Just a few blocks south of 25 Kent Avenue, located in the same Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, 187 Kent Avenue is a new seven-story mixed-use residential project rising between Metropolitan Avenue and North 3rd Street. Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. is the architect of record, and the site is being developed by CW Realty Management, who purchased it for $43 million, or $512 per square foot. The building is already a couple floors off the ground and will eventually stand around 85 feet tall, and contain a total of 140,036 square feet of space.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on plans to build a 40-story mixed-use tower on the wedge-shaped 570 Fulton Street lot in Downtown Brooklyn. Renderings have now surfaced of the proposal, and though they are low in quality, they still reveal quite a lot about the project. The proposition would be a good step forward for Brooklyn’s densification, and the new office space will help ameliorate the Borough’s residential imbalance.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 58 Palmetto Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Gates Avenue subway station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Joel Schwartz of South Side Units will be responsible for the development.
Fresh renderings have revealed the facade and updated layouts of a new condominium development on the rise at 37 Lafayette Avenue, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The structure will climb 10 stories and contain a mix of residential, medical office, and retail space.
Coming to the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg near the corner of North 7th Street and Wythe Avenue, 71 North 7th Street is a new project under development by Largo, with JDS as a minority partner. The building will yield 9,446 square feet of retail space and 9,045 square feet of rentable Class A office space across three floors. Sitting just one block away from the East River, the site was purchased for $10.5 million, and will feature a mix of brown-brick facade with south-facing industrial style windows, as revealed in today’s first look at renderings.
