Not every building alteration is noteworthy, but when one in the city’s first historic district goes before the full Landmarks Preservation Commission and includes the restoration of a stoop, we’ll try to tell that story. Such is the case at 36 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn, where new work would take it from four apartments to single-family use.
Cammeby’s is building a massive mixed-use project next to the Trump Village co-ops on Coney Island. The development, called Neptune/Sixth, has grabbed headlines because it includes a 40-story residential tower that will eventually replace Trump Village Shopping Center. Today, YIMBY has the first detailed images of the 430-foot-tall skyscraper at 532 Neptune Avenue and its accompanying office and retail buildings.
A commercial building in SoHo is on its way to finding itself bigger than ever. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved restoration work and vertical additions to two-story-tall 558 Broadway.
After four years of delayed construction, financial missteps, and lawsuits, Forest City Ratner and Greenland U.S.A. are finally welcoming tenants into 461 Dean Street, currently the tallest skyscraper in the world constructed with modular units.

A year and a half ago, YIMBY spotted permits for a sizable mixed-use development that would replace a grocery store at 42-76 Main Street, on the southern edge of Flushing. Today, we have a look at the modern building on the corner of Blossom Avenue, which is being designed by InFocus Design and Planning.
