Elmhurst-based property owner Song Lin, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for seven three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 89-26 – 89-40 43rd Avenue, in Elmhurst. Individual building permits have only been filed for five buildings, and they will measure between 3,940 square feet and 4,074 square feet. Across the development, the full-floor residential units should average 991 square feet apiece. Each building will come with laundry facilities in the cellar and two off-street parking spaces. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. The 150-foot-wide, 15,025-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story building. The Elmhurst Avenue stop on the M and R trains is four blocks away.
A NoHo lot is on its way to getting a new 10-story-tall office building designed by prolific architect Morris Adjmi. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the revised proposal for such a structure at 363 Lafayette Street.

Many of Bushwick’s little townhouses have expansion potential, thanks to the neighborhood’s relatively generous zoning. One two-story brick rowhouse at 352 Weirfield Street is about to gain two more floors, and YIMBY has a rendering for the project.
The administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio is now looking into proposing the rezoning of the Brooklyn neighborhood Gowanus, Politico reported. Beginning this fall, the Department of City Planning will conduct a study of the neighborhood. Following the completion of the study, the city will decide whether or not to officially propose a rezoning and begin the review and approval process. Between 2013 and 2015, local politicians met with community leaders and residents to discuss future changes to the neighborhood. The analysis, called Bridging Gowanus, determined more residential development would be acceptable only if affordable units are mixed into the new construction and existing manufacturing and office spaces are retained. If an official rezoning proposal is eventually launched, it should take roughly seven months for it to be passed.
