375 Stuyvesant Avenue

Permits Filed for 375 Stuyvesant Avenue, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn

Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy doesn’t always see the best executions of infill development, but new filings for 375 Stuyvesant Avenue will hopefully provide an example for others to follow. DXA Studio applied for the permits, indicating the new building should be both innovative and attractive, and Oren Evenhar of Pinestone Greene LLC is listed as the developer. The structure will rise five floors and have 7,386 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst seven units. With a design-minded architect and an average unit size of over 1,000 square feet, condominiums would appear likely. An existing building on the site is landmarked, though there appears to be ample room to accommodate the new structure, which has yet to be reviewed by the LPC.

45 Park Place Gets Ready to Rise, Tribeca

One block west of Downtown’s tallest residential building at 30 Park Place, another condominium tower is finally getting ready to rise. YIMBY reported on 45 Park Place’s initial building applications back in May of 2014, but it has taken three years to navigate both planning and financing. Now, foundation work is making headway, signaling the skyscraper should begin its ascent within the next few months.

401 West Street

Permits Filed for 401 West Street, West Village

Back in 2013, Curbed reported that Sandy’s damage had been sufficient to bulldoze an existing structure at 401 West Street, on the western edge of the West Village. Now, new building applications have been filed for the site by Hill West Architects, for a seven-story and 11-unit project totaling almost 15,000 square feet of residential space. That will translate into an average unit size of almost 1,400 square feet, which is almost a sure sign of condominiums. Denis Astakhov of 401 West Property Owner LLC is listed as the developer (aka Galahad Advisers).
