A deteriorating Brooklyn residential building could finally meet its end in the near future. Last Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission heard a proposal to demolish the three-story structure at 476 Washington Avenue, in Clinton Hill. However, the proposal for its replacement was not met with the commissioners’ approval.
In 2008, non-profit Pratt Area Community Council and BFC Partners finished construction on a six-story, 48-unit affordable building at 15 Quincy Street in Clinton Hill. Now a charter school may replace the low-income development between Classon and Grand Avenues, right next to the border with Bed-Stuy.
Since it stood two stories in height in April, the eight-story, 143-unit mixed-use building under development at 504 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Clinton Hill, has topped out. The latest photo comes via prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the project grew slightly compared to filings retrieved for YIMBY’s April update. The structure now encompasses 125,585 square feet and has gained two units (up from 141). The ground floor will host 20,304 square feet of retail space, while the floors above will contain rental apartments, averaging 736 square feet apiece. Twenty-eight of them will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Silverstone Property Group and Madison Capital Realty are the developers. HTO Architects is behind the architecture and completion is scheduled for 2017.
A rendering has been revealed of the six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building planned at 501 Myrtle Avenue, located on the corner of Ryerson Street in Clinton Hill. The image was spotted on-site by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. The latest building permits indicate the project, technically an expansion of the existing single-story building, will measure 13,088 square feet. It will include 1,882 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground and cellar levels. The residential units above should average 690 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include storage for five bikes, a “recreation room” on the second floor, a rooftop terrace. The developer is operating as an anonymous LLC and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architectural firm is designing.
Architectural firm Dache Design, doing business as an anonymous Montauk, N.Y.-based company, has filed applications for a three-story, single-family townhouse at 50 Clifton Place, located at the corner of Grand Avenue in Clinton Hill. It will measure 3,238 square feet, of which 2,375 square feet will be utilized as living space. The townhouse will be topped by a roof terrace. Nikolai Katz’s Battery Park City-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot property is currently vacant. The new building must be approved by the Landmark Preservation Commission, as the site sits within the Clinton Hill Historic District.
