Hen Hawk NY LLC has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building measuring 5,340 square feet at 522 Evergreen Avenue, in central Bushwick. Suresh Manchanda is designing, and an existing two-story structure must first be demolished.
Last July, YIMBY obtained construction documents for the future Nordstrom Tower at 217 West 57th Street, and we translated the diagrams into renderings. And now, we have obtained official renderings created by the architect, depicting Midtown (and potentially, the Western Hemisphere’s) future tallest tower.
A single-story brick building that was once a church has been demolished at 142 Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg, and this four-story development with dark brick will rise in its place. YIMBY noticed the rendering on the fence at the empty lot, which sits mid-block on Manhattan between Meserole Street and Montrose Avenue.
Last summer, permits were filed for a four-story, 10-unit building at 434 Manhattan Avenue between Bayard Street and the BQE, in the borderlands between Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Now YIMBY has a look at the schematic for the development, which was posted on the fence.
If there’s one thing that community boards, developers and architects can agree on, it’s that the city’s zoning code is outdated, restrictive and unclear. So the Department of City Planning is trying to get feedback from architects, planners and communities on its proposed zoning changes, which are meant to spur the construction of affordable and senior housing.
