Renderings have been revealed for an eight-story affordable housing project at 1000 Fox Street, in The Bronx’s Hunts Point neighborhood. The development is a block away from the Simpson Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Also nearby is Southern Boulevard, lined with commercial retail space. Briarwood Organization is responsible the development, and YIMBY first reported on the site when permits were initially filed back in February of 2016.
Permits have been filed for a 19-story residential building at 159 Boerum Street, in Williamsburg, which would be among the tallest buildings in the area. The site is three blocks away from The Montrose Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the L train, and Slate Property Group will be responsible for development.
An anonymous LLC has filed permits for a three-story house in Jamaica Estates, Queens. The lot is a mile and a half away from the Hollis train station, serviced by the Long Island Railroad’s Hempstead and Oyster Bay lines. Jamaica Estates is an upper-middle-class neighborhood known for having expensive detached single-family homes with unique architectural styles, surrounded by trees.
Alloy Development’s plans for 80 Flatbush Avenue will eventually yield two residential towers, the larger of which will extend 74 floors and 920 feet into the Downtown Brooklyn skyline. But before construction can begin, the developers covered the existing structures in a mural starting back in September. Now, work on the art piece has wrapped up, as seen in the latest photos of the site from Tectonic.
Another new opportunity for developers is coming to Brooklyn. The lot at 137 Carlton Avenue, in Fort Greene, is hitting the market, with TerraCRG asking for $2,795,000. The site currently holds 2,925 square feet and could be expanded to be as large as 9,500 buildable square feet.
