Late last year, John Hermanowski’s six-story, 14-unit mixed-use building topped out at 263 Bedford Avenue, in northwestern Williamsburg, and now the building has landed a retail tenant, according to Commercial Observer. Martha’s Country Bakery will take 3,300 square feet of space on the ground floor, and an additional 4,000 square feet in the cellar. The residential units above will spread across 18,265 square feet of space, for average units of 1,305 square feet. The bakery will open in early 2016 once the building finishes, and Jung Wor Chin is the architect of record.
Back in June, complete renderings were revealed of Extell Development’s 22-story, 114-unit mixed-use building underway at 70 Charlton Street, in Hudson Square, and now the structure is up to the 12th floor, per Curbed, courtesy of Tectonic. The through-block development will contain 2,830 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a mix of condo and affordable rental units — 92 and 22, respectively — will occupy the floors above. Beyer Blinder Belle is designing, and occupancy is expected in late 2016.
Joseph Brunner has acquired a seven-building development assemblage spanning 1050-1066 Manhattan Avenue and 154 Eagle Street, in northern Greenpoint, for $18 million. The site is located seven blocks north of the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop, and consists of mostly three-story townhouses as well as a single-story shop. Planned is a mixed-use rental building, and if the inclusionary housing bonus is satisfied, the building could be as large as 74,000 square feet, according to The Real Deal.
HAP Investment Developers is proposing a 16-story, 241-unit mixed-use building at 4452 Broadway, in Fort George, four blocks from the 1 train’s stop at 191st Street. The developer initially filed plans for an eight-story, 98-unit mixed-use condo project, which would have been an as-of-right development. According to DNAinfo, the latest proposal must be approved by the city, and a public hearing at Community Board 12 is scheduled on September 2nd. The existing single-story commercial building was filed for demolition in 2014.
In February, YIMBY reported on filings for a small mixed-use development at 491 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Clinton Hill, and now renderings have surfaced of the four-story, six-unit building, per Fort Greene Focus. The entire building will measure just 4,967 square feet, which includes 1,228 square feet for retail space on the ground floor. Units above will average a rental-sized 623 square feet, two per floor, although the top two units will also share a fifth-floor penthouse. An anonymous LLC is developing, and Issac & Stern Architects is designing. Construction is reportedly underway.
