Connecticut-based property owner Gjin Gjini has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 1605 Taylor Avenue, in the Van Nest section of the Bronx, located five blocks from the East 180th Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The project will measure just 3,740 square feet and would rise on a vacant 25-foot-wide lot. There will be 2,805 square feet of residential space, so the full-floor residential units should average 935 square feet apiece. That means relatively spacious rental units are probably in the works. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the applicant of record.
Queens Village-based Melody Development, headed by David Manesh, has filed applications for two three-story, two-unit residential buildings at 431-433 Warwick Street, in central East New York, located six blocks east of the Van Siclen Avenue stop on the C train. Both buildings will measure a total 4,200 square feet each, which means the apartments will be rather spacious. According to the Schedule A, both new properties will feature a duplex unit across the ground and second floors, and a single unit on the third floor. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide site is currently vacant and is located just south of the area’s rezoning, which the City Planning Commission approved last month.
Property owner Menohem Chukroon has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 32 Schaefer Street, in eastern Bushwick, located three blocks from the Chauncey Street stop on the J and Z trains. The new structure will encompass 7,438 square feet in total and will include 5,498 square feet of residential space. There will be two units on each floor and each unit will average 687 square feet, which means rentals are in the works. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the architect of record. A two-story, single-family home must first be demolished.
Mark Koplowitz has filed applications for a single-story, 3,120 square-foot commercial-retail building at 810 East 147th Street, in the South Bronx neighborhood of Woodstock. According to the filings, it will contain stores. The site is located three blocks north of the 6 train’s stop at East 134rd Street/St. Mary’s Street. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the applicant of record.
Back in 2013, Forest Hills-based Sharon Cohen filed applications for four little residential buildings at 12-02 – 12-10 27th Avenue, in western Astoria. Within the past few weeks, the DOB has finally granted building permits. The entire development will measure 10,348 square feet in residential space and total eight units. All four buildings will have only two units, with two of them rising three stories and the other two rising two stories. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the architect of record, and the site’s old two-story home was demolished in July.
