Property owner Wing Kuen Tsoi has filed applications for a three-story, four-unit residential building at 278 Nassau Avenue, in eastern Greenpoint. The structure will measure 4,974 square feet. Each floor will host a single unit plus part of the building’s fourth apartment. The fourth apartment will have a townhouse-style configuration and will span across parts of all three floors. The residential units should average 1,243.5 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are likely in the works. Ying H. Li’s Brooklyn-based City Building NY Architect is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot plot, located on the corner of Morgan Avenue, is currently occupied by a single-story commercial structure. The G train’s Nassau Avenue stop is 13 blocks away.
Yonkers, N.Y.-based Llesh Lulaj has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 2250 Bassford Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Belmont section. The structure will encompass 8,143 square feet and its residential units should average 714 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two units on the ground floor, followed by three units each on the second and third floors, topped by two units across the fourth floor and an upper penthouse level. Fernando Geremia’s Pelham, N.Y.-based Fred Geremia Architect & Planners is the architect of record. The 2,603-square-foot plot is currently vacant. It’s located about an eighth of a mile from the 182nd-183rd Streets stop on the B/D trains.
