Asbury Park has seen a surge of new development following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, though up to this point, most of that has been new residential or hotel space. Now, plans have been revealed for a new performing arts center, dubbed Asbury J.A.M.S., and the building promises to anchor further improvements to the oceanfront community.
YIMBY doesn’t often report on filings for single-family residences, but today we have news for 204-23 46th Road, near the border of Auburndale and Bayside, in Queens. New building applications for the site show the home will have a total construction area of only 1,541 square feet, but the innovative design by Dennis George Architect promises to make up for the size with an innovative layout and a rather attractive exterior.
New building applications have been filed for a small site at 303 23rd Street, in Brooklyn’s Greenwood neighborhood. An existing one-story garage must first be demolished, and the permits list the replacement’s size at four floors and a total area of 7,419 square feet. The usable residential space will total 5,829 square feet, which will be divided between four units, for a generous average size of almost 1,500 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Douglas Pulaski of Bricolage Designs is the architect of record, and Anthony Devito of 75 Bay 17th Street, LLC, is listed as the developer.
