Three Four-Story, Two-Unit Residential Buildings Coming to 2345-2351 West Street, Gravesend

Steven Scaba, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for three four-story, two-unit residential buildings at 2345-2351 West Street, in southern Gravesend. They will each measure 4,632 square feet. In all of them, there will be one apartment across the ground level and second floor, followed by a triplex apartment on the rest of the second floor and the entire third and fourth floors. Across the entire project, the apartments should average 1,770 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. The 8,000-square-foot assemblage is currently occupied by two single-story houses. Demolition permits were filed in July. The Avenue X stop on the F train is five blocks away.

Checking In On New York City’s 2020 Skyline

YIMBY has brought you several composite renderings of what the skyline will look like over the next few years. Now we have a fresh image of what the city’s future holds, thanks to YIMBY Forums user Thomas Koloski, which illustrates the major changes soon coming to Jersey City, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Most of the projects added to the image are either already under construction or imminently rising, and their collective impact on the cityscape will push the New York City skyline to new, Coruscantian heights.
