Applications for the sixth, and most likely the final, four-story, six-unit residential building have been filed at 21-26 45th Road. The building is one of Brooklyn-based Leny Vays’s six-building, 36-unit residential development planned at 21-20 – 21-28 45th Road and 21-19 46th Avenue, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. Plans for the first four were submitted in September and the fifth was filed just last week. As previously reported, Igor Zaslavskiy’s Brooklyn-based Zproekt is the architect of record and the site’s existing single-story warehouses are currently awaiting demolition.
In 2015, Fortis Property Group laid out plans to redevelop the Long Island College Hospital property, located on several blocks in Cobble Hill. One proposal was for as-of-right development, while the other required an individual rezoning, approved through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). The developer has decided to move forward with the as-of-right plan, which will not include any affordable residential units, Politico reported.
Construction has topped out and is quickly wrapping up on the six-story, 102-unit mixed-use building under development at 5 Blue Slip as part of the Greenpoint Landing mega-development, in northern Greenpoint. All of the building’s apartments will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery; applications for them have just launched.
An anonymous Flushing-based LLC has filed applications for two four-story, four-unit residential buildings at 16-18 Melrose Street, in western Bushwick. The buildings will each measure 5,084 square feet and 4,432 square feet, respectively. Across both, the full-floor residential units should average 1,190 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are likely in the works. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record. The 47-foot-wide, 4,474-square-foot site is vacant. The Myrtle Avenue stop on the J and M trains is a stone’s throw away.
In the spring of 2015, Thor Equities entered into contract for the development site at 176 Bedford Avenue, located on the corner of North 7th Street in North Williamsburg. The developer has since closed on the property for $30 million. The developer plans to build a two-story, 14,500-square-foot commercial-retail building.
