The lot at 200 Kent Avenue is now clearing out for a six-story commercial building, for which renderings have also appeared. YIMBY last reported on this site in August of 2016, when two anonymous entities purchased the empty 22,640 square foot land for $33 million. The project has been shrouded in mystery regarding a potential deal with the Trader Joe’s grocery chain for 18,000 square feet of the ground floor and cellar.
Permits have been filed for Avery Hall Investment’s two-building development in Park Slope, Brooklyn. YIMBY last reported on the pre-filing for the six-story building at 680 Baltic Street in mid-October. Now, we also see specifics for the four-story 126 Fifth Avenue building. AHI is developing both buildings.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 712 East 187th Street, in Belmont, The Bronx. This would replace a single-story retail structure. The proposal is mostly residential, with space also included for a community facility and commercial retail. The two nearest subway stations are on 183rd street, one serviced by the B and D trains, and the other, the 4 train. They’re both about a half hours’ walk.
Another new addition to Morrisania, in The Bronx, is just months away from completion, at Melrose Commons North Site C, also known as Elton Crossing. YIMBY last reported on the building in September of 2014, when renderings were revealed. Briarwood Organization and Phipps Houses are responsible for development.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a new three-story commercial building at 1 Park Row, in the Financial District. The site is in a prime location for retail, with proximity to the Fulton Street Station, the World Trade Center’s Oculus transit hub, as well as several other subway stops for just about every subway line that runs through Manhattan. The site is right on the southern tip of Steven Flanders Square, home to City Hall.
