Permits have been approved for two attached three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 2054 85th Street, in southern Bensonhurst. Each will measure 3,782 square feet and have full-floor residential units that should average 1,239 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be a total of six off-street parking spaces. An anonymous Bayside-based LLC is listed as the property owner and Steven Schneider’s New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the architect of record. The 6,000-square-foot property was previously occupied by two two-and-a-half-story houses until they were demolished in March of 2015. The 20th Avenue stop on the D train is around the corner.
Lower East Side-based Andy Mak has been granted permits to build a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1415 67th Street, in northern Bensonhurst, located roughly five blocks from subway stops on either the D or N trains. The building will measure a total of 7,405 square feet, which works out to units averaging a family-sized 925 square feet apiece. Wu Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record. The site consists of three tax lots, and a two-story townhouse and an adjacent structure must be demolished. Initially, applications filed back in 2014 called for a smaller building with nine units, but that was never approved.
Property owner Kenneth Wong has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 2125 72nd Street, in Bensonhurst, located 10 blocks south of the 20th Avenue stop on the N train. The structure will measure 4,050 square feet in total, and the family-sized units will average a very spacious 2,025 square feet apiece, spanning across two full floors. Anthony Lee’s Lower Manhattan-based AJR Architecture is the applicant of record. A very recessed, single-family home must first be demolished.
Property owner Anna Cheung has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 8154 Bay 16th Street, in Bensonhurst, two blocks from the D train’s stop at 18th Avenue. It will measure 5,151 square feet in total, which means units will average 858 square feet apiece. Harry Hong’s H2 Consulting is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story house must first be demolished.
Abdul Wahid has filed applications for a four-story, 16,563 square-foot religiously affiliated community building at 2105 82nd Street, in southern Bensonhurst, five blocks from the D train’s stop at 20th Avenue. The bottom floor will have the building’s lobby and area of worship, the second and third floors will be fitted for medical offices and classrooms, and the top floor will house the living quarters for three care takers. Long Island-based Willy Zambrano is the architect of record, and demolition permits were filed for two houses earlier this year.
