Property owner Mario Del Brun has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 1027 Nelson Avenue, in Highbridge, located six blocks from the 4 train’s stop at 161st Street/Yankee Stadium. The building will rise on a small, 19-foot-wide vacant lot and will measure just 3,083 square feet, which translates into average units of 771 square feet each. Bakhtiar Sahmloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Design Group is the applicant of record.
Brooklyn-based Lev J Management has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 703 Lafayette Avenue, in central Bedford-Stuyvesant, located three blocks east of the Nostrand Avenue stop on the G train. The building will measure 5,957 square feet, which means units will average 745 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. The project will include a fifth-floor penthouse, rooftop space, and mezzanine levels on the lower floors. IMC Architecture is the architect of record, and permits were filed in August to demolish the existing two-story townhouse.
After nearly a decade of anticipation, false starts and design changes, 855 6th Avenue is nearing completion. The 479-foot-tall tower has finally taken its place on the burgeoning Midtown South skyline, and upon completion it will fill the missing link between Herald Square to the north and the hybrid Chelsea/NoMad district to the south. The Durst Organization is developing the 41 story mixed-use project, which consists of significant residential, retail, and office components.
With the soon-to-be 777-foot-tall 45 East 22nd Street now climbing quickly into the Flatiron District’s skyline, YIMBY sat down with developer Bruce Eichner to discuss the building’s progress, the surrounding neighborhood’s rapid evolution, as well as what else might be on the horizon for Continuum. YIMBY in bold.
Property owner Yair Bohadana, operating as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, four-unit residential buildings at 152 Sackman Street and 2441 Dean Street, in Ocean Hill, located five blocks south of the J, Z, L, A, and C trains, as well as the East New York LIRR station. Combined, the buildings will total 6,166 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 771 square feet. Bakhtiar Shamloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Group Design is the architect of record, and the site’s two-story predecessor was demolished by the HDP in 2005.
