Building applications have been filed for a seven-story development at 1622 East 15th Street, just below the southern edge of Brooklyn’s Midwood neighborhood, next to Sheepshead Bay. The project will span 15,920 square feet in all, with 16 units in total, translating into an average size of about 1,000 square feet. That means either rentals or condos are possible. There will be two units on the ground floor, three per level from the second through fourth floors, and then two apartments on each floor above that. Robert Lin of A&T Engineering is listed as the architect, and Chiu Wong is the site’s developer.
A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 863 East 12th Street, in the northern end of Midwood.

There will be five off-street parking spaces, one of which will be housed on the ground floor of the building. David Nagan’s Fresh Meadows-based firm is the architect of record. The 4,000-square-foot lot is occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits have not been filed.

The new owners plan to develop a mixed-use project with retail and residential units, Commercial Observer reported. The 10,750-square-foot site can accommodate up to 43,000 square feet of development. Neither demolition permits nor new building applications have been filed. The Avenue M stop on the Q train is five blocks away.

The facility will feature a ritual area in the cellar, administrative offices and a waiting area on the ground floor, and a multi-purpose room on the second floor. The Brooklyn-based Spiral Group is the architect of record of the 27-foot-tall structure. The 3,600-square-foot lot is vacant. Its three-story predecessor was demolished back in 2007. The Avenue J stop on the Q train is 10 blocks away.
