A rendering has been revealed of the nine-story, 135-unit mixed-use building planned at 3003 West 21st Street (a.k.a. 2002 Surf Avenue), on Coney Island. Addition details have also emerged since new building applications were filed in April. The 118,743-square-foot structure will contain a mix of affordable and supportive housing, with 53 apartments to be rented at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, and 82 apartments to house homeless veterans. The units will all be one-bedrooms and should average 733 square feet apiece. There will also be 7,815 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Long Island-based Concern for Independent Living and Georgica Green Ventures are the developers. The Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect and completion is expected in 2018.

Roslyn, N.Y.-based Bama Associates has filed applications for a two-story, 74-bed co-ed community residential facility at 118-36 Merrick Boulevard, located on the corner of 119th Avenue in St. Albans, Queens. The new building will measure 9,596 square feet. It’s unknown what exactly the facility will be used for, but indications are that it will be some form of shelter, temporary housing, or recovery program. There will be administrative offices, meeting rooms, group rooms, medical offices, and a lobby on the ground floor, followed by bedrooms and lounges on the second floor. The cellar will contain a pharmacy, a dining room, classrooms, a recreation room, and addition offices. H2M Architects + Engineers is the architect of record. An existing single-story commercial building must first be demolished.
