Long Island City-based Bayside Contracting has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 35-48 32nd Street, on the southern end of Astoria. The project will measure 3,068 square feet, including 1,331 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by three residential units across the floors above. The full-floor apartments should average 579 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Joseph Sultana’s Bayside-based JLS Designs is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot is occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Renovations on a three-story, 8,856-square-foot mixed-use building are wrapping up at 61 Canal Street, located on the corner of Allen Street in Chinatown. Retail space will measure 2,143 square feet on the ground floor, followed by 6,713 square feet of community facility space on the second and third floors. Cheng Chio Buddhist Temple, also the property owner, will occupy the community space, Bowery Boogie reported. Rectories will be located on the second floor, worship space on the third, and the cellar will be utilized as a kitchen and storage space. A pagoda was also added up top. Sagnam Chang’s Brooklyn-based Basic Groups Corp. is the architect of record.
A few weeks ago, YIMBY reported on plans for a five-story apartment building at 2353 Dean Street in Ocean Hill, the slice of Brooklyn bordered by Crown Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant, East New York, and Brownsville. Now, we have a rendering of the project, courtesy of architect Ibrahim Greenbridge.
A rendering has been revealed of the proposed eight-story, 49-unit mixed-use project at 5108 Fourth Avenue, located on the corner of 51st Street in Sunset Park. The rendering comes as the project was recently approved by Community Board 7 as part of the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), Brooklyn Daily reported. If all approvals are granted, the new building would feature Brooklyn Public Library’s new Sunset Park branch, measuring 21,000 square feet. There would be 49 affordable rental residential units on the floors above, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms.
Construction appears to have been completed on the seven-story, 23-unit mixed-use project at 227 Grand Street, located on the corner of Elizabeth Street in Chinatown. The project is a redevelopment of three existing commercial structures that stood two or three stories in height. The expanded structure contains 6,929 square feet of commercial space, consisting of retail on the ground and second floors, in addition to office space also on the second floor. The residential units, across floors three through seven, should average 574 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals.
