City officials unveiled a massive rezoning last night for East Harlem, where the administration hopes to encourage towers as tall as 30 stories, less parking for new buildings, and more ground floor retail.
The Othman family is partnering with an unknown developer to build an eight-story, 54-unit mixed-use building at 801 Washington Avenue, located at the corner of Lincoln Place in western Crown Heights. The plans are still in the preliminary stages.
Property owner Richard Juliano has completed the renovation of the two-story, two-unit rowhome at 439 36th Street, in Greenwood Heights. The 35-foot-tall structure, which includes a basement, received a new façade, a redesigned interior, and upgraded appliances and infrastructure components. Samuel Choi’s Brooklyn-based S&K Building System Solutions is the applicant of record. Move-ins can probably be expected imminently, if it’s not already occupied. The 36th Street stop on the D, N, and R trains is at the corner of the block.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 185 Devoe Street, in central Williamsburg. The project will measure 5,439 square feet and its residential units should average 720 square feet apiece. That means rental apartments are likely in the works. Dmitriy Shenker’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 24-foot-wide, 1,800-square-foot site is occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Graham Avenue stop on the L train is around the block.
The last time YIMBY checked in on the new 58-story and 800-foot tall tower coming to 111 Murray Street, the building was just creeping above ground level. Now, a little over two months later, the structure is already climbing past its 15th floor, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer Kevin LeClerc.
