A piece of prime Williamsburg real estate at 150 North 12th Street has sat vacant, with only a foundation laid, since the recession swept away construction financing in 2008. But in the last few months, construction has re-started, and now YIMBY has a rendering for the seven-story rental building planned across the street from McCarren Park.
Joshua Dardashtian, of Pinnacle Real Estate Ventures, has filed applications for two four-story, multi-family residential buildings spanning the lots at 1506-1508 New York Avenue, in East Flatbush, near Brooklyn College. Each building will have nine apartments, averaging only 590 square feet apiece, which is strongly indicative of rentals. Sion Consulting Engineering is the applicant of record, and the site’s former 2.5-story structure was demolished this past May.
Blanca Otavalo, head of Fianzhin Builders Inc., has filed applications for two three-story residential buildings at 678-680 Jamaica Avenue, at the corner of Logan Street in Cypress Hills. Each building will have three residential units, averaging roughly 950 square feet apiece. Flavio Barros’ CB Engineering is the applicant of record, and a single-story garage structure must first be removed.
A Key Food at 946 Myrtle Avenue in northeastern Bed Stuy is set to give way to this seven-story apartment building designed by Karl Fischer. The architect filed a new building application last October, and now YIMBY has a rendering of the project headed for the southwestern corner of Myrtle and Throop Avenues.
Rents along Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights are heating up fast, and new residential construction is finally starting to catch up. YIMBY discovered this rendering on the fence at 730 Franklin Avenue, where a six-story apartment building is in the works.
