    I wonder what de Blasio's version of "affordable" is compared to residents in East New York.

    ...more affordable version of areas like Downtown Brooklyn and Williamsburg.
    Has he seen the residential prices in these neighborhoods lately?


    De Blasio Administration Targets Outer Borough Neighborhoods for Development

    By Ross Barkan

    Are the next hot neighborhoods East New York, Flushing West and Cromwell-Jerome? The de Blasio administration hopes so.

    Carl Weisbrod, the direct of the Department of City Planning, testified at a City Council hearing today that the three areas will all be targeted for Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ambitious housing plan, which seeks to develop and preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing.

    “To fulfill this ambitious goal, the Department of City Planning … will commence planning studies in neighborhoods in all five boroughs, in locations where we believe the potential exists to create new capacity mixed-income housing,” Mr. Weisbrod testified at a hearing, long postponed, on the mayor’s affordable housing plan.

    He noted that in September, DCP launched a study, in partnership with Council members Vanessa Gibson and Fernando Cabrera, of the area surrounding Cromwell and Jerome Avenues in the Bronx. The 57-block alley, chock full of parking lots, auto shops and self-storage facilities, would be rezoned for residential and retail development.

    Mr. Weisbrod also announced at the hearing that a similar study will be launched of Flushing West, an area to the west of booming downtown Flushing, Queens. The less developed area also includes public housing and will be studied in partnership with Councilman Peter Koo, the neighborhood’s representative, Mr. Weisbrod said. It’s an area “many advocacy groups and other community stakeholders have been active in for some time,” he said, not offering any details from his testimony about the development.

    East New York, a transit-rich, low-income neighborhood in eastern Brooklyn, is one place the de Blasio administration hopes to transform into a vibrant, more affordable version of areas like Downtown Brooklyn and Williamsburg. Mr. Weisbrod said the administration has been meeting with local elected officials and the Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation to develop a “framework for growth.”

    Mr. Weisbord said “thousands” of units of new mixed-income and affordable housing–he didn’t say how many units exactly–would be built in the far-flung neighborhood, along with “much needed retail, jobs and services.” Density will also be coming to the area, he said.

    “Stakeholders recognize the need for this density to achieve all of the community’s objectives including affordable housing,” Mr. Weisbrod said. “And the Department [of City Planning] understands the city’s obligation to produce the timely infrastructure and services increase density requires.”

    The city’s affordable housing plan has not always pleased Mr. de Blasio’s progressive base. Some advocates slammed the Astoria Cove development in Queens for not including enough affordable units while others have questioned whether the mayor is fudging numbers by taking credit for projects begun under his predecessor, Michael Bloomberg.

    Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, a close ally of Mr. de Blasio’s, expressed concern at the hearing today that the plan would focus too much on building at the expense of preserving existing affordable housing stock, potentially ushering in another round of gentrification across the city.

    “The idea of bringing on any new units that could add to the pressure of an already delicate situation, I’m wary of,” she said.

    The new design better accentuates the divide between the three buildings at the cornice level.


    0/10 for those "cornices".



    Brooklyn Heights Is Getting Three New Townhouses

    by Evan Bindelglass



    Three brand-spanking-new townhouses are headed to Brooklyn Heights, thanks to Tuesday's vote by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The LPC approved a proposal to build on a lot at 295-299 Hicks Street, between State and Joralemon streets, that has been vacant since the 1940s. The development first came before the LPC in September, but the commission thought the design was "awkward" and asked for changes.



    LPC chair Meenakshi Srinivasan found the applicant's changes "very responsive" to the concerns raised when the project, designed by Krista Demirdache of Nikolai Katz Architect, was first presented back on September 23.



    The new design better accentuates the divide between the three buildings at the cornice level. Also, the bay windows on the second floor have been relocated to the first floor with the center unit's bay window being eliminated to create an A/B/A relationship between the townhouses. The windows themselves are also now narrower and shorter. The entrances were also changed. They stand out less now.



    Srinivasan said the applicant looked carefully at the details and found it "consistent" with the neighborhood. Commissioner Frederick Bland, who is happy to remind you that he lives in Brooklyn Heights, said they could have gone with a more contemporary design, but instead went with a "more traditional" one and that the result is "quite attractive." Commissioner John Gustafsson also loved the new design, using "fantastic" to describe the bay window situation. They weren't even asked to get rid of the ones on the second floor, but did so anyway, to the commission's delight.

