Jamaica’s housing market is slowly recovering, and the latest sign of new growth comes in the form of a six-story apartment building planned at 153-11 90th Avenue, between Rufus King Park and Parsons Boulevard in downtown Jamaica.
Sanjana Shiraz, operating under an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 438 Humboldt Street, in northern Williamsburg, four blocks from the L train at Graham and Metropolitan avenues. The building will total 9,936 square feet, and units will be split up two per floor, except the top-floor units, which will also share a mezzanine level. Condominiums are likely planned, as units will average a relatively spacious 1,656 square feet apiece. New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record, and a three-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Back in June, complete renderings were revealed of Extell Development’s 22-story, 114-unit mixed-use building underway at 70 Charlton Street, in Hudson Square, and now the structure is up to the 12th floor, per Curbed, courtesy of Tectonic. The through-block development will contain 2,830 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a mix of condo and affordable rental units — 92 and 22, respectively — will occupy the floors above. Beyer Blinder Belle is designing, and occupancy is expected in late 2016.
Last winter, YIMBY reported on plans to convert the single-story church at 198 St. Nicholas Avenue, on the Bushwick-Ridgewood border, into a four-story, six-unit residential building.

Units will average north of 1,000 square feet apiece. Home Zone Corp. is developing, and Melamed Architect is designing.

Rego Park-based Diego Aguilera is the architect of record, and a two-story, two-unit townhouse must first be demolished.
