Work looks like it’s about to begin on Brause Realty’s project at 44-26 Purves Street (a/k/a 44-30 Purves). Permits were given partial approval by the Department of Buildings on Feb. 18, and over the weekend,1 we spotted construction equipment on the site. The activity on site had previously been limited to environmental survey teams.2

FXFowle is attached as the architect of record, and the building will span 207,053 square feet, split between a 517 square foot commercial component, and 270 apartments. At a total height of 374 feet, ceilings will also be surprisingly generous compared to most new construction in the neighborhood.
