The Orthodox community in Borough Park is one of the city’s fastest growing groups, and they’re building plenty of schools to educate their children. Today, YIMBY has the first look at one of these schools – the new headquarters for United Talmudical Academy at 123 Clara Street, on the corner of 36th Street.
Property owner Carol Katzburg has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 1225 42nd Street, in northern Borough Park, three blocks from the D train’s stop at Fort Hamilton Parkway. The structure will measure 8,796 square feet in total, and that figure includes 2,297 square feet of community facility space on the ground floor. The full-floor residential units above will average a family-sized 2,166 square feet apiece. Queens-based Grigori Zinkevitch is the architect of record, and an existing 2.5-story house must first be demolished.
A Borough Park-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1416 49th Street, in central Borough Park, located three blocks from the D train’s stop at 50th Street. It will measure 8,778 square feet in total, which means units will average 1,097 square feet apiece. Ruslan Goychayev’s Brooklyn-based RSLN Architecture is the architect of record, and permits were filed in September to demolish an existing two-story house.
The southern edge of Borough Park was downzoned in 2007, limiting development in Dyker Heights and in the communities at its edges. But one developer is handling the low-density zoning by planning four small apartment buildings on Fort Hamilton Parkway between 63rd and 64th Streets.
Sam Weisner, operating as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 1475 60th Street, in southern Borough Park, two blocks from the D train’s stop at 62nd Street. Each building will contain three units and the entire development will span 7,198 square feet; that translates into an average unit size of 1,200 square feet. Yevgeniy Mekhtiyev’s Brooklyn-based IMC Architecture is the applicant of record, and demolition permits were filed earlier this month to raze an existing three-story, three-family house.
