Back in January of 2015, YIMBY first reported on a proposal for a new development at 92-100 Vandam Street, in the “Hudson Square” neighborhood to the north of the Holland Tunnel. Since then, several major projects have begun construction in the vicinity, including 555-565 Broome Street. Now, YIMBY has confirmation that the original suspected design for 92-100 Vandam is indeed accurate, and is now moving forward through the planning process.
Downtown Brooklyn’s development boom only seems to be accelerating, with every recent completion seemingly matched by another tower breaking ground. Now, YIMBY has the first word as well as the reveal for a major project planned at 202-208 Tillary Street. The applicants have applied for a rezoning of the site for inclusion within the official Special Downtown Brooklyn District, and the resulting plans are set to allow two connected towers of 23 and 21 floors.
East New York has been in the headlines recently thanks to a major rezoning that is paving the way for the area’s transformation into a denser and fully revitalized neighborhood, and now YIMBY has the first images of a major new development coming to 1427-1449 Loring Avenue. The plans, designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC, would result in four buildings covering an entire city block.
Hudson Yards is making major progress, with Related’s core redevelopment over the Eastern Yards now racing towards completion. While progress on the Western Yards is still a few years away, another large site on the southern side of West 30th Street is set for an impressive transformation from under-used retail and industrial buildings into a two-towered residential and commercial project that will top-out 700 feet above street level.
A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for four five-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 3506 Farragut Road, located on the southern end of East Flatbush. The buildings will measure 6,500 square feet each. Across all four, the apartments should average 750 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Asher Hershkowitz’s Brooklyn-based firm is the architect of record. The 5,700-square-foot plot is occupied by a two-story wood-framed house. Demolition permits have not been filed.
