Staten Island-based developer Over Development has filed applications for four single-family houses at 4004-4010 Manhattan Avenue, in Sea Gate, which is the gated community on the western end of Coney Island in Brooklyn. Each house will stand four stories in height and measure 2,028 square feet. The residential portions of each structure will begin on the second floor in an effort to mitigate damage during future floods. The ground level will remain unfinished and designed to sustain flood waters. Each house will also come with two off-street parking spaces. Stanley M. Krebushevski’s Staten Island-based SMK Architect is the architect of record. The 10,033-square-foot site, on the corner of Neptune Avenue, is currently vacant. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the community with high surf, destroying many homes in the process.
