It was back in October of 2014 that YIMBY reported on developer Jeffrey Gershon acquiring the property at 906 Prospect Place in Brooklyn. It was in late November of 2015 that his design team went before the Landmarks Preservation Commission with their proposal for a new apartment building on the site. On Tuesday of this week, the team went back before the LPC and got approval for their revised design.
When we last checked in with 172 Madison Avenue in November, only 14 stories of concrete had risen at the corner of 33rd Street. Now the condo tower stands 25-stories-tall, and YIMBY has a peek at the construction progress thanks to photos from Tectonic.
Developer Cayuga Capital plans to carve apartments out of an aging brick warehouse on the Greepoint waterfront, and a year and a half after uncovering an initial rendering, YIMBY has a better look at what the stepped development at 79 Quay Street will look like.
As the city prepares to rezone a big swath of East New York, officials haven’t paid much attention to Brownsville, the smaller and poorer neighborhood next door. Despite Brownsville’s rough reputation, developers have started buying up property in the area.
Back in November, YIMBY posted the first renderings for 76 Eleventh Avenue, which is being developed by HFZ Capital. Now, we have a new set of images for the project, which is being designed by Bjarke Ingels Group. They show major tweaks to the formerly jigsaw-like design, and accompanied EB-5 materials for the project sent to YIMBY.
