BK Developers and RYBAK Development have acquired, for $11.5 million, the development site at 88 Withers Street, located on the corner of Leonard Street in northern Williamsburg, Real Estate Weekly reported. The site boasts plans, green-lighted by the Department of Buildings in 2015, for a nine-story, 33-unit mixed-use project measuring 39,815 square feet. The new building would include 2,768 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units on the third through ninth floors. The apartments should average 938 square feet apiece, which means either condominiums or rentals could be in the works. Platt Byard Dovell White Architects is the architect. When YIMBY visited the site in the spring, the site’s former single-story warehouse had been demolished.
Construction is now up to the 17th floor on the 42-story, 1,028-unit mixed-use complex under development at 606 West 57th Street, located on a large portion of the block bounded by West 56th and 57th streets and 11th and 12th avenues in Hell’s Kitchen. Progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums.
Construction is now four stories up on the eight-story, 15-unit residential project under development at 42-83 Hunter Street, in the Queens Plaza/Court Square section of Long Island City. Progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the new building will measure 15,948 square feet and stand 81 feet in height to its roof. The residential units will be located on the ground through eighth floors and should average 822 square feet apiece. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. The Lions Group is the developer and Jon Yung’s Flushing-based MY Architect is the architect of record. Completion is expected in early 2017.

An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a five-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 181 North 7th Street, in northern Williamsburg. The project will measure 14,523 square feet. It will include a 1,972-square-foot medical office on the ground and cellar levels, followed by residential units on the second through fifth floors. The apartments should average 891 square feet, which means either rentals or condos could be in the works. Michael Avramides’s Midtown East-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot lot is occupied by a two-story residential building. Demolition permits were recently filed.
