Borough Park | 123 Clara Street | FT | 6 FLOORS
Project: 123 Clara Street




The Orthodox community in Borough Park is one of the city’s fastest growing groups, and they’re building plenty of schools to educate their children. Today, YIMBY has the first look at one of these schools – the new headquarters for United Talmudical Academy at 123 Clara Street, on the corner of 36th Street.

Zambrano Architectural Design is responsible for the building, which will have a functional and fairly conservative brick facade. The five-story structure will feature a synagogue on the first floor, a mix of offices and classrooms on the upper stories, and a play area and “multipurpose room” on the top floor. There will also be a kitchen and dining room in the cellar and roof decks on the fourth and fifth floors. The main part of the building will have five stories, but a sixth, partially setback floor will add extra recreational and roof space.

Generally, new buildings there can’t reach more than four stories. However, the all-boys religious school secured a variance to build taller back in 2002, which is when it first filed permits. Then the school struggled to finance construction, and work didn’t begin until 2013. That year, the city agreed to extend the zoning variance to 2017, to prevent the new zoning from expiring before construction finishes.

Clinton Hill | 1044 Bedford Avenue | FT | 7 FLOORS
Project: 1044 Bedford Avenue




A 24-unit, seven-story apartment building is set to rise along Bedford Avenue, with construction expected to begin in December, according to a new developer who picked up the property.

1044 Bedford Holdings LLC bought the lot at 1044 Bedford Ave. in October for $5.26 million, according to city records. The company is a subsidiary of Manhattan-based commercial real estate development and investment firm Prime Rok Real Estate, representatives said.

he new building near the corner of Lafayette Avenue will cover a projected 24,253 square feet, Eatemadpour said, with a mix of one and two-bedroom rentals as well as duplexes on the ground floor.

There will be space for a roof deck, along with a lounge and gym on the bottom floor, he added.

Red Hook | 141 Conover Street | FT | 8 FLOORS
Project: 141 Conover Street




An eight-story, 200-bed nursing home proposed for Red Hook will be reviewed Thursday by Community Board 6's land use committee at a public hearing.

Oxford Nursing Home is hoping to build the facility at 141 Conover St. to replace its current operation at 144 South Oxford St. in Fort Greene.

The brand new 157,500 square-foot building between Sullivan and King streets would consist of long-and short-term bed space, about 50 parking spaces and an urgent care center that will be open to the community, project attorney Howard Weiss, of Davidoff, Hutcher & Citron said.

The projected budget for development of both the nursing home and the healthcare center is roughly $65 million, Weiss said.

Prospect Heights | 280 St. Marks Avenue | FT | 5 FLOORS
Project: 280 St. Marks Avenue




There's a new crop of condos on the rise in Prospect Heights, and—surprise!—they will not be cheap (this is kind of a trend). Located at 280 St. Marks Avenue between Underhill and Vanderbilt avenues, the 32 condos are being built on the site of a former garage. DXA Studio designed the five-story building, developed by DNA Development, and a partial rendering shows a zig-zagging facade of grey brick. The marketing team says that every unit will have private outdoor space (yard, balcony, or terrace). There will be one- to five-bedroom apartments, and prices will range from $899,000 to $2.499 million.

Prospect Park | 187-191 Prospect Park West and 496-498 14th Street | FT | 2 X 5 FLOORS
Project: 187-191 Prospect Park West and 496-498 14th Street





Park Slope’s 1928 Pavilion cinema will see a new life alongside residential units, thanks to approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday. The cinema at 188 Prospect Park West (officially 187-191 Prospect Park West and 496-498 14th Street) will be reduced in size and a new residential building will replace the one-story structure next to it at 192-194 Prospect Park West. The proposal was first presented in August, but the commissioners generally wanted a reduced scale.

As in August, the presentation was made by architect Morris Adjmi and by Ward Dennis of the preservation firm Higgins Quasebarth & Partners. A big problem last time around was the size of the fifth floor. It will now be set back six feet meaning the cornice line will continue from the existing neighboring building. Additionally, the cornice has a more prominent design than before. The height of the sixth floor has also been reduced from 12 feet to 10 feet. The ground floor openings have been lifted and modified to seem more like part of a residential building and less like retail openings. The windows have also been changed to two over two. On the cinema building itself, the rooftop addition, meant to echo the tradition of rooftop gardens over theaters, is now more articulated so as to better accomplish that goal.

