In early 2015, YIMBY reported on plans for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 2746 Fulton Street, located near the corner of Bradford Street, in the Cypress Hills section of East New York. Thanks to the passage of the East New York rezoning in early 2016, a new developer is now proposing a larger project. Brooklyn-based Blessed Homes LLC has filed applications for a six-story, five-unit mixed-use building at the site. It will measure 9,700 square feet and contain 1,870 square feet of ground-floor retail space. There will five full-floor residential units, averaging 1,104 square feet apiece, across the second through sixth floors.
In April 2016, Forest Hills Scenery Family LLC filed applications for three two-story, two-family houses at 65-17 through 65-21 110th Street, in Forest Hills. Those plans never came to fruition, and now the same property owner is filing plans for two three-story, three-unit residential buildings, in addition to a two-story, two-family building, at the same site.
Façade installation is now up to the 17th floor on the 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building, which topped out in October, at 300 Livingston Street, located on the corner of Bond Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The structure can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 734,312 square feet and rise 250 feet to its main roof, or 271 feet to the top of the bulkhead.
One of the last lots to be spoken for near Queensboro Plaza is becoming a nine-story residential building. The project would replace a small two-story brick office building at 41-14 27th Street, between 41st Avenue and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge.
The Ishay Group is planning to convert and expand the vacant four-story, 17,700-square-foot commercial building at 3464 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, located on the corner of Charles Street in The Heights section of Jersey City, N.J. The project, dubbed The Studebaker Lofts, includes expanding the structure vertically by a single floor, Jersey Digs reported. The final product will feature 14 residential units and 2,350 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment approved the plans in April 2015. A construction timeline has not been released.
