Nearly a year ago, a new look was revealed for an Upper West Side development. Now, construction is well underway and YIMBY has the latest renderings for 207 West 75th Street.
New development rarely happens in Riverdale, a northwestern Bronx neighborhood where low-density zoning has protected wealthy areas full of single-family homes. But new, mid-rise buildings are allowed on several blocks along the Henry Hudson Parkway. A developer hopes to build on one such project at 3641 Johnson Avenue.
Brownsville, in eastern Brooklyn, is one of the few places in the five boroughs where the city still owns plenty of vacant lots. One of those properties is about to be put to good use as supportive housing. The city has filed plans for an eight-story, 71-unit development at 214 Hegeman Avenue, at the southern edge of Brownsville near Canarsie.
The city of New York has two new individual landmarks. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to designate the buildings at 181 Montague Street and 185 Montague Street in Brooklyn. The move extended the preservation of the borough’s banking history.
The New York City Department of Design and Construction has filed plans for a Bjarke Ingels-designed police station in the South Bronx that’s expected to cost $50 million.
