An anonymous corporation has filed permits for a new six-story residential building in East Flatbush, at 1622 New York Avenue. The location is just four blocks away from the Flatbush Avenue Station, which is the end of the line for the 2 and 5 trains. The stop is central to a busy retail area next to the Brooklyn College campus.
The piecemeal redevelopment of the Brooklyn waterfront has taken another substantial step forward, as Two Trees’ new building at 325 Kent Avenue is now complete.

Today YIMBY has the latest on RXR’s imminent opening of Atlantic Station in Downtown Stamford, Connecticut, but that isn’t the only news out of the city. Yesterday was the groundbreaking event for yet another new rental, by Urban Ready Living ( i.e. URBY), which will be building its fourth iteration, following others in Staten Island, Jersey City, and Harrison, NJ. The development occupies a 4.3-acre lot, and is being built by Ironstate Development Co., in a joint venture partnership with Brookfield Property Group. Stamford Mayor David Martin also participated in the event, and expressed joy for finally filling the space he referred to as the infamous “hole in the ground.”
Back in July of 2014, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 4261 Park Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. Now, the COOKFOX-designed project, dubbed Park House, is ready to open with an official address of 4275 Park Avenue.
Jersey City‘s soon-to-be-tallest skyscraper at 99 Hudson Street has had a fairly speedy rise into the skyline following its ground-breaking back in January of 2016. YIMBY last checked in on the project in August of last year, when foundation work had just begun, and since then, the building has sprouted well above ground. Now, the tower is rising above the garage and retail portion, and facade installation has also begun.
