Yesterday, YIMBY brought you an update on the completed 93-unit affordable residential building at 21 Commercial Street, in Greenpoint, built as part of the 10-building Greenpoint Landing mega-development. Another piece of Greenpoint Landing, at 33 Eagle Street, can also be declared as complete, thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. There, a seven-story, 98-unit mixed-use structure sits measuring 96,446 square feet. It includes 1,514 square feet of ground-floor retail space and contains 97 affordable residential units (and one unit for the superintendent), which range from studios to two-bedrooms and average 885 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, laundry facilities, storage for 49 bikes, and a courtyard. Park Tower Group and L+M Development Partners are the developers, and Handel Architects is behind the design. Occupancy is probably imminent.
Having topped out, the mixed-use tower under construction at 415 Red Hook Lane (a.k.a. 117 Livingston Street), in Downtown Brooklyn, is now receiving its façade.
A rendering and schematic drawings have been revealed of the eight-story, 16-unit mixed-use building planned at 21-10 44th Drive, in the Court Square section of Long Island City. Excavation work is also underway, according to an update by The Court Square Blog. The latest buildings permits — YIMBY first brought you news of them in March of 2015 — describe a 22,328-square-foot structure. It will have 2,710 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units, averaging 1,018 square feet apiece, on the floors above. The apartments will be accommodated by storage for 11 bikes and a “recreational room” in the cellar. Kora Developers is behind the project and Igor Zaslavskiy’s Brooklyn-based Zproekt is the architect of record. Completion is anticipated in the fall of 2018.
The Hackensack Department of Building, Housing, and Land Use has launched a request for proposals (RFP) for a mixed-use site at the municipal parking lot known as Lot “C,” in the city’s downtown. The site is bound by Midtown Bridge Street, Midtown Place, and Salem Street Extension. Plans for the site were approved in 2014, NorthJersey.com reported. The project must include between 240 and 440 residential units, and the apartments must measure greater than 500 square feet apiece. The development can rise as high as 14 stories, contain a maximum of 25,000 square feet of retail, and another 25,000 square feet of commercial space for a hotel or offices. A parking garage is also required and the number of spaces depends on the project’s exact composition. Conceptual designs have been created by DMR Architects. Proposals are due on November 18. Hackensack is the county seat of Bergen County, the most populous in the state.
Michael Gerling, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a nine-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 37 Lafayette Avenue, located at the corner of St. Felix Street in Fort Greene. It will encompass 17,502 square feet and will feature retail space on the ground floor and a mezzanine level, followed by medical offices on the second and third floors. The retail and office space will add up to 6,683 square feet. Six residential units, all duplex apartments, will spread across the fifth through ninth floors. Since the apartments will average 1,775 square feet apiece, YIMBY predicts they will be condominiums. Amenities include a private residential storage space and a rooftop terrace. Midtown East-based DHD Architecture Design is the architect of record. The 43-foot-wide assemblage consists of a vacant lot and and a four-story mixed-use building (at 35 Lafayette Avenue). Demolition permits haven’t been filed.
