A parking lot on a valuable stretch of Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill won’t be empty for much longer. Bluerock Real Estate is planning a six-story, four-unit building with commercial space at 330 Atlantic Avenue, between Smith and Hoyt streets.
For over a decade, there have been attempts to build a six-story residential building on one Boerum Hill lot. Now, we can reveal the design of the building currently planned.
Booming Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood is closer to seeing another development come to fruition. Exterior work is nearing completion at the Boerum, located at 265 State Street (a.k.a. 140 Schermerhorn Street).
Construction is wrapping on five four-story, single-family townhouses being constructed at 73-79 Bond Street (a.k.a. 390 State Street), in Boerum Hill. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo taken by Tectonic. The 49-foot-tall townhouses will each measure between 4,310 square feet and 4,566 square feet, which includes an average 2,396 square feet of livable residential space. All of them will include four bedrooms, a single-car garage in the cellar, and a roof terrace equipped with a gas grill. Other features include a screening room and bar in the sub-cellars, and private laundry facilities. Adam America Real Estate is the developer and Hudson Square-based Ben Hansen Architect is responsible for the design. Move-ins are expected in the next few months.
Last week, the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) and the Department of Housing Preservation & Development launched a request for proposals (RFP) for two mixed-use buildings to be built on the super-block home to Wyckoff Gardens, DNAinfo reported. Wyckoff Gardens is a 530-rental-unit public housing development consisting of three 21-story towers in Boerum Hill. The city is seeking a development team to build two new buildings at the site’s northern two corners, at 260 and 280 Wyckoff Street, which currently serve as parking lots. Planned are roughly 500 rental apartments (down from an initial 650) and at least 10,000 square feet each of ground-floor commercial-retail and community facility space. Half of the apartments would be affordable while the other half would be market-rate. Improvements to the entire premises are also possible, including the upgrade of outdoor amenities. Proposals are due September 30.
