We’re a little late to this news, but last week the architect Ariel Aufgang announced two upscale projects for Ridgewood and Bushwick. Rendered above, the 88-unit rental development planned for 176 Woodward Avenue, on the corner of Starr Street. Crain’s reports that the developer is seeking permits from the city to convert the parcel from manufacturing to residential use. The development will rise four stories and could possibly include a rooftop dog walk, a gym, garage and ground-floor retail. The architect said the design is to supposed to look like an assemblage of smaller properties — how do you like the looks of it? Construction should begin this year.

Meanwhile, the two-story, 75,600 square foot warehouse at 10-19 Irving Avenue, on the corner of Covert Street, just sold for $8,100,000. According to the NY Real Estate Journal, the purchaser plans to renovate the space into a production studio. The renovation calls for plans to reopen the 288 foot wall of windows which has been blocked for over two decades by a previous owner.
