Three-Story, Three-Unit Residential Building Filed At 444 Miller Avenue, East New York

Albert Basal has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 444 Miller Avenue, in central East New York, located three blocks from stops on the 3 and C trains. The building will measure 3,120 square feet, which means full-floor units will average a relatively spacious 1,040 square feet.
