New permits have a revealed mixed-use development will soon rise at 2633 Ocean Avenue, in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The corner lot currently sits vacant, but will eventually yield an eight-story structure with adjacent enclosed parking designed to accommodate 30 vehicles.

Permits filed reveal a bright new addition to 147 Stanhope Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and today YIMBY has the first rendering for the project. The architect is Beam Architects, and the design is by J Goldman Design. The residential building will rise a modest four stories, and comprise eight rental apartments.
New York’s NIMBYs rarely choose battles worth fighting, needlessly and maliciously bogging down the process of new development in many of the city’s neighborhoods. But one of the more vindictive melees now taking place is being fought over 80 Flatbush Avenue, a pair of mixed-use buildings that would add substantially to Brooklyn’s housing stock, promising 900 new apartments, office space, retail and cultural amenities, and two schools totaling 700 seats. After launching a website, NIMBYs opposing the project have doubled down on their regressive bottom line, deleting a poll they themselves had created, after a 3:1 voting margin in favor of the proposal threatened to undermine a message without merit.
