It was nearly two and a half years ago that YIMBY last reported on permits and a rendering for 731 and 733 Bergen Street, in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Today, we have the first rendering of the project’s redesign, by Bizdesigns LLC. The new structure looks lighter, with tan panels on the two protruding sections and base, rather than dark brick, as well as paneled screens on the lower floors. The windows were also subject to changes, and the nine balconies will be colored black, instead of red.
Demolition permits have been filed for 308, 310, 312, and 314 East 86th Street, by 2nd Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, all by the same developer. The buildings are right next to the new 86th Street Subway Station, serviced by the Q train. The sites are owned by Izaki Group Investments, who were reported as purchasing three of the sites in March of 2017 for $42 million, from Extell Development, which purchased the sites in April of 2016.
