New York City-based real estate developer Leser Group recently filed for zoning map amendments to facilitate the construction of a commercial development at 101 Fleet Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. If approved by the New York City Planning Commission, the 14-story office building would comprise 209,354 square feet with anticipated completion by 2021.
A rendering, as well as new details, have surfaced for the five-story, 30-bed rehabilitation facility, dubbed The Hook Recovery Center, under development at 411 Van Brunt Street, in Red Hook. The facility, founded by Michael Mosberg and developed by the Leser Group, will be an upscale, “self-pay” center for individuals suffering from drug addiction.
Red Hook was severely damaged by flooding during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and few residential developers have been willing to touch the transit-starved Brooklyn neighborhood. But commercial projects are alive and well among the 19th century warehouses, from Est4te Four’s big office complex to a factory-to-office conversion on Van Brunt Street. Now new building applications have surfaced for a five-story hotel at 411 Van Brunt Street, only a block from the waterfront.
