New renderings are out for the conversion and expansion of the old church at 120 Java Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and YIMBY has the exclusive close-ups. The project is located just three blocks away from the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G trains. The existing structure had functioned as the parish hall for a nearby Episcopal church, Church of the Ascension. Developer Chris Horrigan, of Horrigan Companies, purchased the site in July of 2015 for $4,050,000, along with air rights from the church’s place of worship at 127 Kent Street. The building had been used as a relief spot during Hurricane Sandy. The project has since passed hands, and now SL Development is leading its dramatic transformation and residential rebirth.
120 Java Street isn’t the only church-to-residential project YIMBY can reveal today. We also have a fresh rendering for 24 Fourth Avenue, rising just steps from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, in Boerum Hill. Designed by ODA Architecture, the 12-story, mixed-use building will contain 72 residences, ground floor retail, a community facility, and an enclosed parking structure with accommodations for 16 vehicles.
Brooklyn-based Salvatore Inzerillo has filed applications for a seven-story, 24-unit residential building at 651 Liberty Avenue, in East New York, Brooklyn.

Permits have been filed for two three-story townhouse buildings at 85 and 87 Calyer Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

New permit filings for 470 Manhattan Avenue, accompanied by the first on-site renderings, reveal the sprawling residential development is now moving forward.
