A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for four five-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 3506 Farragut Road, located on the southern end of East Flatbush. The buildings will measure 6,500 square feet each. Across all four, the apartments should average 750 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Asher Hershkowitz’s Brooklyn-based firm is the architect of record. The 5,700-square-foot plot is occupied by a two-story wood-framed house. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Now that the 421-a tax exemption is back from the dead, development is cranking into motion again in the outer boroughs. Last week, plans were filed for an eight-story residential project at 567 Ocean Parkway, near the southern edge of Kensington in Brooklyn.
East Flatbush hasn’t seen much development action since the 421-a tax break expired in January. But a little market-rate project is coming to the hood, possibly spurred by renewed negotiations over the controversial policy. A pair of five-story residential buildings may replace a detached house at 3603 Farragut Road, at the corner of Brooklyn Avenue in East Flatbush.
Bronx-based Ultimate Seven LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 35-key hotel at 3336 Webster Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Norwood section. The project will measure a compact 10,193 square feet and its hotel rooms should average a budget-sized 283 square feet apiece. Guest amenities include a 704-square-foot lobby, 11 off-street parking spaces, a fitness center, a business meeting room, and a breakfast area. Asher Hershkowitz’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 5,100-square-foot site is vacant and stretches 144 feet along Webster Avenue. The Williams Bridge station on Metro-North Railroad is a block to the north.
Property owner Ephraim Waxman has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 1821 49th Street, in southern Borough Park. It will measure 8,180 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 2,080 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. Condominiums are likely in the works. Asher Hershkowitz’s Brooklyn-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,000-square-foot assemblage is currently occupied by two attached two-story houses. Demolition permits have not yet been filed. The 18th Avenue stop on the F train is located three blocks away.