    Default AB Architekten’s 29 Clay Street to Bring Manhattan Modernism to Greenpoint


    A proposed 12-story residential building near the mouth of Newtown Creek inGreenpoint may bring some avante-garde design to a neighborhood better known for its low-slung factories, unpretentious row-houses, hearty Polish community, and an immense wastewater treatment plant. Coming from the office of AB Architekten, led by Alexander Blakely, a 70,000-square-foot proposal at 19-29 Clay Street is envisioned to rise directly across from the long-promised Box Street Park, and it may be the first of a multitude of high-rises set to radically transform the neighborhood’s waterfront.

    ODA unveils amenity-packed zigzagging rental building in Bushwick

    Friday, March 20, 2015
    by Henry Melcher


    (Courtesy ODA)

    ODA has unveiled renderings for a massive new residential complex in Bushwick, Brooklyn—and it certainly reminds us of Bjarke Ingels’ 8 House in Copenhagen with its doughnut-like shape and landscaped roof that dips toward the street. At nearly 400,000 square feet, ODA’s 10 Montieth Street will become a major piece in the redevelopment of the Rheingold Brewery site.


    (Courtesy ODA)

    The 392-unit rental building is quite obviously geared toward younger tenants that have been flocking to the neighborhood in recent years. Above the building’s apartments—most of which are studios or one-bedrooms—is that 25,000-square-foot roof, which packs more amenities than a three-day Carnival Cruise. According to the Real Deal, 10 Montieth’s zigzagging roof has a “running/hiking course, urban farming areas and an outdoor cross-training facility.” There is also apparently a “chill space” and some graffiti walls so renters can take the edge off if urban farming isn’t going as planned. They could also probably use the 19,000-square-foot courtyard as a “chill space.” Good to have options.


    (Courtesy ODA)

    The building’s protruding volumes and balconies give it the boxy design aesthetic we have come to expect from ODA. The geometric exterior is primarily clad in light gray stone or concrete and has pronounced orange window frames. ODA adds contrast to the project by using darker materials on the sections of the building that are set back from the street.

    Default Permits Filed for New Faux-Loft Building at the Intersection of Boerum Hill and Gowan

    Permits Filed for New Faux-Loft Building at the Intersection of Boerum Hill and Gowanus

    www.6sqft.com/permits-filed-for-new-faux-loft-building-at-the-intersection-of-boerum-hill-and-gowanus

    Avery Hall Investments filed permits last week for an eight-story, 20-unit residential building at the corner of Third Avenue and St. Marks Place. The site is situated in the area where bucolic Boerum Hill meets the utilitarian factory lofts of Gowanus. The development at 125 Third Avenue will replace a one-story commercial building that Avery picked up earlier this year for $5.65 million according to city records. The team also recently broke ground on another Boerum Hill condominium at 472 Atlantic Avenue designed by the context-sensitive Morris Adjmi Architects.

    Default 22,000 New Apartments Coming to Northern Brooklyn by 2019

    We recently reported that New York City was entering its biggest building boom since 1963. Building permits rose 156 percent over the last year, accounting for 52,618 new residential units. If that number seems large to you, keep in mind it’s spread over the five boroughs, including the supertall towers of Manhattan. But a new report from CityRealty shows that northern Brooklyn alone with get 22,000 new apartments over the next four years.

    Stepped Flatbush Tower Offers Outdoor Space on All Units

    November 13, 2015, by Tanay Warerkar


    All photos via NY YIMBY

    After some back and forth, construction work on Nostrand Avenue's 23-story Ziggurat-like tower is just a few weeks from starting, NY YIMBY reports. The project is being developed by Hello Living, a Brooklyn-based development group that has worked on several projects in the Crown Heights and Flatbush area including Hello Washington and the Pacific Street Lofts. Hello Living purchased the property located at 1580 Nostrand Avenue for just over $13 million in 2014. Earlier this year, the head of the firm, Eli Karp, put the property back on the market for $28 million, but he has since relented and decided to go forward with the project, according to NY YIMBY.



    When complete the building will feature 153 apartments. Half will be sold as market rate rentals and the other half as condos. Most of the apartments are two-bedrooms and have 770 square feet of space and 170 square feet of outdoor space. Prices for them will range from $460,000 to $700,000. One-bedrooms will have 549 square feet of space, about the same amount of outdoor space, and will go for $330,000 to $403,000.

    If seen from afar the building almost looks like a step farming community in the mountains, but what's unique to the building is the fact that every single apartment has an outdoor space. Vincent Martineau, a Karl Fischer Architecture alum is the architect of record and Loadingdock5 is the design architect. The building will also have a 160-car garage and an urgent care center on the first and second floor, according to NY YIMBY.

    The old Verizon building on the lot has been demolished and work is set to commence in the next couple of weeks.
