41-21 28th Street has risen to its third level, on its way to its final height of 185 feet. The project, developed by All Year Management, will house 166 residential units spread across 126,718 square feet.
YIMBY last checked in on 333 Schermerhorn Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, back in September, and since then the structure has grown rapidly, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports. The 56-story, 750-unit mixed-use tower is only weeks from topping out, with just five floors to go, and façade work can also be seen wrapping around the lower portion of the skyscraper. Upon completion, it will be (temporarily) the tallest building in Brooklyn, standing 610 feet above street level. Of the residential units, 150 of them will be set aside as affordable housing and 34,823 square feet of retail space is planned. Douglas Steiner is developing, Dattner Architects is designing, and move-ins are expected in mid-2016.
The existing building has been completely demolished at 11-51 47th Avenue on the southern tip of Long Island City, clearing the way for the 11-story condominium tower that will house 56 units and rise 125 feet.
The residential redevelopment of the former three-story, 81,805 square-foot manufacturing building at 51 Jay Street, in Dumbo, has topped out, according to Brownstoner. The structure has been transformed into a seven-story building and now measures 135,658 square feet. Seventy-four condominiums units will spread across the majority of the building, measuring an average 1,815 square feet apiece, and 1,333 square feet of ground-floor retail is planned. The project includes six separate penthouses and is currently 75 percent sold with move-ins expected in mid-2016. Slate Property Group is developing is ODA Architecture is the design architect.
Slate Property Group and RWN Real Estate have acquired the 10-story, 33-unit apartment building at 144 East 24th Street, in Kips Bay, for $29 million. The 40,000 square-foot structure will be renovated and reconfigured into a 42-unit property with smaller apartments, likely to accommodate the neighborhood’s growing student population. The small ground-floor retail space will also be expanded. It is currently occupied by Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices, according to The Real Deal.
