Permits have been filed to expand a three-story structure into a six-story mixed-use building at 4913 7th Avenue in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Located between 49th and 50th Streets, the lot is within walking distance of the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway station, serviced by the D train. Qing Liu is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 73-foot-tall development will yield 6,740 square feet, with 5,181 square feet designated for residential space and 1,559 square feet for commercial space. The building will have five residences, most likely condos based on the average unit scope of 1,036 square feet. The steel-based structure will also have a cellar and a 45-foot-long rear yard.

Ying Li of City Building NY Architect is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the project calls for a vertical and horizontal expansion. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

    It seems there have been a lot more of these expansion of existing building permits lately. Does anyone have insight why this seems to be the case?

  2. I’ve read that and I may have even speculated as much on here but I really don’t know if there’s any truth to that. I want to think such a thing is not happening because it seems like an example of egregious and blatant fraud, but again I don’t know.

    • Why else would there be articles on here of 2 story wood buildings being “expanded” into 6+ story buildings?

      As for Sunset Park though, it’s hard to tell from street view alone whether those Chinese buildings on the side blocks are actually expansions of 1890s rowhomes or built from scratch.
