Construction has been completed on the five-story, 10-unit residential building under development at 1485 Gates Avenue, in central Bushwick. The latest building permits indicate it measures 11,017 square feet. Its residential units should average 873 square feet apiece, which mean they could be either condominiums or rental apartments. Amenities include laundry facilities and a rooftop recreational space. Yoel Berkovits is the developer. Beam Group is the design architect, while Joseph A. Mucciolo’s Long Island-based architectural firm is serving as the executive architect. Occupancy is expected soon. YIMBY first reported on the project when new building applications were filed in July of 2014. The Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues stop on the L and M trains is two blocks away.
Property owner Kevin Yang, doing business as an anonymous Whitestone-based LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, 12-unit residential building at 140-20 Cherry Avenue, located on the southern end of downtown Flushing.

Amenities include laundry facilities, six off-street parking spaces, and a rooftop terrace. There will also be doctor’s offices in the cellar. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. The 28-foot-wide, 2,800-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story house.
