Midwood is quietly experiencing a boom in residential development, and earlier this week, new building applications were filed for a seven-story residential building at 1533 East 19th Street, in the heart of the almost-suburban Brooklyn neighborhood.
After 50,000 tenants applied to live in the affordable apartments at Stagg Group’s first project in Norwood, Bedford Park Manor, the Bronx developer paid $4.1 million for a property only a few blocks north at 3084 Webster Avenue. Now they’ve filed plans to build an 11-story apartment building on the L-shaped lot between 202nd and 203rd Streets.
In February, glassy renderings surfaced for a 12-story apartment building at 29 Clay Street in Greenpoint. Now the project has taken one more step toward reality with a new building application for a 60-unit development on the property between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street.
The lovely 19th century building at the corner of Prince and Mott Streets in Nolita has been an orphanage, a school, and a convent, but now a developer has begun transforming the landmarked structure into condos. Today, YIMBY has a new rendering of the structure’s restored facade, as well as a series of images based on historic photographs of the property at 34 Prince Street.
The IFC Center movie theater on Sixth Avenue (at West 3rd Street) is one step closer to an expansion that would double the number of screens and alleviate crowding on the sidewalk. This would be accomplished by expanding to an empty lot located behind it at 14-16 Cornelia Street. On Tuesday, the proposal went before the Landmarks Preservation Commission and the commissioners could have approved the upper floors, but wanted more work done at street level.
