Six-Story Affordable Residential Buildings Rising At 1676 & 1700 Broadway, Ocean Hill

Towards the end of last summer, foundation work was underway for a six-story, 79-unit affordable residential building at 1700 Broadway, in Ocean Hill, a block from the Chauncey Street stop on the J and C trains. Now, the structure is five stories above street level, per Brownstoner, and another six-story, 55-unit affordable building by the same developers is four stories up a block to the north, at 1676 Broadway. All units will be rented at well below-market rates and 7,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space is planned. Services for the Underserved and Alembic Community Development are developing, while Peter Woll is the architect. Completion is expected in early 2016.

And YIMBY has the first look at the much more modest five-story rental building planned for 144 West Street, on the eastern side of the block.

Four Stories, Eight Residential Units Planned At 152 Sackman Street/2441 Dean Street, Ocean Hill

Property owner Yair Bohadana, operating as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, four-unit residential buildings at 152 Sackman Street and 2441 Dean Street, in Ocean Hill, located five blocks south of the J, Z, L, A, and C trains, as well as the East New York LIRR station. Combined, the buildings will total 6,166 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 771 square feet. Bakhtiar Shamloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Group Design is the architect of record, and the site’s two-story predecessor was demolished by the HDP in 2005.
