    The Department of City Planning is about to park some good news upon Downtown Brooklyn developers.

    The Brooklyn Paper reported that a new City Planning proposal would reduce the number of parking spaces required in residential developments in Downtown Brooklyn and completely eliminate the mandate from below-market-rate buildings. The proposal will be presented within a few months. [more]

    The Clarett Group, a New York residential and office building developer, has shut down its New York office, leaving one local project in limbo and the company’s future in doubt. And it comes as founder Veronica Hackett has decamped for a developer of commercial space, Brookfield Office Properties.

    In January, following the gradual departure of staff over the past few months, the handful of remaining employees at Clarett’s Madison Square Park office were let go or quit, according to former employees. In 2007, that office had several dozen employees, the sources said. … [more]

  • This week’s rooftop opening party for the Brooklyner, a luxury rental tower at 111 Lawrence Street in Downtown Brooklyn, drew many guests — unfortunately, none of them were tenants, according to Curbed. Residents at the Brooklyner, the tallest building in the borough, say they’ve never even been allowed onto the building’s 51st-floor roof deck, where the building hosted its event, which was open to the media, project consultants and special invitees. While the building is 60 percent leased, residents say they’ve been given no estimate on when the rooftop might open to tenants and that this week’s elevated celebration was salt in the wound. For its part, developer Clarett Group said that it’s “in the process of completing the space, and it will soon be open to residents.” [Curbed]

    In Downtown Brooklyn, where a surge of new rental buildings have recently come online, there’s been no shortage of interest. At the Brooklyner, which at 515-feet lays claim to the tallest-building-in-the-borough title, 90 units were leased within the first month, roughly half of those currently available. When completed, the Lawrence Street development will have 491 units, with prices beginning at $1,450 for a studio, $1,900 for a one-bedroom and $2,450 for a two-bedroom. But those prices don’t factor in the incentives: including two months’ free rent on a 14-month lease for one- and two-bedrooms. At the BKLYN Gold, a 512-unit rental complex on Gold Street, studios are priced from $1,825 and one- and two-bedrooms are $2,220 and $2,860, respectively. Tenants who sign a two-year lease at BKLYN Gold can get five months worth of free rent, and that’s proved a successful marketing strategy. Two months since its sales launch, Lalezarian Properties has received 100 applications for the building. [Post]

  • Another high-rise has been planned for Downtown Brooklyn. If construction is completed on a new, 57-story high-rise building called the Avalon Willoughby West, it would overtake the 51-story Brooklyner, currently Brooklyn’s tallest building, by 82 feet. To make room for the development, which includes 861 rental apartments, developer Fred Harris has acquired many low-rise storefronts on Willoughby Street between Bridge and Duffield streets. These empty storefronts are now the home of a temporary art show. With the amount of high-rises being built in Downtown Brooklyn, skyscraper experts are saying Brooklyn is in the midst of a battle for the tallest building, comparable to the Manhattan race 80 years ago. … [more]
