Brooklyn-based Candor Capital has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 476 Washington Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill. The structure will measure 6,533 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 1,250 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are in the works. The bottom unit will feature additional space in the cellar, while the top one will boast a roof deck. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based Beam Group is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a dilapidated three-story townhouse that has been neglected for over a decade. Demolition permits haven’t yet been filed. Since the site is located within the Clinton Hill Historic District, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will have to approve both the demolition of the existing structure and the design of the new one. The Clinton-Washington Avenues stop on the A/C trains is two blocks away.
Work is now underway to convert the dilapidated three-story (plus basement), 12-unit single-room-occupancy (SRO) building at 226 West 132nd Street, in Harlem, into four residential apartments. Construction on the building can be seen in a photo posted to Harlem+Bespoke. Permits at the Buildings Department indicate there will be 3,384 square feet of residential space, which means the project’s four full-floor apartments should average 846 square feet apiece. It’s unclear if the apartments will be condominiums or rentals. Renovations to the structure include a rebuilding of the interior spaces, foundational work, and new windows. Chi F. Lau’s TriBeCa-based architectural firm is the architect of record and David Lavipour is the property owner. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
Queens-based property owner Lakhwinder Singh has filed applications for three two-story, two-family houses at 131-03 – 131-09 133rd Street, in South Ozone Park. Two of them will measure 3,020 square feet, while the third will measure a slightly smaller 2,856 square feet. Across all three, their full-floor residential units should average 898 square feet apiece, indicative of smaller family-sized configurations. Giuseppe Bonomo’s Staten Island-based Design Build Staten Island Inc. is the architect of record. The 9,000-square-foot lot, located on the corner of 131st Avenue, is currently partially occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits haven’t yet been filed. The site is located just blocks from the northern edge of John F. Kennedy International Airport.
