The last time we stopped by 42-44 Crescent Street in November, demolition on a two-story building had just finished on site.1 When we stopped by last week, we noticed that excavation had started on the site, and a rendering had appeared, as seen in the photos below.
New York YIMBY spotted a build permit back in July that called for an 8-story residential building with ground floor retail space.2 The DOB last reviewed the permits on Sept. 5, and disapproved them. Here are the proposed details of the building:
The permit is for a 15,338-square-foot building of eight stories and 92 feet – modest in total size, but dense for a 25-foot-wide lot. It will include 12 condos, according to the developer, spread over 10,435 square feet of net residential space. The building will also feature a ground-level retail bay measuring 2,060 square feet.