Kensington | 622 Ocean Parkway | FT | 8 FLOORS
Project: 622 Ocean Parkway



Developers David and Yusuf Bildrici bought the four-story brick apartment building at 622 Ocean Parkway, near the southern edge of Kensington and its border with Midwood, in 2005, paying $2.1 million for the 16-unit building.

And in 2012, their architect, Bojidar Kadiev, submitted an application to add three stories and 10 apartmenst to the building. Its height would rise from 50 feet to 75 feet, while its 14,000 square feet of existing space would increase by more than 50 percent, rising to more than 22,000 square feet, or 8,300 new square feet for the 10 new units.

The red brick cladding of the addition matches that of the original structure, as do the fire escapes on the 18th Avenue side. There are some differences – the lintels above the window are rectangular rather than rounded, and there are some balconies – but overall it’s a relatively faithful add-on to the pre-war building.

At 1776 Prospect Place, pictured above and after the jump, the demo work started in May and was signed off on in October. An application for a new six-story building with 101 apartments was disapproved this month. The building that previously stood there was 15 stories.

The area immediately around the public housing sites consists of empty lots or empty apartment buildings, adding up to about eight desolate lots on two and a half blocks between Saratoga and Howard avenues and Prospect and Sterling places, close to Eastern Parkway in Ocean Hill.

Stuyvesant East | 447 Decatur Street | FT | 5 FLOORS
Project: 447 Decatur Street




One of many new developments that Boaz Gilad's Brookland Capital is currently planning in Brooklyn is this four-story structure at 447 Decatur Street, at the edge of the proposed (and long-shelved) Stuyvesant East Historic District. The Stuyvesant East Preservation Action League describes the district as "one of New York's most intact 19th century enclaves, with over 95 percent of its original buildings still present and, for the most part, still functioning in their originally intended roles." The block that 447 Decatur sits on is a mix of brick buildings, stately brownstones, and a few row houses. The planned building, however, appears to be a mix of brick, metal, and, predominantly, glass. Clearly, architects Arc Architecture + Design Studio did not take any cues from the surrounding architecture (this, apparently, being one of the blocks that Gilad has deemed not beautiful enough to communicate with).

Borough Park | 1560 60th Street | FT | 6 FLOORS
Project: 1560 60th Street



According to plans filed, the development would include 13 separate structures of six stories each with a total of 128 housing units spread over nearly 230,000 square feet of space – large apartments, averaging nearly 1,800 square feet each, targeted towards the Hasidic families that predominate in this corner of Brooklyn.

Nassau County-based John Schimenti P.C. Architect is responsible for the design (not Karl Fischer, as the Environmental Assessment had indicated), and Abe Leser’s Mapleton Group LLC, based locally in Borough Park, is the developer. (He picked up the parcels after the rezoning, in the spring of 2013, for $17.5 million, or about $75 per buildable square foot.)

The developer is Eli Nahman, who paid $3,487,500 for the property in October 2013. Demolition applications have been filed but not approved for the existing building, a single-story garage.

Project: 120 Union Avenue




Here’s a first look at the rendering for a six-story rental building planned for 120 Union Avenue in Williamsburg’s Broadway Triangle. Aufgang Architects is designing the project, which will have 96 apartments spread across nearly 70,000 square feet, according to new building applications filed in September. Apartments will range from studios to four-bedrooms, and there will be 1,750 square feet of retail and 65 parking spots.

Cobble Hill | 287 Pacific Street | FT | 5 FLOORS
Project: 287 Pacific Street




The 10 apartments will be spread over 9,300 square feet of space for a unit average of 930 square feet, with three roomier apartments at the top, including a duplex, and more modest ones beneath. The lack of PTAC units and two-car garage on the ground level suggest to us that it will be condos rather than rentals.

Issac & Stern are the architects for the project (this is the fourth building of theirs this week that we’ve revealed), and the design is a contemporary combination of light stone and dark brick. The five-story building will be a good deal taller than the three-story 19th century structures next to it, but the setback above the third floor creates continuity with the building to the right.

Bed-Stuy | 1229 Atlantic Avenue | FT | 8 FLOORS
Project: 1229 Atlantic Avenue



A La Quinta Inn is coming to 1229 Atlantic Avenue near Nostrand, where excavation and foundation work recently began at the large, now vacant lot on the Crown Heights/Bed Stuy border. We found this schematic on the fence after leaving the post office next door. The hotel will rise seven stories with 102 rooms, according to new building permits approved in February.

