Anbau Enterprises is officially moving forward on 41 West 23rd Street, in Chelsea, over three years after the site’s re-design passed the Landmark Preservation Commission. Located half a block away from the Flatiron Building and less than two avenues away from four different subway stations on 23rd Street, the lot has been expected to yield something interesting for about a decade, which means actual progress is very welcome.
Jersey City’s ongoing development boom has chiefly been focused along the waterfront, but the tendrils of new construction have also started to wrap their way across increasingly distant swaths of the city, including 485 Marin Boulevard, in Hamilton Park. There, HWKN has designed an 18-story and 397-unit rental development for KRE Group, which is now almost complete.
A five-story residential building is nearing completion at 225 14th Street, in Park Slope, Brooklyn, by the border of Gowanus. The site is five blocks away from the D, N, R, and W trains. Harel Edrey of EDG Development is responsible for the development, and the same firm is also working on the design.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 150-16 Hillside Avenue in Jamaica, Queens. The site is two blocks from Parsons Boulevard, serviced by the E and F trains, and the Jamaica Center subway station is seven blocks away, serviced by the E, J, and Z trains. Muhammad S Alam is behind the applications.
New renderings are out for the conversion and expansion of the old church at 120 Java Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and YIMBY has the exclusive close-ups. The project is located just three blocks away from the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G trains. The existing structure had functioned as the parish hall for a nearby Episcopal church, Church of the Ascension. Developer Chris Horrigan, of Horrigan Companies, purchased the site in July of 2015 for $4,050,000, along with air rights from the church’s place of worship at 127 Kent Street. The building had been used as a relief spot during Hurricane Sandy. The project has since passed hands, and now SL Development is leading its dramatic transformation and residential rebirth.
