Permits have been filed for a twelve-story mixed-use building at 1661 Westchester Avenue, in the Soundview neighborhood of The Bronx. The site is two blocks away from the Morrison Avenue-Soundview subway station, serviced by the 6 trains. Not-for-profit Phipps Houses will be responsible for the development. Their mission has been to provide children, youth, and families that live in low-income neighborhoods with rental housing accompanied by support to help tenants thrive through comprehensive education and career programs, as well as facilitating access to community services.
A new partially-affordable housing project is getting ready to open at 10 Halletts Point, in Astoria, Queens. The 22-story mixed-use complex is rising at 26-01 1st Street, positioned right on the waterfront, across from Manhattan’s Yorkville. This is the first of a seven-building mega-development led by the Durst Organization to reinvigorate the Halletts Point peninsula. Once complete, the entirety will yield 2.4 million square feet of space and create 2,400 rental units, 480 of which will be affordable.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 399 Sands Street as part of the Brooklyn Navy Yard redevelopment. Nestled between the Manhattan Bridge and the Williamsburg Bridge, the area is being reinvented under the helm of Steiner NYC, into a multi-use commercial hub accessible to the public.
As YIMBY reported back in October, construction is nearly complete for the 12-story 280 Ashland Place, in the Downtown Cultural District of Brooklyn, and now, leasing has officially commenced. The project has been named Caesura, a term for the pause in the middle of a line of music poetry. Its next-door neighbor, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, gives the inspiration. Jonathan Rose Companies LLC is behind the building, which had previously gone by the address of 15 Lafayette Avenue.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for renderings of a 15-story affordable housing development at 1932 Bryant Avenue, in The Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood. The site will yield 319 affordable apartments just two blocks away from the West Farms Square Subway Station, which is serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The Bronx Zoo is also nearby, in the same park as the New York Botanical Garden. Second Farms Neighborhood Housing is responsible for the development.
