Fresh renderings from local architect Eric Safyan have a revealed a new, mixed-use complex in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The illustrations are included in rezoning proposals presented to New York City’s Department of City Planning to facilitate the construction of a large, two-building development at 1050 Pacific Street.
Located at 1640 Flatbush Avenue, plans for a new 145-foot-tall and 13-story mixed-use building to be designed by S9 Architecture and developed by SL Green Realty Corporation are now heading to the city for approval. Just a short walk from Brooklyn College, the new structure would have 115,056 square feet of new space, with 114 residential units. About thirty percent will be affordable, totaling 34, and the remaining 80 will let for market rates. Retail opportunity will be on the first two floors taking nearly 30,000 square feet.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 286 Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Jay Street subway station, and seven blocks from Borough Hall, serviced collectively by the A, C, F, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. Moshe Katlowitz will be responsible for the development.
A stalled hotel project at 105 North 13th Street in Greenpoint may now be redeveloped for retail, office, and industrial use, as revealed in recent filings with the Department of City Planning.
Quay Tower is not like most of the new residential skyscrapers rising in Brooklyn. The project sits directly against the Brooklyn Heights waterfront, soaring 30 floors above the neighboring brownstone-filled streets, and features a glassy façade paired with brushed copper-hued metals that evoke the iron girders along Pier 6, nearby. Now, the building has now shattered a record for the entire borough, with its penthouse entering contract for $20 million, nearly $4 million over the previous record for a Brooklyn apartment set by actor Matt Damon.
