11-Story, 44-Unit Mixed-Use Condo Building Tops Out At 613 Baltic Street, Park Slope

Since being five stories up roughly two months ago, the 11-story, 44-unit mixed-use building under development at 613 Baltic Street, in northern Park Slope, has now now topped out at 119 feet above street level. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo shot by Tectonic. The 83,154-square-foot project is being dubbed Baltic and its residential units will be condominiums. Those currently available come in two- and three-bedroom configurations. The average unit should measure 1,339 square feet. The ground floor will include 3,157 square feet of retail and 2,163 square feet of space for a community center. The known amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. JDS Development Group is the developer, while VOA Architecture is serving as the design architect. Completion is anticipated for 2017.

Four-Story, Nine-Unit Mixed-Use Building Filed at 37-15 103rd Street, North Corona

Queens-based property owner Choi Yui Chan has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 37-15 103rd Street, in North Corona. The structure will measure 13,500 square feet. The ground floor and cellar level will host 3,402 square feet of retail space, followed by three units per floor on the second through fourth. The residential units should average 820 square feet apiece, which means rental apartments are likely in the works. Smaller condominiums are also a possibility, especially if the developer is catering to the Chinese. Robert H. Lin’s Flushing-based A&T Engineering is the applicant of record. Earlier this year, the developer filed plans for two separate four-story, four-unit buildings, but they were later disapproved. The 5,000-square-foot assemblage consists of two townhouses. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The site is two blocks north of the 103rd Street-Corona Plaza stop on the 7 train.

Extell Expands Mixed-Use Development Assemblage at 350 East 86th Street, Upper East Side

After entering into contract nearly a year ago, Extell Development has closed on the purchase of the single-story, 128,250-square-foot Gristedes grocery store at 350 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side, for $93 million. The acquisition was funded with a $55 million mortgage, Commercial Observer reported. The developer also owns the neighboring four- and five-story tenement buildings at 1645-1651 First Avenue. Combined with the new acquisition, the 20,650-square-foot assemblage now supports 206,500 square feet of new mixed-use development up to 210 feet above street level. The developer is apparently planning a 20-story, 200-plus-unit condominium project at the site, although there aren’t many details on it. Demolition permits haven’t been filed for any of the Extell-owned properties, but Gristedes is expected to vacate the premises later this year.

23-Story, 120-Unit Mixed-Use Building Rises to 10th Floor at 56 Fulton Street, Financial District

Since rising above street level in March of 2016, the 23-story, 120-unit mixed-use project under development at 56 Fulton Street, on the corner of Cliff Street in the Financial District, has grown to 10 stories. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo taken by Tectonic. The 128,540-square-foot tower will eventually host 5,865 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 120 rental apartments, ranging from 450-square-foot studios to 1,250-square-foot two-bedrooms. Twenty percent of them, or 24 units, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Amenities include storage for 61 bikes, a fitness center, laundry facilities, a lounge, a dining room for events, a game room, and an outdoor terrace on the 23rd floor. The Parkland Group and Socius Development Group are the developers. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the design architect, with Andrés Escobar designing the interiors. Completion can probably be expected in early 2017.

Request for Proposals Launched for Mixed-Use Development at 107 Grand Avenue, Baldwin, Long Island

The Town of Hempstead’s Department of Planning & Economic Development has launched a request for proposals (RFP) to develop a five-acre assemblage of dilapidating properties located at the northwestern corner of Merrick Road and Grand Avenue, in Baldwin. That’s in Nassau County, on the South Shore of Long Island. The aim is for mixed-use project, consisting of commercial space and residential apartments, according to LI Herald. Public recreational space is also part of the vision. The current stretch of street is made of vacant lots, and a mix of underutilized, vacant, and dilapidating single- and two-story commercial buildings. There appears to be bipartisan support for a mixed-use development this time around after similar attempt to build there failed last decade.
