Earlier this week, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Now, filings have been submitted on the other side of Calvary and Saint Cyprian’s Church, at 972 Bushwick Avenue, by the same development team.
The Lower East Side‘s gradual densification continues apace, and new building applications have now been filed for 330 Grand Street, between Orchard and Ludlow Streets. The new structure will rise six floors and total 11,000 square feet of residential space, to be divided between twelve units. At over 900 square feet apiece, that means condominiums are possible here, though rentals could also result. Martin Kapell of Think Architecture + Design is the site’s architect, Daniel Wise of 330 Grand Street LLC is listed as the developer, and permits for demolishing the existing structures, which span 330-332 Grand Street, were filed this May.

But the owner of a parking lot 251 Front Street hopes to get an upzoning to construct a nine-story apartment building there, according to documents filed with the Department of City Planning.
