Recent permits filed detail a new three-building development on the eastern edge of Borough Park, Brooklyn. The site is comprised of both new and renovated multi-family homes, with house numbers 1663, 1667, and 1669 42nd Street. All three properties will stand 35 feet tall, and are divided into three stories with two residences.
Architect Karl Fischer’s latest development has taken rise in a buzzing corner of Brooklyn’s East Williamsburg neighborhood. When complete, the project will yield 33, 987 square feet of new residential property, 10,829 feet of prime commercial space, and a 24,070 square foot community facility. Filings also indicate enclosed parking volumes designed to accomodate up to 59 vehicles.
The official Census guesswork for 2017 has now been released, showing a gain of 7,272 individuals across the Five Boroughs, and a drop of over 2,000 people in Brooklyn. While the actual Census in 2010 was decried as leaving hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers missing from the count, it seems that whoever was behind the calculations for 2017 may have been even more incompetent, with changes to the borough-by-borough tallies painting a picture that makes no sense whatsoever.
Fresh permits have revealed a new, two-building development with dual addresses at 1643 and 1645 New York Avenue, in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The project will rise five blocks away from the Flatbush Avenue Subway Station, the end of the line for the 2 and 5 trains, and a short walk east to the Brooklyn College campus.
