Bayonne, N.J.-based Chafia Capital Partners has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 11-17 47th Road, in the Hunters Point Section of Long Island City. The structure will measure 7,022 square feet, and its residential units should average 713 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two apartments per floor, except for the fourth floor, which will host a single unit. That unit will also feature private rooftop space. Charles Diehl’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. Permits were filed back in 2011 to demolish the existing 25-foot-wide, two-story townhouse.
Back in the 1930s, two 19th century wood frame homes stood at 563 and 565 West 170th Street, between St Nicholas and Audobon Avenues in Washington Heights. But by the late 1970s, the two houses had been torn down and replaced by a garage and an unremarkable two-story brick building. Now a new residential building may grow at no. 563, which is mostly vacant except for the dilapidated, single-story garage.
As Brooklyn’s rising rents pushed further south, Flatbush saw a flood of filings in the first few months of 2015. There’s been a lull, thanks to uncertainty over the future of the 421-a tax abatement, but development seems to be picking up again in the central Brooklyn neighborhood. Plans were filed yesterday to build a seven-story, 24-unit building at 1084 Rogers Avenue, between Cortelyou and Clarendon Roads and a short walk from the Beverly Road 2/5 stop.
Late last year, a four-story, five-unit residential building topped out at 11-15 47th Road, in Long Island City, and now the building is fully clad, with interior work likely underway. The Court Square Blog reports the building will measure 4,998 square feet, and duplex units will average 1,000 square feet apiece. Amir Zicherman’s Long Island City-based Truffle Building is developing, and Bedford-Stuyvesant-based Charles Diehl is the architect of record.
