With the main facade beginning to shed the black construction netting and scaffolding, the dark-colored glazed bricks covering The Brooklyn Grove have begun to be unveiled. Standing above Boerum Hill just off of Flatbush Avenue, the new building is located at 10 Nevins Street. The 27-story residential tower will have 184 units comprised of studios to three-bedroom layouts. It is being designed by ODA, with Stephen B. Jacobs Group serving as the architect or record. Adam America Real Estate, Slate Property Group and Vanke US are the developers, while The Aguayo Team of Halstead Property Development Marketing is handling sales.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story hotel at 9 Patchen Avenue, in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn.

Moris Yero-Shalmi of ABCNY is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Netherlands-based design firm Studio SENK teamed up with DMOO, a rendering company, to visualize a new residential tower in DUMBO, and YIMBY has a first look at the impressive concept. The glass skyscraper would stand between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge, with a base rising from within the atrium of the recently-completed Empire Stores, and an upper portion that would finally give DUMBO an iconic presence on the overall Brooklyn skyline.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission is reviewing proposals to install a new entrance marquee at the iconic Williamsburgh Savings Bank, in Brooklyn. The property’s official address is 175 Broadway, and it was originally constructed in 1875 by American architect George B. Post. The formidable structure most notably features a large domed tower and an adjacent low-rise structure.
The massive rectangular-shaped project taking up a full block at 85 Jay Street has officially been dubbed “Front and York,” and today YIMBY has a full update on site progress. Bound by Front Street and York Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, the 1.1 million square foot residential complex will soon sprout from what was one of the neighborhood’s last and largest undeveloped lots. The new building, with retail shops on the ground floor and a mixture of condominiums and rentals above, is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and is being developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK.
