Queens-based property owner Idan Cohen has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 846 Quincy Street, in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant, located two blocks from the Gates Avenue stop on the J and Z trains. The structure will measure 5,000 square feet and there will be two apartments per floor on the ground through third levels. The project’s residential unit on the fourth floor will feature additional space in a fifth-floor penthouse. The residential space listed on permits is misleading, with only 3,000 square feet allotted for the seven units, which would work out to an average size of about 429 square feet. Still, apartments here will probably be rentals. Woody Chen’s Infocus Design & Planning is the architect of record, and the 25-foot-wide lot has been long vacant.

Eastern Bushwick is flush with construction sites and dramatic gut renovations, and yesterday YIMBY spotted building applications for yet another new residential development at 1219 Putnam Avenue, between Evergreen and Central Avenues.
Renderings have been revealed (h/t Curbed) of Djem Land LLC’s planned 12-unit residential development at 171-173 Bayard Street, in northern Williamsburg, located a block north of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Although it will appear as a single structure, the project will technically have two separate buildings, each to rise four stories and 50 feet in height, and to contain six units apiece. The residential square-footage will total 8,228 square feet, which means individual units will average a rental-sized 686 square feet. Elmhurst-based InFocus Design and Planning is the architect, and two single-story brick structures were demolished early last year.
One of the last remnants of decades of disinvestment and abandonment in Bed-Stuy is about to be redeveloped. A 16-unit residential building is coming to the empty lot at 401 Gates Avenue, between Bedford and Nostrand Avenues.
Lower East Side-based Andy Mak has been granted permits to build a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1415 67th Street, in northern Bensonhurst, located roughly five blocks from subway stops on either the D or N trains. The building will measure a total of 7,405 square feet, which works out to units averaging a family-sized 925 square feet apiece. Wu Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record. The site consists of three tax lots, and a two-story townhouse and an adjacent structure must be demolished. Initially, applications filed back in 2014 called for a smaller building with nine units, but that was never approved.
