A Staten Island-based property owner has filed applications for three two-story, two-family houses at 261-265 York Avenue, in New Brighton on Staten Island’s North Shore. Two of the buildings will measure 2,276 square feet and the third will measure 2,013 square feet. Across all three, the full-floor residential units should average 789 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Jorge F. Canepa’s Staten Island-based Archidesign Architectural Studio is the architect of record. The 60-foot-wide, 5,073-square-foot plot is currently vacant.
Brooklyn’s waterfront is booming, and today YIMBY has a fresh rendering of one tower coming to the northern end, at 21 India Street, in Greenpoint. The site had previously gone by the address 10 Huron Street, and is currently sprouting a 39-story and 392-foot-tall tower, aptly dubbed The Greenpoint, which will contain apartments on its lower floors and condominiums up above.
Only a portion of the former five-story commercial building’s steel skeleton remains at the site of a planned 11-story, 137,081-square-foot commercial building at 510 West 22nd Street, located along the High Line in West Chelsea. The steel beams will be incorporated into the new building, which means the project is technically an expansion. Excavation work is currently taking place elsewhere on the property, as seen in the latest from Tectonic.
