Across both buildings, there will be 4,402 square feet of residential space, which means the project’s full-floor units should average 1,100 square feet apiece. Whitestone-based Platonic Solids Architecture is the architect of record. The site, which was subdivided into two lots in February, is currently occupied by a two-story, single-family house. Permits were filed to demolish it in January.
