City Planning Commission Expected to Approve Eight-Story Office Building Planned at 25 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg

In early January, the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) kicked off for Heritage Equity Partners’ planned eight-story, 400,000-square-foot office/manufacturing building at 25 Kent Avenue, in northern Williamsburg. Now, the City Planning Commission is expected to support rezoning the block for the project, Crain’s reports. But the approval comes at the expense of the proposed neighborhood rezoning, which would establish an “Enhanced Business District” over most of the North Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone (IBZ), allowing for the surrounding blocks to be developed similar to 25 Kent Avenue. The rezoning would grant developers a boost in allowed commercial FAR in exchange for the inclusion of light manufacturing space, identical to a normal community facility FAR bonus. City Planning is expected to approve the application later this month, at which point the City Council will vote on the project. Mayor Bill de Blasio will complete the ULURP review if he decides to sign off on City Council’s pending approval. Rubenstein Partners is partnered in the project, and Gensler and Hollwich Kushner Architecture (a.k.a HWKN) is designing.


178 Flatbush Avenue

Three-Story, 18,000-Square-Foot Office Building Filed at 178 Flatbush Avenue, Park Slope

Property owner Joseph Zelik has filed applications for a three-story, 17,882-square-foot office building at 178 Flatbush Avenue, in northern Park Slope, located two blocks from the Atlantic Av-Barclays Center stop on the 2/3/4/5/B/D/N/Q/R trains and Atlantic Terminal. According to the Schedule A, the entire building will host office space and, unfortunately, won’t contain ground-floor retail, though that could always change. Joseph Spector’s Financial District-based Dome Architecture, Design, and Engineering Group is the architect of record. The lot, at the corners of Fifth Avenue and Dean Street, is currently occupied by a single-story commercial building with multiple tenants. Demolition permits were filed in April to remove the building.


150 Park Avenue

Five-Story, 130,000-Square-Foot Medical Building Planned at 150 Park Avenue, Florham Park, New Jersey

Back in March, developers broke ground on a five-story, 256-unit residential complex at 90 Park Avenue, in the North Jersey community of Florham Park. Now, located in the same business park Green at Florham Park, a five-story, 130,000-square-foot medical office building is being planned at 150 Park Avenue. Summit Medical Group and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center recently signed a lease at the property, which will be home to a cancer treatment center. The Rockefeller Group, the same developer that built the residential project at 90 Park, is developing the medical facility. The building will be located roughly 1.5 miles from NJ Transit’s Madison station, although a large parking lot is also planned.
