Queens-based property owner Bin Yan, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 101-16 – 101-18 Lewis Avenue, in Corona, located five blocks north of the Long Island Expressway. Each structure will measure just 3,600 square feet. Across both, the full-floor residential units should average 833 square feet apiece. The ground-floor of each structure will feature a single-car garage and laundry facilities will be located in the cellars. Thee Shiun Eric Ken’s Flushing-based company is the applicant of record. The project will rise on a 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot on the corner of 102nd Street. Demolition permits were filed in March to remove the site’s single-story occupant.
Brooklyn-based property owner David Mosseri has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 287 Midwood Street, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, located four blocks from the Sterling Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The structure will measure 6,000 square feet and its residential units should average 733 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two apartments per floor on the ground through second floors, followed by two units across both the third and fourth floors. David Nagan’s Fresh Meadows-based King David Architecture is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not yet been filed.
Back in September of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 505 Clinton Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill, located right above of the Clinton-Washington Avenues stop on the C train. Those plans never got off the ground and are now being replaced with ones for a six-story, 12-unit residential project. The latest new building application calls for one with 10,350 square feet of residential space, which means units should average 862.5 square feet apiece. The structure would be topped by a penthouse level, which would be associated with one of the sixth-floor apartments and would be a duplex. The development team has also changed since 2014, with Brooklyn-based Dimora NYC Inc. now the developer and Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Engineering as the architect. The 30-foot-wide site’s old two-story house was demolished in March.
Back in July of 2015, the Brearley School – a 700-student, all-girls prep school – announced plans for an eight- to 10-story academic building at 70-74 East End Avenue, located on the corner of East 83rd Street in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side. New details have been revealed in a DNAinfo report. The latest plans, which have not yet been filed with the Buildings Department, call for a 12-story building with classrooms and labs, a gymnasium, an auditorium, a library, a lounge, and a playground for younger students. The site can accommodate a new building of up to 75,780 square feet. KPMB Architects will be responsible for the design. The three five-story tenement buildings, previously occupied by 15 rent-stabilized tenants, have been vacated and demolition permits were filed in April. Completion is expected before September of 2019. Brearley’s current 12-story building at 610 East 83rd Street would then receive extensive renovations.
Back in early 2013, new building applications were filed for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 10-44 Jackson Avenue, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. The site’s two-story predecessor was demolished in late 2014 and, now, construction on the project has topped out, according to the Court Square Blog. The project will measure 12,283 square feet and will feature 1,670 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels. The units, which begin on the second floor, should average 686 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. It will be topped by an apartment that spans part of the sixth floor and an upper-level penthouse. Brooklyn-based property owner Tibi Zicherman is the developer, while Douglas Pulaski’s Bricolage Designs is the architect. Completion is expected later this year.
