Chan, doing business as an anonymous Queens-based LLC, has filed applications for three three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 42-16 – 42-22 74th Street, in northern Elmhurst. Each will measure 4,074 square feet and, across all three, the full-floor residential units should average a family-sized 1,009 square feet. Amenities include a total of six off-street parking spaces and laundry facilities in the cellars. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record.

The Greek School of Plato, based in Brooklyn and headed by Vacilios K. Danas, has revived new building applications for a single-story, 6,104-square-foot facility at 670 92nd Street, in southern Bay Ridge. The plans were approved back in May. The new school building, which will be geared towards pre-kindergarten children, will contain a cafeteria, administrative offices, and classrooms. Felix Tambasco’s Brooklyn-based Sears Tambasco Architects is the architect of record. The 70-foot-wide, 4,532-square-foot property is currently occupied by a single-story building.

Brooklyn-based EM Development has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 145 Huntington Street, in southern Carroll Gardens.

There will be two units per floor on the ground and second floors, followed by two more apartments across the top two floors.

The supertall mixed-use tower planned at 45 Broad Street will shimmer at its apex, over 1,100 feet above the streets of Lower Manhattan. But at ground level, the Financial District project will bring new services to those who won’t even enter the building. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to approve new subway elevators planned on Broad Street.
On a cold January day in 2009, a pipe burst and flooded the boiler of the Home Street Presbyterian Church, in the Foxhurst section of the Bronx. A small electrical fire destroyed the boiler for good, and the company that insured the church failed during the Great Recession. Facing a winter without heat and lacking the funds to repair the boiler, the congregation scattered to other churches in the South Bronx, and the little chapel on Home Street was abandoned. Now, the 1910 structure will be demolished to make way for affordable senior housing.
