An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 185 Devoe Street, in central Williamsburg. The project will measure 5,439 square feet and its residential units should average 720 square feet apiece. That means rental apartments are likely in the works. Dmitriy Shenker’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 24-foot-wide, 1,800-square-foot site is occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Graham Avenue stop on the L train is around the block.
The last time YIMBY checked in on the new 58-story and 800-foot tall tower coming to 111 Murray Street, the building was just creeping above ground level. Now, a little over two months later, the structure is already climbing past its 15th floor, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer Kevin LeClerc.
A small ivy-covered wood frame house bit the dust last year on Quincy Street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Patchen Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Now a small apartment building is set to rise in its place, and YIMBY has a rendering of the project.
A rendering has been spotted on the construction fence of the development site at 97-01 Waltham Street, in downtown Jamaica. An eight-story, 58-key hotel project is planned, per the latest building permits. The new building will measure 31,346 square feet and rise 85 feet above street level to its roof. Guest amenities include a fitness center, a business center, two off-street parking spaces, and storage for five bikes. There will also be a 2,379-square-foot “social club” on the ground floor. Nehalkumar Gandhi’s North Bergen, N.J.-based LLC is the developer and Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based firm is the architect of record. Completion is currently scheduled for 2017.
An anonymous Astoria-based LLC has filed applications for a three-story, four-unit residential building at 32-27 35th Street, in Astoria. The project will measure 5,505 square feet and its residential units should average 1,132 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The schedule A contradicts the main documents, though, and describes a project that will rise four stories and contain six residential units. It’s unclear which version will be built. Frank Petruso’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record. An existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished. The Broadway stop on the N and Q trains is six blocks away.
