Back in September, YIMBY reported on the first permits for 239 Tenth Avenue, a new building which is being developed by Victor Homes and Michael Shvo. Renderings were glimpsed previously, but we now have the full reveal for the 12-story building, which will have only eight condominiums.
The pricey Oosten condo development has topped out with seven stories at 429 Kent Avenue in South Williamsburg, and workers have begun installing glassy facades on the building’s north side, along South 8th Street.
YIMBY brought you news of applications filed for a three-story, 19-unit residential building at 265 Van Brunt Street, in Red Hook, in March of 2014, and now Brownstoner has spotted the first renderings posted on site. Designed by OCV Architects, the building will actually be raised due to flooding concerns, and will appear as a four-story structure. The rental project is being developed by Cheever Development, and the site’s single-story predecessors have been demolished.
On the southern end of Williamsburg’s waterfront, a three-story commercial property at 484 Kent Avenue is about to hit the market as a development site, boasting 500,000 square feet of residential air rights. In 2011, the property was granted a zoning change to allow for three towers totaling 800 residential units, 30% of which would be affordable. Per Crain’s Business, HFZ Capital Group is interested in the property; the site is suspected to be valued north of $250 million.
Filed during the turn of the building code in 2014, more applications have been filed for a planned eight-story, 27-unit apartment building at 640 West 238th Street, in the southern, denser area of Riverdale. The building will have 20,205 square feet of residential space, and Shahriar Afshari is designing. The existing two-story, single-family structure passed pre-demolition inspection earlier this month.
