431 kent avenue williamsburg 72014

The huge eight-building development rising at 431 Kent Avenue in Hasidic Williamsburg has gotten a red brick facade and windows. The complex will have 188 units, 227 underground parking spaces, 81 bike storage spaces, and 48 above ground parking spaces, as we reported in March.

Next door at 429 Kent, the Beijing-based XIN Development is installing the foundation and first floor of The Oosten, a pricey Dutch-designed condo project. In an interesting twist, XIN has agreed to alter certain features of the development out of respect for the Hasidim who will likely live in 431 Kent.  (more…)

Amenities include nine off-street parking spaces, nine bike storage spots and a roof deck. A sign on the door calls them the “233 Greenwood Condominiums” and says they’ll be finished this summer.

rheingold-dev-site-091313

A percentage of the huge and hotly debated Rheingold Brewery development site in Bushwick has just sold for $11,250,000, according to public records. The collection of nearly 50 commercial properties includes the former brewery at 930 Flushing, as well as a long list of small adjacent commercial properties on Stanwix Street, Melrose Street, Monteith Street, and Flushing and Bushwick avenues. The buyer is RP Acquisitions LLC, which we’re guessing is an arm of Read Property, the developer that already owns the site. The deed transfers 12.5 percent of the property to this LLC, which explains the low sale price.  (more…)