The 34,902-square-foot building will also feature four off-street parking spaces, a recreation room, lounge, meeting and conference rooms. Hotel plans have been in the works since May 2012, when an LLC snagged the 8,440-square-foot property for $1,600,000 and filed initial new building applications. Askon Architects P.C. is designing the building. The La Quinta will join a few other hotels nearby on Atlantic, including a Best Western on the other side of Nostrand, the Hotel Luxe and the Atlantic Motor Inn.

Borough Park | 886 Dahill Road | FT | 10 FLOORS
Project: 886 Dahill Road




A Brooklyn development team that went through the slog of the city’s ULURP process and came out the other end is listing its shovel-ready, 171-unit Borough Park development site for $38 million. But some red tape still trails behind. Brothers Edward and Martin Wydra are looking for a buyer for their site at 886 Dahill Road in Borough Park, which comes with plans pre-approved by the city and a design drawn up by architect Karl Fischer for a 314,000 square-foot, mixed-use building. “You could be in the ground immediately,” said Sean Kelly, who along with a team of colleagues at CPEX Real Estate is marketing the site for $38 million. The Wydra brothers, who were behind the Gretsch Building condo conversion in Williamsburg, bought the 1.5-acre site on the far side of Prospect Park for $25.3 million in 2007, property records show. This is the second time the brothers are listing the property, having previously put it on the market two years ago asking $33 million.

Williamsburg | 338 Berry Street | FT | 8 FLOORS
Project: 338 Berry Street




Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund took to his Instagram page today to announce the launching of the teaser site for 338 Berry Street, a condo conversion in Williamsburg that will henceforth be known as...oh man...Williamsberry. In a borough where more and more buildings are giving themsleves really silly names, Williamsberry might take the cake, and then cover that cake with Williamsberry-flavored icing because Williamsberry sounds like a kind of jam. Or a Froyo store. Or a butler from an Edwardian novel. Williamsberry, fetch the silver! The Duke approaches!

According to recent permits, which developer Mona Gora (a.k.a. Very Berry, LLC) was finally able to file after getting rid of those pesky existing tenants, the seven-story former noodle factory will be enlarged by one floor and will contain 54 units, which Eklund reveals will be priced from $575,000 to $3.5 million and up for the three penthouses. From the rendering it looks like the rumored solar panels are still in play.

DUMBO | 10 Jay Street | FT | 10 FLOORS
Project: 10 Jay Street (Facade/Renovation)




The 10-story building at 10 Jay Street is finally headed for a makeover and residential conversion. Since the building sits within the Dumbo Historic District, the Landmarks Preservation Commission heard a proposal this week for an ambitious new facade for the building. ODA Architecture outlined plans for a glass and steel, sugar crystal-inspired front for the East River-facing side of the building, as well as a restoration of the building's other three faces. The LPC approved of the latter, but ultimately decided that the "striking" design was not a fit for the historic district.

Williamsburg | 34 Conselyea Street | 4 FLOORS
Project: 34 Conselyea Street




In 2010, a brick building on Conselyea Street in Williamsburg collapsed, injuring workers as they were attempting to add an extra floor and penthouse. Now mysterious developer Conselyea Residence LLC and architect Yossi Melamed are planning a completely new condo building on the site, which is between Union and Lorimer and extremely close to the BQE. Permits show it will have four stories with a total of 3,696 square feet of residential space. Melamed passed along the first renderings for a revived 34 Conselyea, and they're definitely modern. The first floor will house a duplex with a rec room and a two-tier yard, while the second and third floors will have 2BR/2BA apartments with rear balconies. The top-floor unit will have a rear terrace and higher ceiling heights.

I am largely against Orthodox development. No I am not racist (Jewish myself) but out of most developments, I feel Orthodox developments are most corrupt. In Borough Park two houses were purposely set on fire to make way for around 50 unit apartment house that is illegally segregated. The same thing happened for several other developments around the area. By the way that was where I used to live.

