Midwood Investment & Development filed a permit in November last year for a 13-story, 149-foot-tall mixed-use building with 82 residential units, 13,843 square feet of commercial space and a 23,503-square-foot community facility, Curbed reported. The permit was denied in December. The architects of record are Goldstein, Hill & West.
Midwood’s site displays a commercial listing for 14,903 square feet available at the lot, which is located near the Marcy Avenue JMZ stop.
Seems like the project has been brewing for several years; we dug a little deeper and found a December 2011 write-up from The Marketing Directors site, announcing “Midwood Investment & Development’s newest luxury rental development at 285 Broadway”:
“Designed in partnership by dream team Goldstein Hill & West Architects & Morris Adjmi Architects, 285 Broadway will offer 80-plus residences and an impressive amenity menu, including a spectacular two-story lobby with doorman service, a state-of-the-art fitness center, residents’ lounge, dining room with catering kitchen, pet spa, game room, above-ground onsite parking, and two sprawling outdoor areas that will feature an herb garden, barbeque areas, a Central Park-inspired lawn, sunbathing areas, and more. Inside, an extraordinary mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom residences will offer an exceptional interior finish package and panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, Hudson River, and Brooklyn.”
The building, which also goes by 282 South 5th Street, will have 24 studios, 40 one-bedrooms and 18 two-bedroom units, The Real Deal reported.
