Two years after permits were filed, the first piece of the massive 700-unit rental project at 363-365 Bond Street along the Gowanus Canal is getting its windows and brick facade.
Foundation work is currently underway at 1700 Broadway, in Ocean Hill, where a six-story, 79-unit mixed-use building is planned, a block from the J/Z train’s stop at Chauncey Street. According to Brownstoner, the building — being developed by SUS and Alembic Community Development — will be 100% affordable, and will feature 4,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Peter Woll is the architect of record, and completion is expected in 2016.
As the clock ticks down to the start of the city’s East New York rezoning process in the fall, YIMBY has noticed an uptick in market-rate filings on the soon-to-be-valuable real estate around Broadway Junction. And now plans are in the works for three small apartment buildings at 62-68 Somers Street, just beyond the western patch of Ocean Hill that’s about to be rezoned.
In the borderlands between East New York, Brownsville and Ocean Hill, one developer is planning supportive housing on an industrial block that the city plans to rezone for residential. New building applications were filed today for a six-story development at 2414a Atlantic Avenue, between Sackman Street and East New York Avenue.
Slate Property Group is one of Williamsburg’s most prolific developers at the moment, from big rental projects like 120 Union Avenue to boutique condo buildings like the one YIMBY can reveal today at 21 Powers Street.
