Celebrated muralist and animator Mike Perry recently completed an enormous new mural spanning the first floor entry and communal areas of Sunset Yards. Located at 341 39th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, Sunset Yards will deliver 200,000 square feet of commercial space, ground-floor retail, and tenant amenities.
Last week, a proposal for a major new development at 6208 8th Avenue, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, began to wind its way through the City’s planning processes. Today, we have the exclusive first look at another mega-project proposed directly across the street, at 6205 8th Avenue, where DXA Studio has designed an enormous two-block plan that would cover even more of the open railway tracks that currently leave the neighborhood bereft of its obvious potential.
In exciting news for Sunset Park, plans for 6208 8th Avenue are now pushing closer to reality. A major proposal for the former railroad site in Brooklyn would create over one million square feet of mixed-use development. The structures would include commercial, residential, and community facility space. The site is next door to the 8th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N trains. Since YIMBY last checked in on progress, the design has not changed, but new information has now been released providing specific details for the proposal.
Sunset Park has seen a substantial amount of infill proposals in the past few months alone, and that trend is only set to continue, with plans now in the works for a commercial redevelopment at 617 62nd Street. Angelo + Anthony Ng’s Architects Studio NY will be designing the site, which will yield a five-story building with a fairly impressive envelope.
Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood has been brimming with infill developments both large and small as of late, and now, building applications have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use structure at 6307 4th Avenue. Plans list the Metropolitan New York Synod as the developer, and show the project will have a 7,600 square-foot community facility component, topped by 49,916 square feet of residential space, which will be divided amongst 73 units. Christine Hunter of Magnusson Architecture and Planning is listed as the architect, and the site is currently occupied by a two-story church building that must first be demolished.
