Earlier this month, YIMBY reported on applications for three two-unit residential buildings at 731-735 Autumn Avenue, on the eastern end of East New York near the Queens border. Yesterday, Matthew Adhoot filed applications for four additional two-unit buildings at 737-743 Autumn Avenue. The four added buildings combine for a total 11,157 square feet in residential space, which means units will average 1,395 square feet. Combined with the townhouses planned at 731-735 Autumn, the development will boast 14 residential units. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Queens-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record.
Now that the city has started public review for the East New York rezoning, developers have begun pushing even deeper into the neighborhood, close to the border with Queens. New building applications have now been filed for one of these far-flung projects at 731-735 Autumn Avenue, a block west of the MTA’s Pitkin Avenue Yard.
The Third Avenue Elevated once ran through East Tremont, linking it with Manhattan all the way down to Chatham Square, in what is now Chinatown. The decaying wooden house at 772 East 182nd Street was likely built around the same time as the elevated, in the first few years of the 20th century. After the city suspended the elevated service in the 1950s and ’60s, the area began to slide into abandonment and poverty. But the neighborhood is slowly rebounding with the arrival of small, market-rate construction projects. Yesterday, new building applications were filed for a seven-story, 18-unit development that would replace the old house at 772 East 182nd Street, just west of the Bronx Zoo.
