Leonardi’s Howard Beach-based Miele Associates is the architect of record. The 5,000-square-foot property is vacant. The Norwood Avenue stop on the J train is three blocks away.
Property owner Igor Yanovskiy, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, single-family houses at 110-114 Kensington Street, in Manhattan Beach.

The living quarters will be located on the second and third floors, while the ground floor will be flood resistant. In addition, each house will come with a 218-square-foot, single-car garage. Joel A. Miele’s Queens-based Miele Associates is the architect of record.
