YIMBY has noticed all kinds of interesting conversions in the industrial area between Morgan Avenue and Jefferson Avenue in Buswhick, where restrictive zoning and rising rents have led landlords to consider transforming old warehouses into night clubs and artist studios. But today we spotted unusual plans for a theater conversion at 383 Troutman Street, in the part of the neighborhood defined by its colorful street art and a growing stretch of bars and restaurants.
Earlier this year, YIMBY brought you a proposal for the transformation of One Wall Street created by CetraRuddy. While that version of the tower will remain unbuilt, we now have the first rendering of actual plans, created by Robert A.M. Stern for developer Macklowe Properties, as well as word that the development is seeking $100 million in EB-5 funding, or 6.6% of its projected cost of $1.502 billion.
The condo-fication of 14th Street continues with 209 West 14th Street, where a four-story building has just been demolished to make way for eleven stories of apartments. A YIMBY reader sent along photos of a new rendering posted on the construction fence between Seventh and Eighth Avenues last week.
One of the last under-developed plots on Williamsburg’s pricey Northside is about to grow a six-story building. Builder Moshe Braver has decided to expand a mid-century brick warehouse at 286 Wythe Avenue, on the corner of North 1st Street, into a 70-foot-tall mixed-use development.
Back in March, YIMBY posted the first rendering for a new development coming to 245 Manhattan Avenue, in Williamsburg. And now, a tipster has sent along a new set of images for the 5-story project, which is being designed by Mortar Architecture + Development.
