YIMBY previously posted renderings of a tentative redesign and redevelopment set for the Macy’s store in Downtown Brooklyn, and now we have another submission from the project’s competition, though evidently this creation was not selected. The design comes from Leeser Architecture and would have featured two residential towers in addition to new and revamped retail space.
As development in Brooklyn pushes further east, apartment buildings are slowly filling the sleepy triangular piece of Bed Stuy known as Ocean Hill, near Broadway Junction in East New York. A tipster has sent YIMBY a rendering for one such development, a 32-unit building at 1325 Herkimer Street.
The Bedford-Nostrand G train stop is ground zero for new construction in Bed Stuy, and yesterday, plans were filed to construct a six-story building a few blocks to the east at 253 Tompkins Avenue, across the street from Herbert Von King Park.
Brookland Capital has filed applications for a six-story, 14-unit residential building at the vacant lot of 227 Clarkson Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a two minute walk from the Winthrop stop serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure roughly 10,000 square feet, which translates to units averaging 715 square feet; surprisingly, they will be condominiums. The site was acquired for $1.35 million earlier this year, according to DNAinfo, and Feingold & Gregory Architects is designing.
Helm Equities Cooper LLC has placed their single-story retail building at 85-95 Cooper Street, in Inwood, on the market for $4.25 million, according to DNAinfo. GFI Realty Services is marketing the site, which boasts 13,132 square feet of development potential, the equivalent of a seven-story building on the property.
