Nearly a year ago, YIMBY revealed renderings of the 17-story, 275-unit condominium building planned at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue, in Prospect Heights, and this past summer we posted interior images of the building’s lobby and common areas. Construction is now well underway, and the structure is currently five stories tall, per the latest from Tectonic. A partnership between Greenland Group and Forest City Ratner is developing the building, which is one of many in their Pacific Park development. COOKFOX is designing, and completion is expected in 2017.
Back in June, YIMBY brought you news of construction beginning on Greenland Forest City Partners’ 23-story and 303-unit mixed-use building at 38 Sixth Avenue, in Prospect Heights, which marked their fourth building to break ground at the Pacific Park redevelopment. Now, applications have been filed for a building right across the street at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street, which will also house a public school. Applications call for a 26-story structure totaling 342,788 square feet. The school will measure 69,858 square feet from the sub-cellar through the sixth floors, and the building’s upper portion, starting on the sixth floor, will hold 323 apartments, averaging 848 square feet apiece.
Back in December, Slate Property Group bought the former Green Point Savings Bank at 856 Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights for $6,500,000. Now new building applications have been filed to erect a 14-story condo project on the site between Lincoln Place and Eastern Parkway.
Last month, YIMBY reported on filings for two new buildings at 731 and 733 Bergen Street, between Underhill and Washington Avenues in Prospect Heights. Now we’ve got the first look at what will rise on the empty lot, which sits right next to Brookland Capital’s newly finished condos at 735 Bergen.
Excavation is imminent at 816 Washington Avenue, in Prospect Heights, where ELH Management is planning a five-story, eight-unit mixed-use building, according to Brownstoner. Located two blocks north of the Brooklyn Museum stop on the 2/3 trains, the eight apartments will be rented at below-market rates, and 3,135 square feet of retail space will span the ground floor. Dattner is designing, and the site’s former rent-regulated predecessor burnt down in 2010.
