Brooklyn-based property owner Khalid Pervez Heera has field applications for three three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 903-909 Cortelyou Road, in Kensington, located seven blocks west of the Cortelyou Road stop on the Q train. Plans call for a 4,576-square-foot, three-family building at 903 Cortelyou, a 3,744-square-foot, two-unit building at 905 Cortelyou, and, finally, a 4,472-square-foot, three-family building at 909 Cortelyou. Although the residential square-footage varies from building to building, the full-floor apartments should average 1,200 square feet across the entire development, indicative of condominiums. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed last July to remove the site’s existing two-story house.
Back in January, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the 21-story, 73-unit residential building under construction at 319 Schermerhorn Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. At the time, the structure was seven stories above street level, and the structure has since grown three more stories. Curbed NY now has new renderings of the 88,000-square-foot project, dubbed the Nevins. New details reveal that the condominium units will come in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations. There will be duplexes and full-floor residences, all being designed by Andres Escobar & Associates. Amenities will include a gym, lounge, children’s lounge, private storage space, space for 37 bicycles, and a rooftop terrace. There will also be two ground-floor retail units measuring 3,000 and 2,100 square feet each. Issac & Stern Architects is design architect and the project’s developers are Adam America Real Estate and the Naveh Schuster Group. Completion is currently expected in early 2017.
Yang Zhi Lu, doing business as Lower East Side-based Prospect Brothers Realty LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, 87-key hotel at 150 20th Street, in Greenwood, located five blocks south of the Prospect Avenue stop on the R train. The new building will encompass 29,278 square feet and its hotel rooms should average a budget-sized 287 square feet apiece. Guest amenities will include a meeting room on the ground floor, a breakfast area in the cellar, and 12 surface parking spots. Chinatown-based Jung Wor Chin Architect is the applicant of record. The project would replace a 125-foot-wide, single-story warehouse and demolition permits were filed in raze it this past December.
Chris Xu’s Century Construction and Development Group is slowly transforming Queens with huge mixed-use projects. Last month he filed plans for a 79-story skyscraper next to One Court Square in Long Island City. Now, YIMBY has renderings for his ambitious 14-story tower at 134-03 35th Avenue in Flushing.
Prolific condo builder Boaz Gilad started out by developing new projects in Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, and Clinton Hill, where the market for buying condos and co-ops is pretty well-established. But the pursuit of cheaper land prices and bigger lots has pushed the Bed-Stuy based developer north and east into Bushwick. His firm, Brookland Capital, is currently working on eight buildings in the north Brooklyn neighborhood. Now they’ve filed plans for a ninth, at 99 Grove Street.
