Developer Mordechai Kohn has submitted pre-filings for a four-story residential building at 1259 51st Street, in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The area is predominantly residential, with most buildings along the avenues containing commercial-retail space on ground floor. The site is three blocks away from the 50th Street Subway Station, serviced by the D train.
JDS Development and Property Markets Group’s 111 West 57th Street has been making substantial progress since YIMBY last checked in on the site back in August, and the soon-to-be 1,428-foot-tall tiwer continues to climb into the Midtown skyline. Glass curtain wall installation is now clearly visible and climbing on the southern side, and the supertall’s distinct terracotta and copper facade is also making major progress along the eastern face, which can be seen from street level.
Renderings have been revealed for a five-story residential building proposed for 514 Halsey Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The surrounding area is almost exclusively residential, with a few small commercial locations dotting the avenues nearby. The site is eight blocks away from the Utica Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the A and C trains. The project was put before the Brooklyn Community Board Landmarks Meeting earlier this month, and Romel Salam will be responsible for development.
Renderings for a new six-story affordable-housing project have been revealed at 960 Simpson Street, in The Bronx’s Hunts Point neighborhood. YIMBY last reported on the development in February of 2016. The site is just a block away from the Simpson Street Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The lot is located within a small commercial center, spreading over four blocks. Properties Resources Corporation will be responsible for the development.
Renderings reveal updated design by T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects of 300 Kenmore Road in the landmark neighborhood of Douglaston, Queens. YIMBY reported on the project proposal in January of this year. The project replaces a two-story garage building that was converted to an apartment. Douglaston is an upper-middle-class residential neighborhood recognized as an NYC Historic District in 2004.
