An anonymous LLC has filed permits for a three-story house in Jamaica Estates, Queens. The lot is a mile and a half away from the Hollis train station, serviced by the Long Island Railroad’s Hempstead and Oyster Bay lines. Jamaica Estates is an upper-middle-class neighborhood known for having expensive detached single-family homes with unique architectural styles, surrounded by trees.
Alloy Development’s plans for 80 Flatbush Avenue will eventually yield two residential towers, the larger of which will extend 74 floors and 920 feet into the Downtown Brooklyn skyline. But before construction can begin, the developers covered the existing structures in a mural starting back in September. Now, work on the art piece has wrapped up, as seen in the latest photos of the site from Tectonic.
Another new opportunity for developers is coming to Brooklyn. The lot at 137 Carlton Avenue, in Fort Greene, is hitting the market, with TerraCRG asking for $2,795,000. The site currently holds 2,925 square feet and could be expanded to be as large as 9,500 buildable square feet.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 28 Herbert Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The development comes at the neighborhood border with Greenpoint, and will be just a few blocks away from Monsignor McGolrick Park. The site is just a third of a mile from the Graham Street station, serviced by the L train. An anonymous LLC will be responsible for the development.
Last week, YIMBY reported on construction accelerating at 125 Greenwich Street, located kitty-corner from the World Trade Center site, in the heart of the Financial District. Today, we have another set of fresh renderings for the imminently 912-foot-tall tower, thanks to Bizzi & Partners, one of its developers. While it won’t stand anywhere near heights that were initially expected, it will still make quite an impact on the Downtown skyline.
