All over Bed-Stuy, little row houses are giving way to apartment buildings. The latest example comes to us from the neighborhood’s western borderlands with Clinton Hill, at 169 Lexington Avenue.

A Long Island-based property owner has filed applications for twin three-story, two-family houses at 42-11 – 42-15 214th Place, in central Bayside. The buildings will each measure 3,219 square feet and, across both, the residential units should average 1,091 square feet apiece. Apartments with family-sized configurations are likely in the works. There will also be four off-street parking spaces. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based firm is the architect of record. The 5,000-square-foot site is currently occupied by a two-and-a-half-story house. Demolition permits were filed in July. The Bayside Long Island Rail Road station is three blocks away.
A small ivy-covered wood frame house bit the dust last year on Quincy Street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Patchen Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Now a small apartment building is set to rise in its place, and YIMBY has a rendering of the project.
A rendering has been spotted on the construction fence of the development site at 97-01 Waltham Street, in downtown Jamaica. An eight-story, 58-key hotel project is planned, per the latest building permits. The new building will measure 31,346 square feet and rise 85 feet above street level to its roof. Guest amenities include a fitness center, a business center, two off-street parking spaces, and storage for five bikes. There will also be a 2,379-square-foot “social club” on the ground floor. Nehalkumar Gandhi’s North Bergen, N.J.-based LLC is the developer and Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based firm is the architect of record. Completion is currently scheduled for 2017.
Briarwood-based HIIC Builders has filed applications for two four-story, six-unit residential buildings at 948-954 Herkimer Street, in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant. The buildings will measure 6,128 square feet each and their residential units should average 714 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 44-foot-wide, 4,400-square-foot site is currently occupied by a small two-story townhouse. Demolition permits were filed in September. The Ralph Avenue stop on the C train is two blocks away.
