YIMBY has the scoop on a six-story mixed-use building coming to 625 Driggs Avenue, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The project is in one of the most active areas of the neighborhood. The Bedford Avenue Subway Station is five blocks away, which is the first stop in Brooklyn for the L train, and the East River waterfront is another five blocks to the west. Redsky Capital, whose business is a three-minute walk from the site, will be responsible for development.
Today YIMBY has the reveal for 111 Willow Avenue, an attractive new development coming to The Bronx’s booming Port Morris neighborhood, by Newman Design Architects. The industrial-inspired exterior takes influence from its surroundings. Residential and manufacturing buildings predominate in the vicinity, and the site is six blocks away from the Cypress Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 6 train.
Permits have been filed for an 11-story mid-rise residential building at 123 West 106th Street, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The project is situated three blocks from Central Park, and seven blocks from the famously massive yet unfinished Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine. The 1 train and the A, B, and C trains are all a few blocks away. CoSo Apartments will be responsible for the development.
It’s no longer just a rendering; the 54-story Eagle Electric Factory’s redevelopment at 43-22 Queens Street almost has its full façade, as construction nears the finish line. YIMBY last reported on the project one year ago, when construction had reached the 18th floor. Now, the tower isn’t far off from releasing its 790 new rental apartments, which average 763 square feet apiece. Rockrose Development is responsible for development.
YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new 25-story development at 50 West 66th Street back in 2015. But since then, the site has seen a dramatic expansion. The Real Deal reports that the developer, Extell, has now acquired approximately 201,000 square feet of additional air rights for $202 million, and renderings have been released of the revised plans for the tower, by Snohetta, which indicate it will one-up 200 Amsterdam Avenue to become the tallest tower on the Upper West Side.
