Permits have been filed for a nine-story residential building at 45-57 Davis Street, in Long Island City, Queens. The project is just a block away from Court Square, serviced by the 7 train, and end of the line for G trains. Court Square-23rd Street is just four blocks further, and is serviced by the E and M trains. The subways allow for a quick commute directly into Midtown Manhattan. Solomon Feder, of Brooklyn-based Velocity Framers USA, will be responsible for the development.

Another new development will soon rise in the blocks that mesh Greenpoint and Williamsburg into a cohesive urban whole, with building applications filed for 146 Bayard Street. Charles Mallea will be designing the six-story project, which will have a total residential floor area of 31,646 square feet, to be divided amongst 46 units. At an average size of under 700 square feet, rentals would appear very likely. Solomon Feder of Velocity Framers is listed as the developer, and the site is currently occupied by a one-story warehouse.
Back in February of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a nine-story, 118-unit residential building at 1875 Atlantic Avenue, in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant, located three blocks from the Ralph Avenue stop on the C train. Renderings of the 79,446-square-foot project have now been revealed by DNAinfo. The residential units should average 673 square feet apiece, which means rental apartments are in the works. Amenities include a 59-car garage on the ground floor, storage for 59 bikes, a laundry, and three separate recreational areas located on the ground, eighth, and nine floors. StudiosC is designing the project, while Brooklyn-based Julien Flander is serving as the applicant of record. Velocity Framers USA Inc. is the developer and completion is expected in early 2017. The site’s former single-story warehouse was demolished in early 2015.
Brooklyn-based Velocity Framers has filed permits to built a new four-story, eight-unit residential building at 2825 Snyder Avenue in the borough’s East Flatbush neighborhood. It’s about a block from the Church Av 2/5 stop. The filing is for a 45-foot-tall building, which would make the four-story number work. However, the filing only lists 2,595 square feet of residential space out of a total of 5,667 square feet. The latter number being more likely, it would mean average units of about 708 square feet. The Schedule A lists two units per floor. Velocity Framers is also the applicant of record. An existing two-story house will have to be demolished.
Solomon Feder’s Velocity Framers USA has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 2823 Snyder Avenue, in Flatbush, two blocks south of the Church Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure 5,667 square feet, and units will average 708 square feet, indicative of rentals. Velocity Framer’s David Silberman is the architect of record, and demolition permits were filed back in 2008 to raze an existing dilapidating two-story home.