Williamsburg | 139 Meserole Street | 6 FLOORS
Project: 139 Meserole Street




The firm describes the project on their website:

Reminiscent of early Brooklyn’s wood frame row houses, 139 Meserole is a modern adaptation of early Williamsburg. With an exterior designed with a zinc shingle facade and reclaimed cedar sun shades, the interior boasts thoughtful finishes and details though-out – including live sawn white oak planks, recycled subway tiles, honed Calcutta marble, and a living green, landscaped building canopy.

The six-story building will have eight apartments spread across just over 10,000 square feet of net residential space, with one unit and one parking space on the ground floor (which we don’t see in the rendering), two on floors two through four, and then a pair of duplexes occupying the fifth and sixth floors.

East Williamsburg | 630 Lorimer Street | 4 FLOORS
Project: 630 Lorimer Street




East Williamsburg is finally getting a few interesting buildings, between this small one and the HWKN-designed Yotel just down the street. At 630 Lorimer Street, ODA Architecture has replaced Gerald Caliendo as the architect of record, and we found this rendering attached to the fence.

It doesn’t look like ODA’s work, but it doesn’t look like the usual small ‘Burg building either. We see large, multi-paned windows, a green wall, and balconies hidden behind a masonry (concrete?) screen covering the front of the building.

Permits call for four stories and eight units. Inside, it looks like the foundation is under construction, though we couldn’t get a good look. (The photo after the jump shows only a fraction of the site.) The sign on the fence said construction should wrap in December 2015.

Crown Heights | 1535 Bedford Avenue | 8 FLOORS
Project: 1535 Bedford Avenue




According to the building permit application, the project will have 133 apartments – clearly rentals – spread over a bit more than 91,000 square feet of residential space, for an average unit size of just under 690 square feet – about as small as the zoning code will allow for new buildings. The second and third floors will have 28 apartments each, with larger units up top (floors four through six have 17 units each, with 13 on the top two floors).

Of the 133 apartments, 20 percent – roughly 27 – will be designated as affordable and set aside to be rented at below-market rates, according to The Real Deal.

The housing units will sit atop 15,000 square feet of retail space in what is technically the basement and cellar areas (which explains why the building is technically only eight stories, but appears in the rendering as nine or 10).

Crown Heights | 1312 Lincoln Place | 6 FLOORS
Project: 1312 Lincoln Place



ne such project can be found at 1312 Lincoln Place. Applications for a pair of new six-story buildings were submitted towards the end of last year, for 1308 and 1314 Lincoln Place (called No. 1312 on the rendering we’ve obtained). The site is on the narrow two-lane street just a block north of Eastern Parkway, mid-block between Schenectady and Utica avenues.

The pair of buildings is planned to have 26 apartments between them, spread over a bit more than 17,000 square feet of residential space, for an average unit size of around 660 square feet – the minimum allowed by zoning and normally indicative of rentals, although in the past Gilad has focused on condos, and the design as rendered lacks the PTAC units beneath the windows that normally mark properties as rentals.

The design is attractive enough, although the ground floor, dominated by parking, leaves something to be desired. Unfortunately, the architects (Feingold & Gregory are on the permit, but RoArt appears to be the design architect) didn’t have much choice – the zoning code requires parking (14 spaces will be included, the minimum allowed) and disallows ground-floor retail, leaving the developer with no economical choice other than to build the first floors as parking garages.

The development site was acquired in May of last year for a bit over $2 million, or around $120 per buildable square foot.

Park Slope | 443 Bergen Street | FT | 9 FLOORS
Project: 443 Bergen Street



The striking infill going up at 443 Bergen Street in Park Slope — a sliver of a Passive House with a solar panel covering most of the facade — is still under construction. From the outside, not much appears to have changed since we checked it out in May. Construction was supposed to wrap last summer, according to the construction fence, so we assume they’ve been busy finishing the interior.

The solar panel — which some commenters said is more style than substance since it would catch more energy on the roof — dominates the house. There is also some raw-looking wide wood cladding, windows, and a little bit of stucco.

East Flatbush | 1295 Nostrand Avenue | 8 FLOORS
Project: 1295 Nostrand Avenue (Aka 310 Clarkson)



Hudson Companies just sent us this new rendering (above and below) for the 170-unit building they are planning at the corner of Nostrand and Clarkson avenues in East Flatbush. The architect for 1295 Nostrand Avenue, also known as 310 Clarkson, is Jonathan Kirschenfeld, of Floating Pool fame.

