New renderings are out for the proposed three-story mixed-use building at 82 John Street, in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The project has taken a turn for the conservative, stripping the façade of the proposed hot dipped galvanized steel, replacing it with a grey matte-glazed brick. The site is five blocks away from the York Street subway station, serviced by the F trains.
Renderings have come out depicting the removal of a single-story garage at 82 John Street, in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to be replaced with a five-story building. Permits have not been filed, so details about the project are not yet final, and the plans will go through the LPC later today.
A Brooklyn Heights building possibly dating back to the administration of President Andrew Jackson can now get a welcome renovation. Last Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a proposal for work on 152 Henry Street.
Though a renovation would be welcome at one pre-Civil War residential building in the city’s first historic district, it will have to wait. Last Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission took no action on a proposal for 152 Henry Street, in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District.
Back in the summer of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a new eight-story, 119-unit mixed-use building at 945 Bergen Street, in northwestern Crown Heights, but those plans have since been abandoned for a more conservative project. Instead of demolishing the former Nassau Brewing Co., Crow Hill Development is planning to convert the dilapidated four- and six-story structures into a single mixed-use building measuring 71,692 square feet. The building will include 32,493 square feet of residential space for 36 units. Retail space and restaurants will be located on the ground and below-grade levels, and the remaining square footage will take on some form of manufacturing use. Commercial Observer reports an $18 million construction loan was recently secured, and completion is expected in early 2017. Formactiv Architecture is designing.
