59-35 Menahan Street

Three Stories, Six Residential Units Coming To 59-35 Menahan Street, Ridgewood

Property owner Vincent Cangialosi has filed applications for two three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 59-35 Menahan Street, in Ridgewood, eight blocks north of the M train’s Forest Avenue stop. A smaller six-unit building had been filed in January, but those plans now appear outdated. The latest filings call for six residential units — three in each building — spread across a total of 13,630 square feet, for very spacious units averaging 2,270 square feet. Salvatore Prainito’s Astoria-based Prainito Design Group is the applicant of record, and the site’s two-story home was filed for demolition earlier this month.

Three-Story, Three-Unit Condo Project Planned At 1071 57th Street, Borough Park

Property owner Esther Hoffman has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 1071 57th Street, in western Borough Park, four blocks from the D train’s 55th Street stop. The building will measure 7,020 square feet in total, which means units will average a spacious 2,340 square feet, indicative of condos. Midwood-based Asher Hershkowitz is the architect of record, and the existing home — which sold for $1,125,000 in March — must first be demolished.

Four-Story, Eight-Unit Residential Building Planned At 490 Van Buren Street, Bedford-Stuyvesant

Williamsburg-based Urban View Realty has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 490 Van Buren Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant near the Bushwick border, two blocks from the J train’s Kosciuszko Street stop. The building will measure 6,000 square feet, and at two per floor, units will average 750 square feet apiece. Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story house must first be demolished.


538 Washington Avenue

Reveal For Five-Story, 10-Unit Condo Project At 538 Washington Avenue, Clinton Hill

In southern Clinton Hill, a five-story, 10-unit residential building is currently in the works at 538 Washington Avenue, and now renderings have surfaced of the project, per Curbed. The building has been named Aperture 538, and the structure topped out late last year. Sam Boymelgreen is developing. Luca Andrisani is designing, and Tamar Kisilevitz is serving as the architect of record. A few days ago, applications to sub-divide the units were filed with the DOB, meaning that a sales launch is likely happening soon. The Washington Avenue C train stop is located a few steps away.