The parcel down the street Hudson just closed on (see our 9:30 am post today) will be a separate building. That one will have about 250 apartments, and the architect will be CetraRuddy, a Hudson exec told us.

Both buildings will have retail on the ground floor. The first project will break ground before the end of the spring. The project down the block at 318-350 Clarkson Avenue will break ground in 2016, Hudson told us. Both deals were brokered by CPEX, incidentally.

We think the design for 1295 Nostrand/310 Clarkson is one of the most attractive for a new building in Brooklyn we’ve seen in years. Sure, it’s a big apartment building and not row houses, but there are lots of apartment buildings out here already. The brick and windows should fit in nicely with the area, and we like the stores at ground level.

Bed-Stuy | 1060 Bedford Avenue | FT | 5 FLOORS
Project: 1060 Bedford Avenue



Now for the details: The 22,474 square foot building will have 24 apartments as well as ground floor retail, a gym, a lounge and space to store 16 bicycles according to the original permit application. However that application was disapproved in December.

The lot was originally put on the market for $5,500,000 in July of 2013. It sold a year later for $4,645,000. The garage on the site has been knocked down but the developer still has to remove contaminated soil and fuel tanks.

When we first posted about the sale, commenters were excited about the possibility of the ground floor retail space- — particularly for a tenant like Duane Reade.

But new apartment buildings in Bed Stuy have lately come under fire from local residents and preservationists who say they don’t fit in well with Bed Stuy’s historic architecture.

Developers are snapping up lots near the BQE in East Williamsburg every chance they get, and now the increasingly pricey hood will get a six-story mixed-use apartment building at 387 Manhattan Avenue. New building applications were filed today for the 18,429-square-foot development, which will fill a vacant lot between Frost and Withers Streets, half a block from the highway and Meeker Avenue.

The first floor will feature nearly 5,000 square feet of retail, and offices for a community facility will occupy 7,000 square feet on the second and third floors. Finally, the fourth through sixth floors will have 12 rental apartments—ten one-bedrooms and two studios—as well as a roof terrace. They’ll be divided across 10,958 square feet of residential space, making the average unit about 913 square feet.

The architect is Design Studio Associates, and permits list the developer as Nick Malafis of North South Slope LLC, though on-site signage indicates it is actually Prospect Construction Corp. 236 17th Street will total 19,993 square feet, which will be divided between 17 residences for an average unit size of almost 1,200 square feet, likely indicating condos.

The Schedule A shows seven parking spaces on the sub-level and five on the first floor, with three units per floor from levels two through six, and two residences splitting the penthouse floor.

While the overall design is an upgrade compared to the currently vacant lot, the building lacks ground-floor retail space. Onerous parking requirements are the cause, forcing the developer to dedicate the lower levels of the project to twelve spaces, exactly the number required by the zoning code.

Greenpoint | 137 Bayard Street | 6 FLOORS
Project: 137 Bayard Street



New building applications were first filed back in 2013 for the building, which will rise six stories with 27 apartments. They’ll be divided across 18,222 square feet of residential space, for an average apartment size of only 674 square feet. Since the units are smaller than 700 square feet, these are likely rentals. There will be three apartments on the first floor, four each on floors two through five, and four apartments on the top floor.

Several apartments on the upper floors will feature balconies, which appear to be made of a copper-colored metal that matches the ground floor facade. The rest of the front will be clad in gray facade panels, and contrasting dark and light brick will cover the side walls.

The development will also have 2,100 square feet of off-street parking for 14 cars and 14 bike storage spaces in the cellar.

East New York | 465 Washington Street | FT | 9 FLOORS
Project: 465 Washington Street




Project architect Zakrzewski + Hyde is doubling the size of the existing five-story building to create space for seven zero-net-waste condominiums. The building will also feature a roof deck on a sixth-floor recess.

Zakrzewski + Hyde also has their hands in a Brooklyn passive house project at 852 St. John's Place in Crown Heights. Developer Justin Stewart, also behind 23 Park Place, is building a five-story, seven-apartment building on the site between Nostrand and New York avenues that will replace a run-down three-story building.

Sheepshead Bay | 1809 Emmons Avenue | FT | 8 FLOORS
Project: 1809 Emmons Avenue




Renderings released Tuesday by Rybak Development at a Community Board 15 meeting show the developer is planning an ambitious mall with condos above as well as a large public plaza in Sheepshead Bay.

