Foundation work is now underway for the 14-story, 55-unit mixed-use building under development at 242 Broome Street (a.k.a. Site 1), located on the corner of Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user rbrome. The latest building permits indicate the new building will encompass 180,646 square feet. There will be 40,326 square feet of commercial-retail space across portions of the cellar through third floors. A bowling ally operated by Splitsville Luxury Lanes is expected to lease a significant amount of space. In addition, there will be 17,735 square feet of community facility space on the second through fourth floors. The space was once reserved for the Andy Warhol Museum, but plans for it have fallen through.
Queens-based Southern Plaza Corp. has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit residential building at 900 Madison Street, in northern Ocean Hill. It will measure 3,892 square feet, 2,978 square feet of which will be residential space. It will host a single apartment on the ground and cellar levels, followed by a second apartment on the second, third, and penthouse levels. Russell A. Dance’s South Ozone Park-based RLD3 Engineering is the applicant of record. The site, a 16-foot-wide, 1,667-square-foot property, is currently vacant. The Gates Avenue stop on the J/Z trains is located three blocks to the north.
Property owner Emilio Dimatteo, doing business as an anonymous Yonkers, N.Y.-based LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, four-unit residential buildings at 1011-1013 Adee Avenue, in the East Bronx’s Williamsbridge section. Each will measure 4,000 square feet and the residential units should average 755 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Between the two, there will be a total of six off-street parking spaces. Gino Longo’s College Point-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot property is currently vacant. The site was occupied by a two-story house until that was demolished in late 2012. The Burke Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains is located 10 blocks away.

There will be two units per floor, although one of the ground-floor apartments will contain space in the cellar, and one of the top-floor apartments will feature space in an upper mezzanine level. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based Beam Group is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot property is currently occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Myrtle Avenue stop on the J, M, and Z trains is located three blocks away.
A rendering has surfaced of the planned four-story, 10-unit residential building at 568 Lafayette Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant. The latest building permits — which YIMBY first reported on in August of 2015 — indicate the project will measure 8,542 square feet. The residential units should average 655 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Two units will occupy each of the ground and second floors, followed by three units on the third floor, and three units across the fourth and penthouse levels. Amenities include laundry facilities, bike storage, and a 300-square-foot rear yard. Borough Park-based Candor Capital is the developer and Boaz Golani’s Bronx-based Beam Group is behind the architecture. A four-story townhouse must first be demolished. The Bedford-Nostrand Avenues stop on the G train is a few steps away.
