A new four-story residential building is coming to 718 Bushwick Avenue, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of East Williamsburg. Permits were filed last week for the ground-up, 46-foot-tall structure, which will contain eight units and be constructed with a masonry system on the 1,874 square foot lot. The building itself will measure just under 5,600 square feet, and is being designed by Robert Bianchini of Arc Architecture + Design Studio. The developer of the project is James Best of 718 Bushwick Ave, LLC.
YIMBY’s recent reportage on a new wave of failed development sites has yet another likely addition. Renderings for the new look of 131-141 East 47th Street were revealed by YIMBY back in April of 2016, and since then, the site for the 49-story, 122-unit residential tower has been cleared of the previously extant structures. However, over two years post-demolition, work has appeared to come to a grinding halt, with no subsequent progress yet visible. The project is being developed by New Empire Real Estate, with SLCE Architects leading design, with the Chinese crackdown on capital outflows a likely explanation for the apparent pause in construction.
New construction permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 105 Rogers Avenue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the Park Place subway station, serviced by the S train and six blocks away from the Franklin Avenue station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines. Shahram Mobasser of Bellingham Estates 26 is listed as the owner on the applications, and today YIMBY also has a first look at renderings, with design by Z Architecture.
