Rezonings in the South Bronx have spurred development in Morrisania, Melrose and Mott Haven, but new construction has been slow to arrive in the neighborhoods nearby, like Crotona Park East and Longwood. However, new building applications were filed over the weekend for a seven-story apartment building at 1417 Longfellow Avenue, between Jennings and Freeman Streets in Crotona Park East.
Earlier this year, YIMBY posted drawings and floorplans that offered an idea of what 514 West 24th Street will look like. The site will soon give rise to a 10-story condominium building designed by Roman & Williams, and we can now reveal the first rendering of the project, dubbed The Fitzroy, which also now has its teaser website.
Tribeca-based developer DDG has just started construction on 180 East 88th Street, set to become the tallest tower above 72nd Street, when it tops out at 521 feet.
In May, DNAinfo published the first rendering of a seven-story rental building set to replace a bodega and a dollar store at 810 Flushing Avenue in Bushwick, close to the Bed-Stuy borderlands and Woodhull Medical Center. Now YIMBY has a new design for the project, a balcony-bedecked structure that will fill a corner lot bordered by Beaver and Fayette Streets.
The squat two-story commercial building that once filled the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street has been completely demolished. Back in April, the Post reported that Slate Property Group and and Meadow Partners closed on the purchase of the site at 1 Flatbush Avenue for a record-breaking $59 million, and it looks like work is moving right along.
