Construction is wrapping up on the exterior of the 51-story, 585-unit mixed-use project under development at 250 Ashland Place, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. That’s at the corner of Fulton Street in the BAM Cultural District. The progress can be seen in photos supplied to YIMBY by photographer Tectonic.
Most development on the Northside of Williamsburg consists of glassy new buildings, but every once in a while, someone converts a pre-war structure instead of tearing it down. Today, YIMBY has a look at 119-123 Kent Avenue, where three century-old townhouses will expand and get a new, brick facade that stretches across all of them.
Central Harlem is soon going to have one fewer vacant lot. Developer Rafael Santandreu hopes to build a nine-story, mixed-use building at the corner of 135th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, next to the 135th Street stop on the B and C trains.
For years, YIMBY has been reporting on plans for a high-rise residential tower at 118 Fulton Street, between Nassau and Dutch streets in the Financial District. No building exists yet, but the design has apparently changed again, per on-site renderings posted to the YIMBY Forums.
Yesterday, we told you about a hotel coming to a commercially zoned patch of western Crown Heights. Now, YIMBY has spotted plans for another hotel in the midst of a residential area, but this one is headed for the border between Ocean Hill and Brownsville in eastern Brooklyn. Developer Nehalkumar Gandhi has filed building applications for a six-story hotel at 1668 Eastern Parkway, at the corner of Prospect Place.
