JMH Development and Madison Estates just won Landmarks approval to transform the Brooklyn Heights Cinema into apartments, but their first project to rise in a historic district was the Townhouses of Cobble Hill, at 110-126 Congress Street. The development’s five new townhouses are inching toward completion, and renovations seem to have finished at the four 19th century Greek Revival homes.
UPDATE: while permits would seem to indicate condominium’s given the developer’s LLC, a rep for HTO has corrected YIMBY, and 411 Ninth Avenue will actually have rentals.
A sliver lot on the northwest corner of Ninth Avenue and 33rd Street has remained vacant for quite some time, but YIMBY now has the reveal for the building that will soon rise at 411 Ninth Avenue. HTO Architect is designing the project, which has been dubbed Skylight House.
The narrow blocks next to the Fulton Transit Center are about to get a little more crowded, now that plans have been filed for a 26-story hotel at 143 Fulton Street, between Broadway and Nassau Street.
BRP Companies plans to spend nearly $300 million developing two mixed-use high rises just north of Jamaica Station in Queens, in what some have called the “largest private investment in Downtown Jamaica in decades.” Now they’ve filed new building applications for their megaproject on Archer Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard, a combination of a church, mixed-income apartments and retail.
With the first of Related’s Hudson Yards towers now inching towards its pinnacle, it should come as no surprise that other developers with nearby sites are also beginning to move ahead with plans of their own. Kuafu Properties and Siras Development are building a 700-foot tall 42-story mixed-use tower at 470 Eleventh Avenue, between 37th and 38th Streets, and YIMBY has a fresh set of close-up renderings that also show some slight modifications to the “lantern-inspired” design.
