Applications filed for a 255-unit affordable building at 2119 Caton Avenue aren’t the only progress YIMBY has to report for Flatbush today. Another new affordable and supportive housing development has now topped-out at 1355 Rogers Avenue, dubbed Crystal Tower, and designed by Delacour, Ferrara, & Church Architects. The project has 123 apartments spanning eight floors and 91,100 square feet of residential space; 74 of those units will be reserved for formerly homeless individuals, 41 will be for seniors and their families that are currently on the NYCHA waitlist, and eight three-bedroom units will be available to the community at large via lottery. Completion is expected by 2018, and the site is being developed by The Doe Fund and Crystal Ball, LLC.
Yesterday, YIMBY brought you the reveal for 308 North 7th Street in Williamsburg, designed by Issac & Stern Architects. Today, the prolific architects have filed permits for another new project in the neighborhood, at 632 Metropolitan Avenue, which is roughly equidistant between the Metropolitan and Graham Avenue stops on the L Train. The building will rise six floors and total 8,577 square feet of residential space, which will be divided amongst ten rental-sized units. Amleto Mazza of 632 Metropolitan Avenue, LLC, is listed as the developer, and demolition permits for the site’s previous two-story home were filed back in June of 2016.
Yesterday, YIMBY brought you two reveals for developments coming to the architecturally-neglected blocks of Greenpoint. Today, we have an updated design for a building coming to Greenpoint’s even less fortunate cousin, Williamsburg, at 308 North 7th Street, which will substantially improve a lot formerly occupied by nondescript industrial and commercial structures.
West Harlem has been booming with infill development over the past few years, and YIMBY recently revealed two new residential buildings coming to Convent Avenue, in the immediate blocks northwest of West 125th Street. Now, renderings are out for another new project in the neighborhood, at 370 West 125th Street, between Morningside and St. Nicholas Avenues.
Jersey City’s ongoing boom will give its skyline new tallest towers along the waterfront, and eventually out in Journal Square as well. While those projects may be the most high-profile, a collection of other skyscrapers are rising in tandem across the rest of the city, and now, Jersey is set to get its own architectural equivalent of Manhattan’s Silver Towers, as proposed for 560-580 Marin Boulevard. According to Jersey Digs, the project will have 750 apartments, as well as 240,000 square feet of non-residential square footage, alongside a 1,098-space parking garage. The proposal has already received most of its necessary approvals, and the site is currently occupied by parking lots and a four-story warehouse, which will soon be demolished.
