The New York City Council has approved plans to convert a defunct 29-story hotel development near the DUMBO, Brooklyn waterfront into an affordable housing complex. The building is located at 90 Sands Street and was formerly owned by the Watch Tower Society, a business entity for the Jehovah’s Witness religious organization.
Morris Adjmi Architects’s 29-story residential tower may soon go vertical at 550 Clinton Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, following developer Hope Street Capital’s procurement of $180 million in construction financing. The building will eventually comprise 280,000 square feet including 284 apartments and about 60,000 square feet of retail area.
Construction has kicked off on a five-story, 43-unit apartment building at 445 Vanderbilt Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Loketch Group, the project’s primary developer, released renderings of the property early last year from Marvel Architects. The Meral Property Group is credited as co-developer of the project.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 150 Noll Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Located between Wilson Avenue and Central Avenue, the through lot is a short walk to the Morgan Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Yechiel Stern under the Noll Street Realty USA LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a 47-story mixed-use building at 98 DeKalb Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Located across the street from The Brooklyn Hospital Center, the lot also fronts Ashland Place with the address 180 Ashland Place. Nearby is the DeKalb Avenue subway station, serviced by the B, Q, and R trains, as well as the Fulton Street station serviced by the G train.
