Back in September of 2014, YIMBY brought you an update on adjacent residential projects at 10 Bond Street and 372 Lafayette Street (a.k.a. 11 Great Jones Street), in NoHo. The former project, a seven-story, 11-unit condominium building, went on the to have construction completed by the end of the summer of 2015. Construction has since entirely wrapped up on the latter project, a six-story, eight-unit residential building, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The property is completely unobscured from scaffolding and occupancy is currently underway. The ground floor and cellar levels will contain 2,143 square feet of retail space. The eight rental apartments above measure between 1,300 and 2,000 square feet apiece, coming in two- and three-bedroom configurations, although some units appear to have been divided into multiple apartments. Kano Properties is the developer, and Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design.
Backhoes have just begun tearing up the earth to make way for a slim condo building at 42-44 Crescent Street in Long Island City. Now, YIMBY has snagged the first rendering of the project near Queensboro Plaza.
Foundations are complete for a residential building at 583 Lorimer Street in Brooklyn. The five-story, six-unit building rises just half a block north of the G and L subway stop at the intersection of Metropolitan Avenue and Lorimer Street.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has been filing applications since January of 2014 for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 1776 Broadway, and a three-story, two-unit residential building at 483 Marion Street, in Ocean Hill, located directly below the Chauncey Street stop on the J/Z trains. The new buildings will measure 6,201 and 3,205 square feet each, respectively, and the larger building will feature 1,240 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Across both buildings, there will be 6,124 square feet of residential space, which means the apartments should average a spacious 1,225 square feet apiece. The units could be new-construction family-sized condominiums, which would be unprecedented in this part of Brooklyn for this building cycle. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 3,342-square-foot lot is currently vacant.
Back in November of 2015, construction was well underway to restore the two-story, 3,000-square-foot former New York and Long Island Coignet Stone Company Building, also known simply as the Coignet Building, an individual landmark located at 360 Third Avenue, in Gowanus. Since then, construction of the new façade has finished and new windows have been installed. DNAinfo reports the project was also recently awarded the Lucy G. Preservation Moses Award by the New York Landmarks Conversancy. Whole Foods Market restored the exterior of the building and has placed the property on the market for $5 million. It could eventually be used as retail or community facility space, although the interiors still have to be gut-renovated. BL Companies is the applicant of record and Jablonski Building Conservation aided in the design process.
