Permits have been filed for a six-story hotel at 9114 5th Avenue, in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn. The site is four blocks away from the Fort Hamilton Triangle 95th Street subway station, end of the line for R trains. Bayridge Realty LLC will be responsible for the development.
Construction of the two-structure TWA Hotel, flanking the historic TWA terminal, has made significant progress since our last update in December. Photos from the site reveal that one of the hotel towers is nearly fully covered with its façade, and that the second tower has topped-out.
With 175 Greenwich Street nearing its opening day and 200 Greenwich Street hopefully expected to begin construction within the next few years, most of the World Trade Center’s rebuilding is nearing completion. But one major hole in Downtown’s fabric still remains, at the site of the former Deutsche Bank Building. Plans for a pot-bellied skyscraper had been proposed around the time of the tower’s demolition, but in the years since, the plot had seemingly been forgotten, and is currently covered in asphalt. Today, YIMBY has a major update on the site, thanks to zombified plans from Chinese developer Dalian Wanda Group, which would yield a new residential and hotel supertall designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.
Permits were filed back in July of 2016 for a new hotel at 1548 Bedford Avenue, in Crown Height, Brooklyn. Though construction has not yet started, new renderings by ODA have revealed a daring, low-slung arched building adorned with a dark concrete façade. The hotel is located just two blocks away from the Franklin Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains. The Botanic Garden subway station is one block further, serviced by the Shuttle trains.
Permits have been filed for a 26-story hotel and residential tower at 159 Broadway, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Rising above the Williamsburg Bridge’s final stretch in Brooklyn, the structure would be a highly visible addition to the neighborhood. The J, M, and Z trains all ride just past the site. Their first stop in Brooklyn, Marcy Avenue, is just four blocks away. Cornell Realty will be responsible for the development, after purchasing the site for $26.2 million.
