Staten Island may be New York City’s slowest-growing borough, but its two most accessible neighborhoods, Stapleton and St. George, are getting thousands of new apartments in the next few years. And now another development is about to join the residential boom in Stapleton. Applications were filed yesterday for a seven-story mixed-use building at 41 Prospect Street, on the corner of Bay Street.
Market-rate projects in the northern Bronx are generally pretty small, topping out at three or four stories and 10 or 12 units. But every once in a while, a market-rate builder snags a decent-sized lot with generous zoning in one of the neighborhoods near Bronx Park. Yesterday we spotted applications for one of these developments at 253 East 204th Street, between East Moshulu Parkway South and Grand Concourse in Bedford Park.
After two years in limbo, the city-owned Flatbush Caton Market may finally be redeveloped into affordable housing and a Caribbean business center. During a press conference this morning, the city’s Economic Development Corporation announced plans to demolish the brightly colored building at 794 Flatbush Avenue in Flatbush and replace it with 10 stories of affordable apartments.
Back in early 2014, YIMBY featured a first look at speculative plans for the redevelopment of the American Bible Society. That concept fell through, but we followed up with a post that included a prospective design by architects Goldstein Hill & West. Now, Skidmore Owings & Merrill has been tapped to design the project, and thanks to a tipster’s submission of diagrams for the project, we were able to create renderings that are a close approximation of what the building will ultimately look like.
In August, YIMBY revealed the first renderings for 532 Neptune Avenue, the 41-story residential tower set to replace Trump Village Shopping Center in Coney Island. Now we have a look at the retail portion of the development at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, which is across the street from the big development site at Neptune Avenue and West 6th Street.
