Over the course of 2018, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development increasingly shifted focus to the development of sustainable, environmentally-conscious housing for low-income New Yorkers. Today, YIMBY has the first look at one such three-story, multi-unit housing development at 190 Essex Street, in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.
Applications for a new 31-story residential building at 1 Bell Slip in Greenpoint, Brooklyn were filed this week. Located at the north end of Greenpoint, the proposed tower is bordered by Newtown Creek on one end and Commercial Street on the other. The closest subway station, Greenpoint Avenue, is half a mile south on Manhattan Avenue, and is serviced by the G train. Brookfield is listed as the owner behind the applications. This is one of four residential components Brookfield is developing with partner Park Tower Group at Greenpoint Landing, a 22-acre master-planned development site on the Brooklyn waterfront that includes 1 Blue Slip.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 50 Commercial Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The site is located between Clay and Box Streets, in the northern end of the neighborhood. Nearby transportation includes the LIRR at Long Island City, the ferry at India Street, and the G train at Greenpoint Avenue, all of which are within a half mile’s walk. Nicholas Manetta, founder of Rimani Realty, LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for two four-story residential buildings on adjacent lots at 1451-1453 Sutter Avenue, in East New York, Brooklyn. The development sites are located between Grant Avenue and Eldert Lane. Nearby transit options include the A train at Grant Avenue, and the A and C trains at Euclid Avenue. 1451-1453 Sutter Avenue, LLC is listed as the owner on the filings.
Major progress has been made for Brooklyn’s first supertall over the past several weeks. Excavation has continued apace, and more materials have also been delivered to 9 DeKalb Avenue as the year wraps up. The tower is the 6th-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown, and will dramatically change the skyline of Brooklyn in the coming years. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development and the Chetrit Group, the 1,066-foot-tall residential and mixed-use project will house approximately 500 housing units atop its rejuvenation of an historic retail podium.
