Back in November, YIMBY reported on applications for a six-story, 19-unit mixed-use building at 1780 Sheepshead Bay Road, in southern Sheepshead Bay, located four blocks from the Sheepshead Bay stop on the B/Q trains. Now, it appears those plans have been replaced with plans for a larger building, Sheepshead Bites reports. Starealty.Estate acquired the development assemblage at 1780-1784 Sheepshead Bay Road for $3.66 million last February, and now an eight-story mixed-use building is being planned. It’s expected to include commercial-retail and a community facility on the ground and second floors. Rental apartments will fill the upper six floors and the project will feature a 30-car parking garage. The corner lot is currently vacant, although two three-story buildings were filed for demolition earlier this month and are expected to be razed in the next few weeks. Construction is scheduled to begin by the summer.
Towards the end of 2015, YIMBY revealed initial renderings of the seven-story, 31-unit residential building planned at 610 Warren Street, in Boerum Hill, located six blocks south of the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center stop on the B/D/N/Q/R/2/3/4/5 trains. YIMBY now has an updated rendering of Adam America Real Estate’s new building, dubbed Six Ten Warren, which will encompass 47,050 square feet. Its condominium units should average 1,150 square feet apiece. The apartments will come in one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom configurations, and some of them will be duplexes and triplexes. Paris Forino Design is responsible for the interiors and Issac & Stern Architects is behind the overall design. Amenities will include a 645-square-foot rooftop terrace, a gym, a children’s playroom, private storage space, residential lounges, a parking garage, and bicycle storage. Construction is currently underway and completion can be expected in the spring of 2017.
Property owners Chris Sheller and interior designer Kate Gray have completely gut-renovated the two-story, single-family wood-framed townhouse at 34 Diker Street, in Red Hook. Brownstoner reports that practically the entire exterior and interior of the structure was rebuilt. The 1,700-square-foot structure has a new façade, new windows, expanded ceilings on the second floor, completely rebuilt and modernized interiors, and new appliances and furnishings. RGR Construction is the general contractor and Bronx-based Kevin Byrne served as the architect of record. The couple went to sell the property a few weeks ago.
Property owner Jin Yang has filed applications for two two-family residential buildings at 120-09 – 120-13 Ninth Avenue, located on the northern end of College Point. Both will stand two stories in height and will measure 3,579 square feet apiece. Within the entire development, the full-floor apartment units will spread across 4,773 square feet, which means they will individual measure a spacious 1,193 square feet each. Yuk Lam’s Fresh Meadows-based Lam Engineer is the applicant of record. The 7,467-square-foot plot of land is currently occupied by two-story house, with an address at 120-15 Ninth Avenue. Demolition permits were filed in January.
S.W. Management has acquired the vacant development site spanning 1179-1183 Second Avenue and 249-251 East 62nd Street, on the Upper East Side, for $64.3 million. According to Crain’s, the property lot at the corner of Second Avenue and East 62nd Street, at 253 East 62nd Street, is not included in the acquisition, although its former five-story predecessor was demolished just last year. The site that was newly acquired can accommodate 87,650 square feet of development potential as-of-right. A future building could include ground-floor retail space and residential units above. Plans for the site have not been disclosed. Sometime between 2009 and 2011, five tenement buildings ranging between three and five stories were demolished at the site.
