Boaz Gilad’s Brookland Capital is one of the most prolific small condo developers in Brooklyn, with projects under construction from the Williamsburg waterfront all the way down to East Flatbush. Now they’ve ventured away from Bed Stuy and Crown Heights and into more established condo territory with a development at 15th Street and 4th Avenue in Park Slope.
Two more applications have been filed that would replace another single-family structure in the neighborhood of Rego Park, and Laurelton, an even rarer vacant lot, in central and eastern Queens, respectively. The burgeoning demand for residential units makes it more attractive to redevelop lots that would otherwise remain single-family homes.
The property owner of the single-family home at 63-33 Alderton Street, in Rego Park, has filed applications for a two-story, two-family building measuring 2,405 square feet. The existing structure will be utilized and expanded upon during construction, and Chang Hwa Tan is designing.
An LLC has filed applications for six-story, 10-unit residential building measuring 8,820 square feet at 23-31 Astoria Boulevard, in western Astoria. Frank Petruso is designing, and each unit will average nearly 900 square feet. An existing three-story mixed-use building must first be demolished.
AVO Construction has filed applications for a four-story, single-family townhouse measuring 2,630 square feet at 282 North 6th Street, in Williamsburg. The developer also filed applications back in November for a very similar structure on the same plot of land at 65 Havemeyer Street; additional single-family townhouses can be expected. Schneider Associates is designing, and the existing single-story warehouse spanning 276-288 North 6th Street recently passed pre-demolition inspection.
In 2013, it was reported that WeWork was in talks for 500,000 square feet at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. YIMBY has now obtained plans for a new mixed-use structure on the site, which would host both a WeWork/WeLive, with the design coming from S9/Perkins Eastman.
