade of the proposed hot dipped galvanized steel, replacing it with a grey matte-glazed brick. The site is five blocks away from the York Street subway station, serviced by the F trains.
