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.
The old Mercedes dealership at 520 West 41st Street and Eleventh Avenue is meeting a quick demise, paving the way for Silverstein Properties to begin preparation work for their future mixed-use development. While the project must still pass through ULURP, YIMBY revealed preliminary renderings last June, showing a 1,400-unit tower rising above a significant retail podium. Now we have a few overhead shots of demolition progress taken from the nearly-completed Skye, just a few hundred feet to the northwest.
Earlier this year, YIMBY brought you news of a seven-story, 154-unit senior housing facility planned at 34-11 Beach Channel Drive, in Far Rockaway, and now DNAinfo reports city officials have broken ground on the project, located a block from the A train’s Beach 36th Street stop. Arker Companies is constructing the building, and 46 units will be rented to the formerly homeless. The ground floor will include 4,500 square feet each of retail and community facility space, and Aufgang Architects is designing.
