The last time we reported on 190 South 1st Street, YIMBY had the opportunity to go on a tour of the construction site. Now, we have images of the nearly-completed 13-story building, and the final look is strikingly close to what’s depicted in the renderings. The brutalist concrete facade is well balanced from the tower portion, all the way down to the community facility space along Driggs Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a new seven-story condominium building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The project would replace a three-story residential structure. The site is four blocks away from the Gates Avenue subway station on Broadway, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Plenty of restaurants and shops dominate the vicinity, including a grocery store.
The Upper West Side doesn’t often see major new residential developments, especially of the affordable variety, which is why HPD’s plans for 145 West 108th Street, on behalf of the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, are somewhat surprising. Dattner Architects will be designing, and today, YIMBY has the first images of what the two-building project will look like.
Permits have been filed for a new hotel at 2201 Neptune Avenue, in Coney Island. Guests will be ten blocks away from the D, F, N, and Q trains at the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station. The building will be located right on Coney Island Creek, providing guests with views of Brooklyn, Staten Island, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. SWA Architecture, a Manhattan-based firm, will design the seven-story structure.
Permits have been filed for a new building at the PS 129 Patricia Larkin School, located at 128-02 7th Avenue, in College Point, Queens. The proposal would be three stories tall, and located on the same campus, which takes up a whole city block. Whether it would be built at the expense of an existing structure or an open area is not yet clear.
