Back in 2015, YIMBY reported that the Stagg Group had filed new building applications for 2051 Ryer Avenue, in the West Bronx. Since then, the site went onto the market asking $1.45 million, and has evidently traded hands to Hercules Argyriou, of Ryer Avenue MM LLC/Mega Contracting Inc., which has filed new applications for a structure that is about 50% larger than the original. The building will rise 12 floors (as opposed to 13 previously), and total 66,615 square feet of residential space, to be divided between 86 apartments. That translates into an average unit of about 770 square feet, indicative of rentals. SLCE Architects is designing, and demolition permits for the site’s former occupant were filed in June of 2015.
The revitalization of Crown Heights continues apace, and now new building applications have been filed for a site spanning 998-1000 Union Street, one block south of the Franklin Avenue stop on the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. The development will rise seven floors and total 23,569 square feet, to be split between 20 apartments. With a generous average size of almost 1,200 square feet, that likely portends condominiums. Fariba Makooi of Fariba Makooi Architects PLLC is listed as the site’s architect, although the contact information points to Karl Fischer, and the project is being developed by Gal Nagar of HML Developments. Demolition permits for the existing structure were filed in July.
YIMBY recently revealed the latest images for 125 Greenwich Street, which has continued to see minor modifications to its design. Though the tower’s foundation work has been completed for about two years, the site has sat fallow while searching for financing. The refreshed renderings came with recent news that the project secured a $450 million construction loan, and now, with financing secured and the plans for the building finalized, rebar is finally rising.
Back in February of 2016, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 22-12 Jackson Avenue, in Long Island City. The lot’s former occupant has since been demolished, and now excavators are beginning to dig away at the site, which will imminently host an 11-story and 175-unit condominium development, designed by ODA New York.
YIMBY has revealed two major projects coming to East New York in the past few months, on Loring Avenue and at 3301 Atlantic Avenue. While those developments will transform entire blocks, other smaller lots are now joining the neighborhood’s boom. Now, new job applications have been filed for a substantial project at 820 Glenmore Avenue, one block northeast of the C train’s Shepherd Avenue stop, totaling 77 units.
