Things are moving along swiftly at a new hotel in Brooklyn. Construction is complete on the 23-story, 250-foot-tall mixed-use building — which YIMBY has been chronicling the construction of since its superstructure began to rise in early 2015 — at 55 Wythe Avenue, located between North 12th and 13th streets in northern Williamsburg. The 183-key boutique hotel, dubbed The William Vale, is expected to open later this month, Curbed NY reported. The hotel rooms will be located on the 11th through 21st floors. The 248,000-square-foot structure boasts 19,257 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, followed by 35,678 square feet of medical office space on the fifth through ninth floors. The complex will be accommodated by a 210-car parking garage, a pedestrian plaza, a slew of amenities on the second through fourth floors, a restaurant on the 22nd and 23rd floors, and a 15,000-square-foot roof terrace. Zelig Weiss and Riverside Developers co-developed the project, and Aldo Liberis served as the design architect. The Nassau Avenue stop on the G train is seven blocks away.
Construction has been completed on the six-story, 93-unit mixed-use building at 21 Commercial Street, in northern Greenpoint. The update is possible thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, officially dubbed 7 Bell Slip, encompasses 88,706 square feet. It will include 2,557 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units on the floors above, 92 of which will rent at below-market-rates through the affordable housing lottery. The apartments will range from studios to two-bedrooms and should average 887 square feet apiece. Amenities include laundry facilities, storage for 47 bikes, and a fitness center. The project is being built as part of the 10-building, 5,500-unit mixed-use mega-development Greenpoint Landing. Park Tower Group and L+M Development Partners developed 21 Commercial Street, and Handel Architects designed it.
The Mann Group is currently converting the three-story, 35,000-square-foot former industrial building at 199 Cook Street, on the southern end of East Williamsburg, into a mixed-use commercial building, Commercial Observer reports. The ground floor will host retail space, followed by office space on part of the cellar level and the entire second and third floors. Additionally, a 3,000-square-foot restaurant will be located in the cellar. The commercial spaces will break down into five artist’s galleries and 28 office units. The structure will be topped by a rooftop lounge. Syndicate Architecture is behind the conversion’s design and completion is expected in early 2017. The property was acquired for $6 million in 2013.
The Asian Americans for Equality Community Development Fund (AAFE CDF) has filed applications for a seven-story, 88,749-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 133-04 39th Avenue, located at the corner of College Point Boulevard in downtown Flushing. The new building will feature retail space on the ground floor, followed by 18,142 square feet of non-profit community facility space on the second, third, and fifth floors, and office space on the fourth, sixth, and seventh floors. The retail and office space will add up to 42,986 square feet. A 72-car parking garage will be located underground. Midtown East-based JCJ Architecture is the architect of record. The 13,388-square-foot property is currently occupied by a single-story commercial building. Demolition permits were filed in April. The Flushing-Main Street stop on the 7 train is two blocks away.
Since standing four stories in height back in May, the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use complex under development at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street, in Greenpoint, has grown 12 stories, as seen in photos taken earlier this month by NY Construction Photography. The main tower will eventually climb to 392 feet above street level, with the entire complex to measure 716,982 square feet. There will be 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail and 3,802 square feet of medical offices. The floors above will host the residential units, averaging 894 square feet apiece, of which 20 percent (128 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises are the developers. Ismael Leyva Architects is behind the design and completion is expected by 2018.
