Brooklyn-based developer Urban View has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 27 Kossuth Place, in central Bushwick. The structure will measure 8,250 square feet, which means its units should average 825 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be one unit on the ground floor, followed by six units across the second and third floors, and three units on the fourth floor. Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the architect of record. The 37-foot-wide, 3,750-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a three-story, three-family townhouse. Demolition permits were filed in April. The site is located around the corner from the Kosciuszko Street stop on the J train.
Infocus Design & Planning P.C.
Back in September of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 505 Clinton Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill, located right above of the Clinton-Washington Avenues stop on the C train. Those plans never got off the ground and are now being replaced with ones for a six-story, 12-unit residential project. The latest new building application calls for one with 10,350 square feet of residential space, which means units should average 862.5 square feet apiece. The structure would be topped by a penthouse level, which would be associated with one of the sixth-floor apartments and would be a duplex. The development team has also changed since 2014, with Brooklyn-based Dimora NYC Inc. now the developer and Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Engineering as the architect. The 30-foot-wide site’s old two-story house was demolished in March.
Jacob Scherman, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 267 Evergreen Avenue, in central Bushwick, located three blocks from the Kosciuszko Street stop on the J train. The structure will measure 9,990 square feet, and its residential units should average 917 square feet apiece, which means family-sized rental apartments are probably in the works. The project will be topped by a penthouse (with access from one of the units on the fourth floor) and a rooftop recreational area. Amenities also include two off-street parking spaces. Woody Chen’s Flushing-based Infocus Design & Engineering is the applicant of record. A dilapidating two-story wood-framed structure must first be demolished.
Idan Cohen, doing business as a Queens-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 113 North 9th Street, in northern Williamsburg, located three blocks from the Bedford Avenue stop on the L train. The structure will measure 5,310 square feet, which means its residential units should average a spacious 2,655 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. One unit will take up the ground and second floors, along with part of the cellar, while the other unit will be located in the third and fourth floors. Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Engineering is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide lot is currently vacant.
Brooklyn-based Urban View Realty has filed applications for a four-story, 11-unit residential building at 245 Schaefer Street, in eastern Bushwick, located five blocks from the Wilson Street stop on the L train. The structure will measure 5,000 square feet, according to the filings, although chances are that figure is not completely telling and is much larger. There will be two apartments per floor on the ground and second levels, followed by three apartments per floor on the next two levels. The fifth-floor penthouse level will host a single unit. Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the architect of record. It will rise on a 25-foot-wide vacant portion of a larger lot which is occupied by a small townhouse.
