Back in August of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for the six-story, 29-unit mixed-use building at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill. Now, Curbed NY has updated details on the project, as well as the first partial renderings revealing the structure’s exterior. The 114,812-square-foot building, dubbed the Hendrik, will actually feature 33 residential units, averaging 1,680 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums, ranging from two- to four-bedroom configurations. Per the Schedule A, amenities will include a fitness center and a 12,725-square-foot parking garage in the sub-cellar. There will also be 16,293 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels. Hope Street Capital and AEW Capital Management are the developers, with Beyer Blinder Belle behind the design. The site’s old Walgreens store was demolished in 2015 and completion of the new structure is expected in 2017.
Back in July of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for TF Cornerstone’s planned 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building at 300 Livingston Street (a.k.a. 33 Bond Street), in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, Commercial Observer has the latest details on the 734,312-square-foot project. Since our last report, the developer has secured $250 million in construction financing. The new building will also have a larger retail component than reported earlier. There will be 55,000 square feet of retail across the ground and cellar levels, and grocers and gyms are already in negotiations for the space. The residential units should average 790 square feet apiece, and 20 percent of them, or 143 apartments, will rent at below market-rates. Demolition of the site’s 49,942-square-foot five-story parking garage wrapped up in early 2015. Handel Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
Pommes Frites, the Belgian fried potato joint in the East Village, was destroyed in a deadly explosion linked to an illegal gas tap on March 26, 2015. Now, the establishment is set to re-open a bit to the west. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved its façade at 128 MacDougal Street, located between Bleecker Street and West 3rd Street in the South Village Historic District.
In December of 2014, YIMBY revealed Cornell Realty Management’s plans for a 17-story, 180-key hotel at 245-247 West 34th Street, in Midtown’s Garment District. Those plans have since been discarded, as Cornell and Chetrit Group have divided up their 34th Street assemblage into two separate ownerships. Earlier this year, Cornell announced plans to build a four-story retail complex at 257-263 West 34th Street, and now Chetrit has filed applications for a 32-story, 300-key hotel building at 243-255 West 34th Street. The new building will encompass 155,594 square feet, of which 122,426 square feet will be used as commercial space.
During the summer of 2015, YIMBY reported that demolition was competed on the two-story commercial building at 1 Flatbush Avenue, in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, excavation is underway for the planned 19-story, 157-unit mixed-use building replacing it, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The new structure will encompass roughly 170,000 square feet, 24,500 square feet of which will be used for retail space across the cellar through second floors. The rental apartments should average 793 square feet apiece, and 32 of them will rent at below market-rates through the housing lottery. Amenities include storage space for 79 bikes in the cellar, a fitness center, followed by entertainment lounges/recreation rooms, a library, a yoga room, all located on the third floor, and a rooftop terrace. Developers Slate Property Group and Meadow Partners landed a $110 million construction loan earlier this year. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
