Tomer Erlich, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 204 Monroe Street, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, located seven blocks north of the Nostrand Avenue stop on the A and C trains. The building will measure 10,000 square feet in total, with 8,000 square feet being used as residential space. Units will average 1,000 square feet apiece, and two duplex units will be located across the third, fourth, and penthouse floors. Robert Lin’s Flushing-based A&T Engineering is the applicant of record. Permits were filed in December to demolish an existing single-story warehouse.
Queens-based Xiaozhong Yuan has filed applications for three three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 108-43 – 108-47 52nd Avenue, in Corona, located just west of Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Two of the buildings will have 3,201 square feet of residential space each, while the third structure will contain 2,942 square feet. Across the entire development, full-floor units will average a relatively spacious 1,038 square feet apiece. Flushing-based Zheng & Associates is the applicant of record. Demolition started last week on two existing two-story townhouses, according to filings.
Flushing-based D&K Realty Development has filed applications for three three-story, three-family residential buildings at 518-522 West 232nd Street, on the southern end of Riverdale in the North Bronx. The square-footage of each building differs slightly, although the entire development will have 8,670 square feet of residential space. Across the buildings, units will average 963 square feet apiece, so either small condos or spacious rental apartments could be in the works. Flushing-based Michael Kang is the architect of record. The site is currently vacant, as its three-story predecessor was demolished back in 2007.
In May of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential project at 797 Sterling Place, in eastern Crown Heights. The developer, Ari Kirschrnbaum, however, has since filed permits for a larger building. The new filings call for a six-story, eight-unit mixed-use structure measuring 13,292 square feet in total. A 1,706 square-foot children’s day care is now planned on the ground and cellar levels. The residential units will begin on the second floor and should average 1,034 square feet apiece, which means small condos may be in the works. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the applicant of record. The site is located within a five-block radius of the 2, 3, 4, 5, and Franklin Avenue Shuttle (S) trains.
Will the former First Church of Christ, Scientist in New York City at 361 Central Park West become condominiums? We still don’t know. But we do know many in the community don’t want the conversion and at least one pastor wants to preach there.
