Alloy Development will today appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to obtain approval for a residential conversion in Brooklyn’s DUMBO Historic District. Located at 168 Plymouth Street, the development includes the transformation of a five-story structure at 50 Jay Street, and a neighboring seven-story building at 42 Jay Street.
Located in South Williamsburg, which like most of Brooklyn has been undergoing rapid and major changes over the past decade, a small building at the intersection of Broadway, South Sixth Street and Bedford Avenue, has some new renderings. Cayuga Capital Management LLC is the developer, and has revealed fresh new images of the project. They previously purchased the sharp, triangular vacant lot back in 2016.
Extell Development Company has announced the successful acquisition of $530 million in financing for Brooklyn Point, its first development in the borough. When complete, the 720-foot-tall structure will become the tallest residential tower in Brooklyn, surpassing The Hub, located just to its south.
Last but not least in this week’s updates on the city’s Brownsville plan is the first look at Livonia 4, a mixed-use, multi-site development comprised of a series of adjacent parcels in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Construction is expected to begin this year and the project is the third new development announced as part of “The Brownsville Plan,” with design by Magnusson Architecture and Planning. The $1 billion initiative is expected to yield over 2,500 affordable homes, infrastructure upgrades, arts and cultural facilities, and new community service programs.
Glenmore Manor Apartments is the second residential property announced in updates to the city’s $1 billion infrastructure and affordable housing plan designed to reinvigorate Brownsville, Brooklyn. The apartments will occupy an assemblage of land at the intersection of Christopher Avenue and Glenmore Avenue, and Think! Architecture + Design is the project architect.
