Building applications have been filed for a substantial new development at 5102 4th Avenue, in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood. The structure will stand eight stories tall, and span a total construction area of about 72,000 square feet. Within that, 42,233 square feet will be dedicated to residential space, and 12,442 square feet will be allotted for a new community facility, in this case, a library. The library will span the cellar, first, and second floors, while the residential portion will also begin on the second floor. The project’s 50 apartments will average about 840 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Magnusson Architecture and Planning is the architect, and HPD is the site’s developer.
Back in 2014, YIMBY reported on the unveiling of plans for a massive new mixed-use project at 6208 8th Avenue, in Brooklyn. The site lies on the boundary of Sunset Park and Dyker Heights, and in November of 2014, Community Board 10 voted against recommending the project move forward (though that is ultimately only advisory to City Planning). Three years later, work has yet to begin, but the plans have now seen major adjustments and a complete reconfiguration.

The administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to transform multiple industrial buildings at Bush Terminal, located on First Avenue between 41st and 43rd streets in Sunset Park, into a multi-building manufacturing and film production hub, called Made In New York.

NYU Langone Medical Center is planning an outpatient cancer clinic at 5718 Second Avenue, located between 57th and 58th streets in Sunset Park. The new facility will be a center for chemotherapy and radiation therapies, Crain’s reported. The existing two-story, 28,700-square-foot commercial building at the site will be gut-renovated to accommodate the clinic. The building will receive a new façade, as well, NYU Langone revealed to YIMBY, although the final design remains a work in progress. Building permits to renovate the structure have not been applied for at this time. The property was acquired in the spring of 2016 for $12.1 million.
