While part of the Broadway Triangle is still tied up in a hotly contested debate over rezoning and racial politics, developers are quickly moving to build on the remaining lots in the former industrial ‘hood at Williamsburg’s southern edge, like 221 Middleton Street, where plans were just filed to construct a six-story apartment building.
Just about one year ago, YIMBY reported on permits for a new six-story residential building at 75 Ralph Avenue, in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy. Now, we can reveal the project, which will be surprisingly attractive; Charles Mallea is the architect, and Solomon Feder of 75 Ralph LLC is the developer.
YIMBY found this schematic on the fence at 44 Kent Street near the waterfront in Greenpoint, where construction recently began on a six-story building. It will rise 70 feet into the air on an empty, block-long lot on West Street between Kent and Greenpoint Avenue, a few hundred feet from the East River.
Last December, renderings of plans for the site at 42 Trinity Place surfaced, with a design by FX Fowle. They came with news that the site could accommodate a 300,000 square foot as-of-right project. But YIMBY has now learned that the site may end up with a building in excess of one million square feet, for which we now have the first preliminary renderings.
The Rabksy Group is planning a six-story apartment building at 26 West Street, in Greenpoint. The ubiquitous architect Karl Fischer filed plans for the project in September, and now YIMBY has the site’s first rendering.
