For two years, Cornell Realty has been trying to develop two former commercial laundry facilities in southern Crown Heights into residential towers with more than 500 apartments. Now the firm’s plan to rezone those properties is inching through the public review process, and YIMBY has a glimpse of what the project will look like, thanks to documents filed with the Department of City Planning.
Non-profit affordable housing developer Phipps Houses has filed applications for a 14-story, 403-unit mixed-use tower at 250 Euclid Avenue, a.k.a. 3301 Atlantic Avenue, in the Cypress Hills section of East New York. The project will encompass 415,476 square feet and rise 143 feet to its roof. There will be 20,977 square feet of ground-floor retail, followed by residential units across floors two through 14, The Real Deal first reported. The apartments should average 936 square feet apiece and will all be designated as affordable.
An anonymous Glen Head, N.Y.-based LLC has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 52-22 Roosevelt Avenue, located on the corner of 53rd Street in Woodside. The project will measure 25,063 square feet and rise 55 feet to its roof. There will be 3,062 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by 4,538 square feet of medical office space on the second floor. The residential units will spread across the third through fifth floors, averaging 1,060 square feet apiece. Chinatown-based Z Architecture is the architect of record. The 4,908-square-foot lot is occupied by three-story building. Demolition permits have not been filed.
A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 716 57th Street, on the southern end of Sunset Park. The project will measure 5,856 square feet and rise 42 feet to its roof. There will be 1,080 square feet of medical office space on the ground floor, followed one apartment per floor on the second through fourth floors. The apartments should average 975 square feet apiece, which means either condominiums or rentals could be in the works. Luis C. Wong’s Flushing-based engineering firm is the applicant of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,003-square-foot lot is vacant.
