YIMBY happened to pass by Pitkin Avenue in East New York over the weekend, and noticed a collection of townhouses nearing the finish line at 402-424 Shepherd Avenue, right next to the Shepherd Avenue C train stop.
While two megaprojects, Astoria Cove and Hallets Point, inch toward reality in western Astoria, smaller developers have begun to eye the little peninsula that juts out into the East River, just south of Astoria Park. One such builder, Dr. Baldhevai Patel, hopes to build a six-story mixed-use development at 23-36 4th Street, between 26th and 27th Avenues.
In June, we unveiled some glassy renderings for 88-92 Linden Boulevard in Flatbush, and now the developer, Boaz Gilad, has filed new building applications for the nine-story development.
Back in December, YIMBY reported that an LLC filed applications for a new development at 440 Washington Street, in Tribeca. And now, we have the first renderings of the residential project, which is being developed by Ponte Equities and designed by OCV Architects.
Back in May, a developer filed plans to convert a warehouse into a nightclub at 599 Johnson Avenue, on the western edge of Bushwick’s industrial business zone. Now we have the first look at the warehouse’s transformation, which will liven up a pretty dead commercial block between Scott and Gardner Avenues.
