Newburg, N.Y.-based Issac Laufer has filed applications for a seven-story, single-family residence at 200 Parkville Avenue, in southern Kensington, ninety feet in from Ocean Parkway. The building will measure an enormous 9,980 square feet, standing 80 feet to the roof, and will feature five parking spaces for automobiles in the cellar. Charles Mallea’s Williamsburg-based M Architecture is the architect of record, and a two-story house must first be demolished.

The city hopes to kick off its big East New York rezoning within the next few weeks, and it plans to subsidize the construction of 1,200 new affordable apartments in the transit-rich area near Broadway Junction. Meanwhile, market-rate development is slowly growing in the southern half of the neighborhood, where new construction comes in the form of small three- and four-story buildings—the only thing that pencils out right now.
A four-story nursing home at 123 Linden Boulevard in Flatbush hit the market in early 2014 asking $20 million. Now the new owner has filed plans for a 57-unit apartment building on the site between Bedford and Rogers Avenues.
Earlier this year, the two-story hardware store at 420 Tompkins Avenue, in southwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, was demolished to make way for a six-story, 44-unit residential building, and now the steel-framed structure is a story above street level, per Brownstoner. Charles Mallea is designing, and the building will measure 29,908 square feet, featuring rental-sized units averaging 680 square feet. Bed-Stuy-based CS Management is developing, and completion is expected in the spring of 2016.
