Ash Management has filed applications to renovate and expand the low-rise building assemblage spanning 947-955 Flatbush Avenue and 2-10 Snyder Avenue, in northern Flatbush, into a single three-story, 34,820 square-foot commercial building.

According to Brownstoner, Renaissance Realty Group’s two-story, 34,480 square-foot retail building has topped out at 252-260 Atlantic Avenue, in Boerum Hill. Dubbed Atlantic Galleria, TD Bank, Blink Fitness and Michaels have already signed leases, and opening is expected later this year. SBLM Architects is designing the project.
Since YIMBY last checked in on progress at 220 Central Park South and 217 West 57th Street, the latter building has been revealed in official renderings. But now we have an update on both sites from YIMBY reader ILNY, with the latest set of photos peeking into the projects from ground level.
Sopher Realty has filed applications for a single-story, 9,745 square-foot commercial-retail building spanning the lots at 1953-1965 University Avenue, in University Heights. Howell Belanger Castelli Architects is designing, and the existing single-story retail structure most recently passed pre-demolition inspection late in March. The site’s current structure was involved in a fire late last year, according to DNAinfo.
The Four Seasons Restaurant is a New York City icon within a New York City icon (the Seagram Building) and to say proposed changes to it were unwelcomed by the members of the Landmarks Preservation Commission would be the understatement of the week. The building, located at 375 Park Avenue / 99 East 52nd Street, was completed in 1958 and the restaurant opened one year later. They are the product of legendary architects Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson, along with the firm of Kahn & Jacobs. The restaurant is a symbol of New York’s power and greatness. Most of us will never dine there, but those who have consider its spaces basically sacred.
