Construction has topped out on the four-story, eight-unit mixed-use building under development at 325 Henry Street, also known as 112 Atlantic Avenue, located in Cobble Hill. All eight of the project’s condominiums are also sold out, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported. The latest building permits indicate the structure encompasses 25,244 square feet and rises 50 feet to its roof, not including bulkhead elements.
In 2015, Fortis Property Group laid out plans to redevelop the Long Island College Hospital property, located on several blocks in Cobble Hill. One proposal was for as-of-right development, while the other required an individual rezoning, approved through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). The developer has decided to move forward with the as-of-right plan, which will not include any affordable residential units, Politico reported.
New renderings have been revealed of the eight four-story, single-family townhouses planned at 88-96 Amity Street, in Cobble Hill. The renderings come as the project also receives its official name, Polhemus Townhouses, Curbed NY reported. There will be two types of townhouses. One type will be called the Terrace House, to measure 5,900 square feet and to feature four bedrooms, a fifth-floor penthouse, three outdoor terraces, and two gardens. The second type will be called the Garden House, to measure 4,300 square feet and to feature four bedrooms, two terraces, and two gardens. Both types will feature cellar levels and indoor parking. YIMBY brought you news of the project when filings were submitted in late 2015. Fortis Property Group is the developer and Brooklyn-based Romines Architecture is designing. A seven-story former Long Island College Hospital medical building must first be demolished.

Fortis Property Group is slowly redeveloping Long Island College Hospital into apartments and an NYU Langone Medical Center, but a smaller project is brewing across the street.
