Permits have been filed for 17-story mixed-use building at 128 Beach 9th Street, a beachfront property in Far Rockaway, Queens. The site is six bus stops away from the Far Rockaway train station, serviced by the LIRR, and the Far Rockaway subway station, end of the line for the A trains. Red Group Management, based in the same neighborhood, will be responsible for the development.
John Schimenti P.C. Architect
The vacant lot on the corner of Bedford Avenue and Pacific Street, in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, is about to see a major new development. Building applications have been filed for a nine-story structure totaling just under 150,000 square feet, with 94 units in total. While that would normally translate into condominiums, back in January, DNAInfo reported that Newark-based Bedford Arms LLC was seeking to build affordable housing at the site. Now, with permits pulled, they are set to do just that. John Schimenti, P.C. Architect is listed as the designer, and with the lot already cleared, construction should begin imminently.
A rendering, as well as new details, have surfaced for the five-story, 30-bed rehabilitation facility, dubbed The Hook Recovery Center, under development at 411 Van Brunt Street, in Red Hook.

Since late 2014, Isreal Gold has filed applications to turn the four-story, four-unit townhouse at 801 Driggs Avenue, on the western end of Williamsburg, into a five-story, eight-unit building.

In the end, residential space will total 6,078 square feet, which means units will average 760 square feet, indicative of rentals. Brooklyn-based John Schimenti is the architect of record. The building is located four blocks from the Marcy Avenue stop on the J, M, and Z trains.
