Leasing has begun for two timber buildings being built at 320 and 360 Wythe Avenue, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The projects are making history by way of construction materials, and will become the first new developments in over a century to be built in New York City with a timber structure. Hansen Architects, established in 1945, will be responsible for the design.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 43-46 39th Place, in Sunnyside, Queens. The site is a block from the 40th Street-Lowery Street Station, serviced by the 7 train.

The first permits are up for a ten-story mixed-use building at 98 Front Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
