Major progress has been made for Brooklyn’s first supertall over the past several weeks. Excavation has continued apace, and more materials have also been delivered to 9 DeKalb Avenue as the year wraps up. The tower is the 6th-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown, and will dramatically change the skyline of Brooklyn in the coming years. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development and the Chetrit Group, the 1,066-foot-tall residential and mixed-use project will house approximately 500 housing units atop its rejuvenation of an historic retail podium.
Designed by SLCE Architects, 516 Schroeders Avenue is the one of the final phases of the Nehemiah Spring Creek development in East New York, and today YIMBY has a first look at renderings. The complete development arrives on the heels of an initiative to reinvigorate a predominantly low-income area of Brooklyn, New York, and spans nearly 45 acres of land.
BEL Community Housing Associates has released updated renderings of a new apartment building in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. Located at 1488 New York Avenue, the seven-story project will primarily function as a residence for senior citizens. A ground-floor community facility will provide services for those living in the apartments up above.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use development at 931 41st Street, in Borough Park, Brooklyn. Located between New Utrecht Avenue and 9th Avenue, the interior site is situated close to the 9th Avenue subway station, serviced by the D line. Chark Yung’s Brooklyn-based UPC Engineering is the applicant of record.
One of Brooklyn’s largest new developments has been proposed along Flatbush Avenue, at 625 Fulton Street, which could rise 941 feet to its rooftop. The site is a large trapezoidal piece of land just steps away from JDS Development’s 9 DeKalb Avenue. A major rezoning plan has been put forth that could potentially bring close to 1,800,000 gross square feet of mixed-use development to the nearly 89,000 square foot property, measuring about two acres in size. The site is bounded by Fulton Street to the south, Hudson Avenue to the west, DeKalb Avenue to the north, and Rockwell Place to the east.
