It was back in May of 2015 that YIMBY brought you a new rendering of the 21-story mixed-use development at the corner of Schermerhorn and Nevins streets in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, thanks to photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, we can report that 319 Schermerhorn Street’s construction has nearly reached the half way mark.

Last week, Brownstoner brought us a construction update on the seven-story, 74-unit residential redevelopment at 51 Jay Street, in DUMBO, and now YIMBY can announce the expansion project has officially topped out. Its residential units average 1,815 square feet apiece and have commanded one of the highest price per-square-foot figures in the neighborhood, selling at $2,083 per-square-foot. The building is nearly 75 percent sold, as reported earlier, and move-ins are expected sometime next summer or fall. Residents will have a slew of amenities available to them, and 1,333 square feet of retail space is planned on the ground floor. Slate Property Group and Adam America Real Estate are the developers, while ODA Architecture designed the project.
This past summer, steel beam construction began on the 12-story, 38-unit condo building planned at 100 Norfolk Street, on the Lower East Side, but the project ended up stalling out for a number of months until crews recently were able to get back on site. The structure is now rising again and currently four stories up, courtesy of photos by Tectonic. The 53,949 square-foot structure includes 11,244 square feet of commercial space, which was marketed as two units. Five residential units remain for sale and completion is expected in late 2016. ODA Architecture is designing and Adam America Real Estate, Naveh Shuster Group, and Horizon Group are developing.
In July, Adam America Real Estate and Slate Property Group were in contract to acquire the development assemblage at 8-16 Nevins Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, and now the team has closed on the purchase, according to Crain’s. The developers paid $47.75 million for the site, and Vanke, a Chinese developer, is partnering to build a 33-story, 150-unit residential building. The tower will total 180,000 square feet, and retail space is also likely planned. Construction is expected to begin early next year, although multiple low-rise buildings must first be demolished.
Late last winter, Slate Property Group and Adam America Real Estate began excavation on their planned 11-story, 78-unit rental building at 275 Fourth Avenue/251 1st Street, in Park Slope, located four blocks south of the Union Street stop on the R train. But now, the developers are turning the residential project into 44 condominiums. Ground-floor retail and health care spaces are still planned, which will measure 4,476 and 300 square feet, respectively. ODA Architecture is designing, and sales are expected to launch in early 2016.
