A 12-story apartment building is set to replace five small houses in Brighton Beach, only a few short blocks from the waterfront and the neighborhood’s stop on the B and Q trains.
Joseph Spector, of Dome Architecture, has filed new building applications to erect the 25-foot-wide tower at 2960 Brighton 4th Street, between Neptune and Ocean View Avenues. Its 22 apartments will be divided across 22,670 square feet, yielding relatively large apartments averaging 1,030 square feet each. Residential will begin on the second floor, and every story will host two units.
A two-car garage and a lobby will fill the ground floor of the building, and a parking lot with 11 spaces will round out the project. The development will actually have slightly more parking than zoning requires. The extra parking and spacious apartments mean this building will likely become condos.
Permits list Maya Zubok, doing business under a Long Island City-based LLC, as the developer.
The development site consists of six little tax lots spanning 9,450 square feet. The LLC picked up the properties for a combined $1,290,000 in a series of sales during 2013.
Some of the houses got their demolition permits last year, and others have demolition applications on file that haven’t been approved yet.
