A small, boutique condo project is about to replace a century-old brick apartment building at 371 Baltic Street, in the borderlands between Boerum Hill, Gowanus, and Carroll Gardens. YIMBY has renderings of the four-story building, which will rise between Smith and Hoyt streets, near Gowanus Houses.
A six-story apartment building may grow on a vacant lot at 45 Lenox Road, between Flatbush and Bedford avenues in Flatbush.
The city is about to rezone the northeastern swath of East New York around Broadway Junction, but development is still brewing at the neighborhood’s far-flung edges. MacQuesten Development has filed plans for a sizable affordable project called Van Sinderen Plaza in the New Lots section of the hood, beneath the elevated L train tracks and next to the border with Brownsville.
Last week, YIMBY brought you news that 2100 Bedford Avenue in Flatbush had topped out. Now, we have a rendering for the eight-story project, which is being designed by the prolific and notorious Karl Fischer.
