A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a seven-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 1374 42nd Street, in Borough Park. The project will measure 14,387 square feet and rise 70 feet in height to its roof. Office space, measuring 1,990 square feet, will span the ground and cellar levels, followed by a 2,103-square-foot daycare facility on the second floor and five residential units across the third through seventh floors. The apartments should average 1,427 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. The 2,504-square-foot lot is occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Renderings have been revealed of the 12-story, 305-unit mixed-use project at 443 East 162nd Street, located on the corner of Brook and Elton avenues in the South Bronx’s Melrose section. The project’s developers—the Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corp. (WHEDco.), BFC Partners, the the city’s Housing Preservation & Development (HPD)—broke ground on it last week, Curbed NY reported.
A Flushing-based property owner has filed applications for an eight-story, 12-unit mixed-use building at 137-70 Northern Boulevard, in downtown Flushing. The project will encompass 54,983 square feet and rise 97 feet to its roof. There will be 14,251 square feet of retail space across parts of the ground through third floors, followed by 5,361 square feet of medical office space on the third floor and 12 apartments across the fourth through eighth floors. The residential units should average 1,580 square feet apiece, which means they will likely be condominiums.
In July 2015, the Landmarks Preservation Commission rejected a proposal by Green-Wood Cemetery to restore the Weir Greenhouse and build an adjacent three-story visitor center at 750 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of 25th Street in Greenwood Heights. Later that year, the LPC approved restoration work, designed by Page Ayres Crowley Architects, on only the existing greenhouse structure. Construction is now underway on the 40-foot-tall structure, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported.
