A pair of condo buildings is set to replace two stories of retail and office space on a sleepy residential block in the West Village. New building applications were filed over the weekend to erect two connected six-story buildings at 703 Washington Street, on the corner of Perry Street and a block east of the West Side Highway.
A rendering has been revealed of the six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building planned at 501 Myrtle Avenue, located on the corner of Ryerson Street in Clinton Hill. The image was spotted on-site by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. The latest building permits indicate the project, technically an expansion of the existing single-story building, will measure 13,088 square feet. It will include 1,882 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground and cellar levels. The residential units above should average 690 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include storage for five bikes, a “recreation room” on the second floor, a rooftop terrace. The developer is operating as an anonymous LLC and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architectural firm is designing.
Property owner Kenneth Rudden has filed applications for a three-story, four-unit residential building at 174A Beach 111th Street, in Rockaway Park. That’s a neighborhood along the Rockaways in Queens. The project will measure 3,740 square feet and its residential units should average 935 square feet apiece, which means either rentals or condominiums could be in the works. The ground floor will contain parking for four cars. It will be subject to flooding and purposefully doesn’t include living space. Financial District-based CSA Group is the architect of record. The project will be constructed as part of the Build It Back program, which funds the rebuilding of residential structures destroyed or demolished after receiving damage from Hurricane Sandy. The 6,000-square-foot site is currently vacant.
Brooklyn-based property owner Rachel Ohana has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 555 Maple Street, in northern East Flatbush. The structure will measure 5,395 square feet. There will be one unit on the ground floor, followed by a townhouse-style apartment across part of the ground floor and the upper three floors. Lewis E. Garfinkel’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,300-square-foot lot is currently vacant. The Sterling Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains is six blocks away.
Many of the vinyl-clad, wood frame houses typical in eastern Williamsburg are biting the dust for new development. Today, we have a look at a new project replacing a little two story house at 95 Ainslie Street, between Lorimer Street and Union Avenue.
