The chief executive officer of telecom company Altice, Dexter Goei, has filed applications to convert the three-story, 11-unit residential building at 138-140 West 11th Street, in Greenwich Village, into a single-family mansion. The plans were initially revealed over the summer when Goei acquired the 12,000-square-foot property, but the alteration permits offer additional details.
Foundation work is now underway for 36 four-story, two-family townhouses to be located at 11-05 – 11-21 46th Avenue, 11-06 – 11-16 45th Road, and 45-27 – 45-41 11th Street, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. Photos of the site have been posted by The Court Square Blog. The townhouses will measure between 3,950 and 4,954 square feet in size, and individual apartments should average 1,949 square feet apiece across the entire development. Valhalla, N.Y.-based GDC Properties is the developer and Newman Design Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2018.

The couple behind Grimm Ales brews test batches of beer in their Gowanus apartment and then drives down to Virginia to create larger quantities for distribution. Now the nomadic brewers are finally making the leap to a permanent brewery at 990 Metropolitan Avenue in East Williamsburg.
Staten Island-based Javco Group Construction has filed applications for twin two-story, two-family residential buildings at 5304-5308 Amboy Road, in Huguenot, along Staten Island’s South Shore. The buildings will each measure 3,812 square feet and, across both, their full-floor residential units should average 1,178 square feet apiece. That means family-sized apartments are likely in the works. Each structure will also come with a 200-square-foot, single-car garage. James V. Morri’s Staten Island-based JVM Architect is the architect of record. The 75-foot-wide, 9,375-square-foot property was occupied by a two-story house until that structure was demolished over the summer.
