Crown Heights-based developer Hello Living is putting up new buildings all over central Brooklyn, mostly in neighborhoods north and east of Prospect Park. YIMBY recently swung by the firm’s sizable development under construction at 271 Lenox Road, at the corner of Nostrand Avenue in Flatbush.
The neighborhoods just south and east of Prospect Park are ground zero for new construction and rising rents. A little single-family house at 62 East 21st Street, between Caton and Woodruff Avenues, met the wrecking ball last year for an apartment building. Now we have a look at what’s replacing it.
Two-and a-half years ago, YIMBY revealed renderings for a 28-story hotel at 50 Trinity Place in the Financial District. Now we have fresh images of the development, which is going to be an Aloft Hotel.
City officials unveiled a massive rezoning last night for East Harlem, where the administration hopes to encourage towers as tall as 30 stories, less parking for new buildings, and more ground floor retail.
The last time YIMBY checked in on the new 58-story and 800-foot tall tower coming to 111 Murray Street, the building was just creeping above ground level. Now, a little over two months later, the structure is already climbing past its 15th floor, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer Kevin LeClerc.
