YIMBY checked in on 141 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a forthcoming 23-story office building. Demolition has concluded and the land sits awaiting excavation for the 360-foot-tall structure, which is being designed by Fogarty Finger Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record. Gregory Jaffe of Savanna is listed as the owner on the applications that were filed in June 2019.
Work is wrapping up on The Symon, a 13-story condominium building at 70 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. Colberg Architecture is the architect of record, while Lonicera Partners, Orange Management, and The Davis Companies are the three developers. The project is located between Boerum Place and Court Street and is steps away from the faux subway entrance to the subterranean New York Transit Museum. Studio DB designed the interior and exteriors of the building.
The Cove at 43-12 Hunter Street sits in the middle of Long Island City, Queens. The detailed grey-colored curtain wall of windows and metal panels cover the entire 18-story, reinforced concrete edifice. Right now the final touches remain on the ground-floor envelope, sidewalk, and interiors. SLCE Architects is the designer of the building and Slade Architecture is in charge of the interior design. Rockrose Development is the developer of the triangular site, which was previously purchased for $1 million back in 2006. The Cove will yield 123 rental units with 37 units being affordable homes, or roughly 30 percent of the total inventory.
Façade work is progressing on 21-59 44th Drive, a topped-out six-story residential building from Z Architecture in Long Island City, Queens. Located at the northern corner of 44th Drive and 23rd Street, the property will contain 20 units, 2,600 square feet of retail space, and 361 square feet of community facilities.
