The New York Daily News has broken news that Arker Companies and Two Trees will develop a sixteen-story mixed-income building at 120 3rd Avenue, in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. This comes almost two years after the city announced a program focused on reutilizing thirty to forty New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) locations around the city. Effectively, this means new structures rising up on undeveloped land generally used for recreation or, in the case of this newest announcement, two parking lots.
Demolition permits have been filed for several three-story structures along Fourth Avenue, a commercial thoroughfare right on the border between Park Slope and Boerum Hill, in Brooklyn. 122 Fourth Avenue and 601 Baltic Street are now destined for demolition. Both projects are under the leadership of the architect and real estate developer Hal Einhorn, of Einhorn Development Group.
The Hendrik is nearing completion, and today YIMBY has an update on the project, at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, thanks to Tectonic. The building is a large development, with 33 condominiums designed for families who love townhouses and modern amenities. Scaffolding on Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street still remains and sheds along the sidewalk obscure vision of the entranceway and masonry along Pacific Street, as seen in the rendering, but the Beyer Blinder Belle-designed exterior is just about finished.
Back in February of 2016, YIMBY revealed a new four-story condominium building coming to 371 Baltic Street, in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood. Now, job applications have been filed for the site, indicating that construction is about to move forward. Permits were also filed back in 2014, however, there have been changes since then, when the original plan called for preserving the first two floors of an extant structure. Instead, that has been demolished completely. The scope of the project has remained almost the same, totaling 4,998 square feet of residential space, to be divided among four units.
We have a bit of a theme going this week: updates from Baltic Street in Brooklyn. On Tuesday, we told you about the Baltic Park Slope at 613 Baltic Street. On Thursday, we told you about the rentals at 577 Baltic Street. Now, we have a report Adam America Real Estate’s “high-end” rentals under construction at 595 Baltic Street.
