Work has yet to commence at 53 Pearl Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, where BKSK Architects has designed a multi-story rooftop expansion for the landmarked 140-year-old Italianate-style building. Located between Plymouth Street and Water Street, almost directly to the east of the Manhattan Bridge, the structure was once a factory for the Masury Paint Company and was transformed into rental apartments several years ago.
Work is continuing on 291 Livingston Street, a 22-story, 100-room hotel building in Downtown Brooklyn. The 189-foot-tall project is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Aview Equities and Hello Living, which purchased the plot for $11.1 million. The property is located between Nevins Street to the east and Hanover Place to the west, and is planned to contain a ground-floor beer garden.
A new series of renderings have been revealed for 69 Adams Street, a 26-story, 280-foot-tall mixed-use project in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by Fischer + Makooi Architects and developed by The Rabsky Group, the project will span 308,145 square feet and yield 225 residential units ranging from studios to two-bedroom layouts. The property will also include ground-floor retail area and 90 parking spaces. The 17,464-square-foot lot is bound by Front Street to the north, Adams Street to the west, York Street to the south, and the elevated Manhattan Bridge roadway to the immediate east.
Construction is nearing topping out at 18 Sixth Avenue, a 49-story residential skyscraper in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by The Brodsky Organization and Greenland Forest City Partners, the 740,000-square-foot structure will yield 858 rental units, of which 258 will be dedicated to affordable housing. At 532 feet tall, it will stand as the tallest building in the 22-acre Pacific Park master plan. The property sits directly to the east of Barclays Center and is bound by Atlantic Avenue to the north and the corner of Sixth Avenue and Pacific Street to the east.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story residential building at 389 Weirfield Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Located between Irving Avenue and Wyckoff Avenue, the lot is one block from the Halsey Street subway station, serviced by the L train. The Horizon Group under the Horizon at 391 Weirfield LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications. In September the development company filed permits for a five-story residential building at 378 Weirfield Street.
