A seven-story residential building is coming to the heart of East Williamsburg, on Montrose Avenue between Humboldt Street and Avenue of Puerto Rico. New building applications were filed Tuesday for the project at 172 Montrose Avenue, a block and a half from the Montrose Avenue L stop.
Midtown-based PS-5 Development has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 356 Baltic Street, in Cobble Hill, four blocks south of the Bergen Street stop on the F and G trains. The project will measure 4,897 square feet in total, which means full-floor units will average 1,224 square feet apiece, indicative of condos. The unit on the fourth floor will also include a fifth-floor penthouse. Anthony Morena’s Midtown-based Arch + Dev Mortar is the architect of record. A single-story garage structure must first be demolished.
Back in 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a seven-story, 24-unit residential building at 1044 Bedford Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, and renderings surfaced of the project earlier this year. But this past October, Prime Rok Real Estate acquired the site for $5.26 million, according to DNAinfo, and their in-house team has made slight design changes. The latest plans retain what was previously approved – that the majority of rental units will have one- and two-bedroom configurations. Construction is expected to begin later this month and should be finished by 2017.
Property owner Lipa Rubin, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 1355 Putnam Avenue, in central Bushwick, six blocks from the Gates Avenue stop on the J and Z trains. The structure will measure 4,023 square feet on the vacant, 18-foot-wide lot, and units will average a rental-sized 575 square feet apiece. One of the fourth-floor units will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse, according to the Schedule A. Boaz Golani’s Bronx-based BMG Design Build is the applicant of record.
When YIMBY checked in on the bluestone-clad condo building at 155 West 18th Street last month, windows were going in and the facade was snapping into place. Now, we have more renderings of the exterior and the apartments at the 11-story development.
