After our first look at Morris Adjmi’s submission to the Landmark Preservation Commission for 419 Broadway back in October, the SoHo building has been approved following a redesign. The accepted proposal has seen a height reduction, as well as a change to the bulkhead.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 1663 East New York Avenue, in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The project would replace an undeveloped lot used for glass and car repairs. The Broadway Junction Subway Stations are seven blocks away, serviced by the A, C, J, L, M, and Z trains. The East New York Train Station is four blocks away, serviced by the Long Island Railroad. Like Minded People LLC, based in Forest Hills, Queens, is responsible for development.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 332 East 28th Street, at the edge of East Flatbush and Flatbush-Ditmas Park, in Brooklyn. The site is six blocks away from the Beverly Road/Nostrand Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The nearest commercial avenue, Flatbush Avenue, is eight blocks away. David Azour will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a three-story residential building at 1565 East 9th Street, in Midwood, Brooklyn. The development will rise eleven blocks from the Kings Highway Subway Station, serviced by the B and Q trains, and twelve blocks away from the Avenue P Subway Station, serviced by the F train. The closest major commercial thoroughfare, Coney Island Avenue, is three blocks away. Jack Braha will be responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a 312,880 square foot mixed-use building at 1755 Watson Avenue in Soundview, Bronx. The project was made possible after the site was rezoned from R5 to R7A. R5 zoning allows for a floor area ration (FAR) development of 1.25, which would typically produce a three or four-story attached house. R7A zoning allows for 4.0 FAR, and a maximum height limit of 85 feet, the exact height of this new building. Azimuth Development Group is responsible for the development.
