A non-profit that develops affordable homes is expanding its Bed-Stuy office building into a seven-story rental building. Neighborhood Housing Services of Bedford-Stuyvesant sent along plans to add five stories of affordable apartments to the two-story structure at 1012 Gates Avenue, close to Broadway and the border with Bushwick.
Central Harlem hasn’t seen quite as much development as the area southeast of 125th Street, but developers have finally started paying attention to the quiet and transit-rich blocks next to the City College campus. The latest project headed to the neighborhood is an 11-story residential building at 308 West 133rd Street, between St. Nicholas Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.
Back in April of this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 38-unit mixed-use building at 1930 Bedford Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and now an on-site sketch of the project has been posted, courtesy of photographer Tectonic. It will measure 38,236 square feet in total and will include 7,441 square feet of health care offices on the ground and second floors. Residential units begin on the third floor and should average 810 square feet apiece. Though two two wood-framed structures were demolished over the summer, construction has yet to begin. Nik Lavrinoff is developing and Z Architecture is designing.
Over the summer, news broke of Oxford Nursing Home’s planned eight-story, 200-bed nursing home at 141 Conover Street, in Red Hook. Now, DNAinfo has a rendering of the project, which will measure 157,500 square feet in total. The new building will include an urgent care center available to the community. The project must first pass ULURP, and with public meetings now kicking off, construction is expected to begin in late 2016. A number of small warehouse structures will have to be demolished.
When YIMBY checked in on the bluestone-clad condo building at 155 West 18th Street last month, windows were going in and the facade was snapping into place. Now, we have more renderings of the exterior and the apartments at the 11-story development.
