Since being five stories up roughly two months ago, the 11-story, 44-unit mixed-use building under development at 613 Baltic Street, in northern Park Slope, has now now topped out at 119 feet above street level. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo shot by Tectonic. The 83,154-square-foot project is being dubbed Baltic and its residential units will be condominiums. Those currently available come in two- and three-bedroom configurations. The average unit should measure 1,339 square feet. The ground floor will include 3,157 square feet of retail and 2,163 square feet of space for a community center. The known amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. JDS Development Group is the developer, while VOA Architecture is serving as the design architect. Completion is anticipated for 2017.
Queens-based Southern Plaza Corp. has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1462 Southern Boulevard, in the West Bronx’s Longwood section. The structure will measure 5,300 square feet and its residential units should average 662.5 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two apartments on each floor. Russell A. Dance’s South Ozone Park-based RLD3 Engineering is the applicant of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,075-square-foot property is currently vacant. It’s predecessor, a three-story structure was demolished back in 2005 by the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development. The Freeman Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains is two blocks to the south.
Queens-based property owner Choi Yui Chan has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 37-15 103rd Street, in North Corona. The structure will measure 13,500 square feet. The ground floor and cellar level will host 3,402 square feet of retail space, followed by three units per floor on the second through fourth. The residential units should average 820 square feet apiece, which means rental apartments are likely in the works. Smaller condominiums are also a possibility, especially if the developer is catering to the Chinese. Robert H. Lin’s Flushing-based A&T Engineering is the applicant of record. Earlier this year, the developer filed plans for two separate four-story, four-unit buildings, but they were later disapproved. The 5,000-square-foot assemblage consists of two townhouses. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The site is two blocks north of the 103rd Street-Corona Plaza stop on the 7 train.
Property owner Shahin Badaly, doing business as an anonymous Mount Vernon, N.Y.-based LLC, has filed application for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 1072 University Avenue, in Highbridge. The structure will measure 6,452 square feet, which means its residential units should average 645 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two to three per floor. Mount Vernon-based SJBP Consulting Engineers is the applicant of record. The 27-foot-wide, 2,673-square-foot property is currently vacant. The site is located eight blocks from the 167th Street on the 4 train.
