The Landmark Preservation Commission recently granted unanimous approval for the construction of a single-story commercial building in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The property is located at 20 Old Fulton Street and will contain ARABICA Coffee’s first stateside coffee shop and a second, unconfirmed retail tenant.
Preparations for construction appear to be underway at the site of the River Street Waterfront Master Plan, Bjarke Ingels Group‘s proposed two-skyscraper, 1000-unit complex along the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn. Developed by Two Trees, the project includes the 600-foot-tall 87 River Street and 650-foot-tall 105 River Street, as well as the alteration of the shoreline to create a circular beach, a 2.9-acre park, and two breakwaters directly to the north of the six-acre Domino Park.
Exterior work is nearing completion at 200 Kent Avenue, a six-story mixed-use building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The 83-foot-tall, 125,000-square-foot development is designed by ME Architect P.C. and developed by Cornell Realty Management, which purchased the rectangular full-block parcel for $33 million by two anonymous entities in the summer of 2016.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission recently reviewed proposals from Fogarty Finger Architecture to renovate and expand existing retail area within the landmarked 15 Park Row tower in Manhattan’s Financial District. The structure was originally constructed in 1899, then converted in the early 2000s to accommodate rental apartments with ground-floor retail area.
Construction has topped out on 302 Broadway, a six-story mixed-use residential building located next to the elevated Marcy Avenue subway platform in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The reinforced concrete structure stands 65 feet tall and is currently covered in a thick layer of scaffolding and black netting. Designed by Brooklyn-based design firm PAUL and developed by Kazi Billah, 302 Broadway spans 26,070 square feet and will include 5,790 square feet of ground-floor retail space, 5,790 square feet of medical offices on the second floor, a 12-car garage on the third floor, and 24 residential units from the fourth to sixth floors. The site is bounded by Broadway, Marcy Avenue, and South Ninth Street, and overlooks the southbound lanes of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
