The first condos hit the market last week at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue in the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park development, and YIMBY has a few attractive renderings of the building’s amenity spaces and lobby.
YIMBY previously posted renderings of a tentative redesign and redevelopment set for the Macy’s store in Downtown Brooklyn, and now we have another submission from the project’s competition, though evidently this creation was not selected. The design comes from Leeser Architecture and would have featured two residential towers in addition to new and revamped retail space.
As development in Brooklyn pushes further east, apartment buildings are slowly filling the sleepy triangular piece of Bed Stuy known as Ocean Hill, near Broadway Junction in East New York. A tipster has sent YIMBY a rendering for one such development, a 32-unit building at 1325 Herkimer Street.
The Bedford-Nostrand G train stop is ground zero for new construction in Bed Stuy, and yesterday, plans were filed to construct a six-story building a few blocks to the east at 253 Tompkins Avenue, across the street from Herbert Von King Park.
Market-rate construction isn’t hard to find in eastern Crown Heights and Ocean Hill, but it’s still pretty unusual a few blocks south in Brownsville, where the neighborhood’s reputation tends to scare off investors.
