Moshe J. Halberstam, of Brooklyn-based Diamond Property Management Inc., has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 1771 49th Street, in southern Borough Park, located five blocks from the 18th Avenue stop on the F train. The new building will encompass 7,038 square feet, with 5,279 square feet designated for residential space. That means full-floor residential units should average a spacious 1,760 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized condominiums. Hudson Valley-based Kenneth Thomas is the architect of record. The 35-foot-wide lot’s deteriorating two-story, two-unit residential building was demolished during the summer of 2015.
Brooklyn-based Isaac Stern, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 1598-1600 Eastern Parkway, in southern Ocean Hill, located nine blocks south of the Rockaway Avenue Station on the A and C trains. Each one will measure 7,620 square feet in total, and they will have a combined total of 12,382 square feet of residential space. That means units will average 774 square feet apiece, although the top two units in each structure will be larger because those will have access to fifth-floor penthouses. Hudson Valley-based Kenneth Thomas is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide lot has been long-vacant.

Closer to Fort Hamilton Parkway, two seven-story mixed-use buildings are planned at 1060-1066 42nd Street. Both structures will have retail and community facility space, but one will contain nine residential units and the other will have 10 units.
