Property At 139 15th Street Prepares For Development, Gowanus

Property owner Salvatore Lombardi has filed demolition permits to remove the existing two-story, two-unit house at 139 15th Street, in southern Gowanus, two blocks north of the Prospect Avenue stop on the R train. The property could yield a new development of 6,164 square feet, and Brownstoner notes that applications were filed in 2011 for a five-story, eight-unit building. The site hasn’t changed hands since 2010, so plans for such a project may still be in the works.

Gotham Organization Acquires Development Site At 130 St. Felix Street, Fort Greene

Gotham Organization has acquired the vacant lot at 130 St. Felix Street, on the block immediately north of Atlantic Terminal in Fort Greene for $5.5 million. According to Brownstoner, the vacant property can accommodate a building of 75,114 square feet, and soil tests were done recently, which usually determines the type of foundation a new building will need. Details have not yet been released, and a new building would require approval from City Planning.

Three-Family Building Coming To 3000 Gerritsen Avenue, Gerritsen Beach

Aleksander Karasik, of Karasik Law Group, has filed applications to build a two-story, three-unit residential building on the vacant lots at 2998-3002 Gerritsen Avenue, in the largely single-family neighborhood of Gerritsen Beach. The building will measure 3,230 square feet in total, which means units should average 1,075 square feet. Hansa Building Engineering is the applicant of record, and the site’s former two-story home was demolished in 2010.

Revealed: 1290 Decatur Street, Bushwick

The eastern edge of Bushwick, where the L train swings above ground next to cemeteries, serves as the borderlands of gentrified Brooklyn, just before Broadway Junction and East New York. But that hasn’t stopped condo developers from flocking there, looking to take advantage of relatively cheap property. And today YIMBY has the first look at a four-story condo project under construction at 1290-1300 Decatur Street, between Knickerbocker and Wilson Avenue.
