In exciting news for Sunset Park, plans for 6208 8th Avenue are now pushing closer to reality. A major proposal for the former railroad site in Brooklyn would create over one million square feet of mixed-use development. The structures would include commercial, residential, and community facility space. The site is next door to the 8th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N trains. Since YIMBY last checked in on progress, the design has not changed, but new information has now been released providing specific details for the proposal.
Today, YIMBY has the exclusive first look at renderings of 1 Flatbush Avenue’s interiors and exteriors. The structure, triangularly shaped at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street, will be adding new rental apartments to Downtown Brooklyn, 20% of which will let at affordable rates. Slate Property Group and Meadow Partners are responsible for the development.
Permits have been pre-filed a 35-story mixed-use high rise at 185 Broadway in Manhattan’s Financial District. This is the largest development filed for the area in 2018, at least, so far. The site is located right in the center of the neighborhood, near just about every major train line on the subway system, with the Fulton Street transport hub situated across the street. SL Green Realty is responsible for the project.
Permits have been pre-filed for a 19-story high-rise at 65 Franklin Street in Tribeca, Manhattan. The site is right on the corner of Franklin and Broadway, less than five blocks from the 1, 2, 6, N, Q, R, W, J, and Z trains, and seven blocks from the City Hall Park. Monzer Khafagy of HAP Investments is listed as the project executive responsible for the development.
Permits have been approved for the enlargement of 60 Charlton Street, which will yield a 12-story retail and office building in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan. The building was formerly known as 163 Varick Street. Kenneth Aschendorf of APF Properties is responsible for the development, after purchasing the lot for $65 million in July 2017.