The glass-fronted retail space is broken up with zig zagging and horizontal concrete divisions, and the whole thing comes to nearly a point at one corner, like the prow of a ship. (Perhaps the marine look is a reference to the nearby waterfront area.) The architect of 1809 Emmons Avenue is Brooklyn-based Zproekt.

The renderings were first published by Sheepshead Bites. The developer plans eight stories with 50 to 60 condos. Rybak will need a zoning variance to build that many apartments, which is where the big public plaza comes in.

The building is set back from the surrounding streets by a 9,000 square foot landscaped public plaza with seating. “This plaza is going to drastically and dramatically change the look and feel of the neighborhood,” the developer told Sheepshead Bites in December. The plaza takes up a quarter of the entire property, and will have raised planters, ambiance lighting and parking for bicycles.

Williamsburg | 125 Borinquen Place | FT | 7 FLOORS
Project: 125 Borinquen Place




A seven-story, 133-unit residential development is planned for 125 Borinquen Place near the BQE in Williamsburg, according to a plan exam application filed last month. The mixed-use building will have 89,205 square feet of residential space, 977 square feet of commercial space and 68 enclosed parking spaces. DJLU Architect is the architect of record. The L-shaped corner lot still houses a one-story building, and the DOB has not approved demo applications for it.

Bed-Stuy | 437 Herkimer Street | FT | FLOORS
Project: 437 Herkimer Street




A new affordable housing complex with two-bedroom rentals starting at $573-a-month — as well as units for individuals with mental health issues — is set to open in Bedford-Stuyvesant this summer.

Supportive housing group The Bridge will operate the 53-unit building at 437 Herkimer St. and recently opened a public lottery for 20 two-bedroom apartments.

Crown Heights | 267 Rogers Avenue | FT | 5 FLOORS
Project: 267 Rogers Avenue




Development south of Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights has yet to take off like development in the northern part of the neighborhood, but one of the first big new buildings is currently rising on Rogers Avenue. Situated between Crown and Carroll streets, the property at 267 Rogers Avenue used to hold a church. But that is long gone, and a five-story, 165-unit apartment building designed by Think Architecture and Design is taking the church's place. A Curbed operative sent a recent photo, and noted that the new building, which is now up to the third floor, is rising quickly.

Cobble Hill | 70 Atlantic Avenue | 89 FT | 5 FLOORS
Project: 70 Atlantic Avenue aka 339 Hicks Street




Perkins Eastman is designing the facility, which will span a gross 160,000 square feet over five floors. The building will stand 89 feet tall, shorter than the 12-story structure that currently occupies the site.

• A new emergency department on the first floor, which will include two inpatient beds for those who need to stay the night, as well as 10 patient bays, two resuscitation room, two triage rooms, a decontamination room, and 12 other treatment spaces.

• An outpatient surgery center on the third floor, with four operating rooms and two endoscopy rooms (that’s where they stick a camera up or down one of your orifices).

• A cancer center on the fourth floor with space for 22 patients, plus a pharmacy, and a laboratory.

• A diagnostic imaging center — for X-rays and other tech that looks inside patients — on the cellar level of the new building.

Greenpoint | 47-16 Greenpoint Avenue | FT | 5 FLOORS
Project: 47-16 Greenpoint Avenue




The first floor would contain nearly 6,400 square feet of retail space, with 6,200 square feet of as-of-yet undetermined community facility space – though medical offices are always popular – on the second floor.

Rental apartments would sit on the third and fourth floors, with five on each floor spread over a total of nearly 7,800 square feet of residential space, for units that will average 780 square feet.

Livingston, N.J.-based Jarmel Kizel Architects will be responsible for design.

brutalist revival?

Williamsburg: 79 Quay Street - 6 fl.

http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/01/new-look-79-quay-street-greenpoint.html

[...]
The combined old and new structures will hold 64 apartments, ranging from duplex studios to three-bedrooms. The development is technically an expansion, not a new building, and it will triple the size of the old warehouse. Also, the 61,000-square-foot complex will include a large, shared roof deck and parking for 35 cars in the cellar and on the ground floor.

The building will also include some below-market units, in exchange for a zoning bonus that boosts the building’s floor area by 11,500 square feet.

Cycle Architecture + Planning designed this project, and it’s their second one with Cayuga Capital.
