East New York’s infill boom continues apace, and now, an application for a new seven-story building at 2437 Pitkin Avenue has been filed by Williamsburg-based Southside Associates. At a height of 75 feet, the project would be among the taller structures in the area. The mixed-use development will have a total construction area of 23,000 square feet, including nearly 1,000 square feet of commercial retail on the first floor. The remaining 22,000 square feet will be divided amongst 32 residential units. The architect for the project is Diego Aguilera Architects, P.C., and demolition permits have not yet been filed for the existing garage.
New building applications have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use project at 1595 Broadway, on the southwestern edge of Bushwick, Brooklyn. The structure will have a total area measuring 49,284 square feet, to be occupied by a 7,400 square-foot retail component on the first floor, 7,420 square feet of community facility space on the second floor, and 22,752 square feet of residential space above that. The residential will be divided between 35 units, with the average square footage of under 650 square feet highly indicative of rental apartments. Diego Aguilera is the architect of record, Martin Joseph of Bawbeh United, LLC, is listed as the developer, and a nondescript one-story building must be demolished before construction can begin.
YIMBY has revealed two major projects coming to East New York in the past few months, on Loring Avenue and at 3301 Atlantic Avenue. While those developments will transform entire blocks, other smaller lots are now joining the neighborhood’s boom. Now, new job applications have been filed for a substantial project at 820 Glenmore Avenue, one block northeast of the C train’s Shepherd Avenue stop, totaling 77 units.
Brooklyn-based Candor Capital has filed applications for a six-story, 17-unit residential building at 1764 Union Street, on the eastern end of Crown Heights. The project will measure 14,206 square feet and rise to a height of 63 feet. The residential units should average 705 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will also be a 396-square-foot recreational area behind the structure. Diego B. Aguilera’s Rego Park-based firm is the architect of record. The 30-foot-wide, 3,483-square-foot lot was occupied by a two-story townhouse until the structure was demolished in October 2015.
