Today YIMBY has the latest on RXR’s imminent opening of Atlantic Station in Downtown Stamford, Connecticut, but that isn’t the only news out of the city. Yesterday was the groundbreaking event for yet another new rental, by Urban Ready Living ( i.e. URBY), which will be building its fourth iteration, following others in Staten Island, Jersey City, and Harrison, NJ. The development occupies a 4.3-acre lot, and is being built by Ironstate Development Co., in a joint venture partnership with Brookfield Property Group. Stamford Mayor David Martin also participated in the event, and expressed joy for finally filling the space he referred to as the infamous “hole in the ground.”
Williamsburg-based developer Cayuga Capital is converting old buildings all over Brooklyn to apartments, from a Bushwick church to a steel factory on North 4th Street. Now YIMBY has a rendering of their latest venture, which will transform an old garage at 600 Bushwick Avenue into apartments and retail. The revamped structure will gain four stories and 64 rental units.
Windows are going in at Adam America’s 247 North 7th Street rental project in Williamsburg, where YIMBY found this rendering on the fence.
A condo conversion and a new 12-story rental building are slowly taking shape at two former Jehovah’s Witnesses properties in Dumbo. Two years ago, Landmarks approved plans to convert an old Brillo factory at 200 Water Street into 15 condos, which will include two-, three- and four-bedrooms with terraces.
