Long Island-based property owner Genara Gonzalez has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 842 Liberty Avenue, in northern East New York, located three blocks south of the Norwood Avenue stop on the J/Z trains. As proposed, the new building would measure just 3,203 square feet and include a 953 square-foot doctors office on the ground floor. The residential units would be extremely small, averaging 375 square feet apiece. But those plans could soon be replaced with a larger building, thanks to the proposed East New York rezoning. If approved, the site could accommodate a maximum of 3,600 square feet of commercial space and 5,400 square feet of residential space in the form of a four- to six-story building. Yonkers, N.Y.-based Leder-Luis Architectural Design is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide lot is vacant.

Queens Village-based Melody Development, headed by David Manesh, has filed applications for two three-story, two-unit residential buildings at 431-433 Warwick Street, in central East New York, located six blocks east of the Van Siclen Avenue stop on the C train. Both buildings will measure a total 4,200 square feet each, which means the apartments will be rather spacious. According to the Schedule A, both new properties will feature a duplex unit across the ground and second floors, and a single unit on the third floor. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide site is currently vacant and is located just south of the area’s rezoning, which the City Planning Commission approved last month.
In February of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 159,050 square-foot medical office building at 101 Pennsylvania Avenue, in northern East New York, located within walking distance of subway stops on the A, C, J, Z, and L trains, as well as the East New York station on the Long Island Rail Road. Later that year, the site’s old four-story commercial building, the Former East New York Savings Bank, was demolished. Now, Brownstoner has renderings of the new building and foundation work is currently underway on it. The project will boast 116,522 square feet of medical office space as well as 153 parking spots. Parking will take up the second through fourth floors, and medical office space will occupy the ground level and fifth through seventh floors. Array Architects is behind the design and Jonas Rudofsky, doing business as an anonymous LLC, is listed as partner to the property owner.
