A landmarked collection of buildings in the Meatpacking District is about to get a dramatic revamp. RKF and Tavros Capital Partners are marketing the 38,000-square-foot retail space on the prime corner of 14th Street, Ninth Avenue and Hudson Street, and they’ve sent along renderings of what the property could look like for a new commercial tenant.
A rather sad little three-story storefront with apartments above it has been neglected for years at 1516 Fulton Street, on the corner of Throop Avenue and across the street from the entrance to the C train. But a new owner has taken over the site and plans to expand it to an eight-story apartment building.
Developers flocked to Ocean Avenue in Brooklyn during the years following World War I, and after decades of decline, builders have finally returned to the broad, tree-lined thoroughfare. The latest new building planned there is 1704 Ocean Avenue, a seven-story residential development between Avenue L and Avenue M in Midwood.
Crown Heights has some of the fastest rising rents in all of Brooklyn. It’s gentrifying at a rate that merited two New York Times real estate section features in the last year, neither of which could resist mentioning riots that occurred 24 years ago. At the same time, new development is sweeping across the area, concentrated at the western edge between Washington and Nostrand Avenues.
The site at 151 Maiden Lane has gone through several different designs, revealed by YIMBY over the past few years, and while we’ve posted what appears to be the final look for the site’s 51-story residential tower, its hotel component has been missing. But now, YIMBY has the first renderings of the future Marriott, designed by Peter Poon, which will actually fit in fairly nicely with its surroundings.
