New building applications have been filed for a small site at 303 23rd Street, in Brooklyn’s Greenwood neighborhood. An existing one-story garage must first be demolished, and the permits list the replacement’s size at four floors and a total area of 7,419 square feet. The usable residential space will total 5,829 square feet, which will be divided between four units, for a generous average size of almost 1,500 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Douglas Pulaski of Bricolage Designs is the architect of record, and Anthony Devito of 75 Bay 17th Street, LLC, is listed as the developer.
Related’s Hudson Yards development is one of the most impressive construction projects in the history of New York City, and an armada of cranes currently dominates the Midtown West skyline as towers at 15, 30, 35, and 55 Hudson Yards continue to rise. Now, YIMBY has the latest details for the office behemoth that will soon be coming to 50 Hudson Yards, as well as news on what’s happening at the Western Railyards, which will add further to the neighborhood’s burgeoning forest of skyscrapers.
As the Lower Lower East Side continues to see additional proposals for new supertall towers, the neighborhood’s first legitimate skyscraper is approaching its topping-out, per the latest from Tectonic. Extell’s tower at 252 South Street, aka One Manhattan Square, is about ten floors away from its uppermost 72nd floor, which will stand 850 feet above the streets down below.
On the southern edge of Brooklyn’s Cypress Hills neighborhood, just above the blocks constituting East New York and Brownsville, an under-utilized lot at 2718 Fulton Street is about to be redeveloped with a new hotel. Building applications for the site were filed by Michael Kang Architect, P.C., and show a new structure rising ten floors and totaling 29,694 square feet of commercial space. That will be divided between 100 rooms, for a fairly small average size of only 296 square feet. The location is very atypical for hotel development, possibly indicating it may become a homeless shelter after completion, as has occurred in similarly-sited projects in other Outer Borough neighborhoods. Nehalkumar Gandhi of 2722 Fulton LLC is listed as the developer, and the lot lies two blocks west of the J and Z train stop at Van Siclen Avenue.
A 2.5-story home in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach neighborhood is about to bite the dust, with new building applications now filed for its six-story replacement, at 3022 Brighton 14th Street. The first four floors of the mixed-use structure will have a school, while the fifth, sixth, and penthouse levels will be occupied by an ambulatory diagnostic/treatment center. The total area is set to comprise just shy of 24,000 square feet. Ruslan Goychayev of RSLN Architecture PLLC is designing, and Igor Zagranichny of 1123 Ocean View LLC is the developer.
