A Queens-based property owner has filed applications for two four-story, six-unit residential buildings at 31-31 and 31-33 30th Street, in the heart of Astoria. Both buildings will measure 6,163 square feet each. Across both, the residential units should average 750 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Dezhang Fang’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot assemblage is occupied by two two-story townhouses.

Hoboken, N.J.-based NJ Equity Investors has proposed to build an 18-unit residential building at 73-87 Fourth Avenue, in Newark’s North Ward. The apartments will be condominiums, although it’s unclear how large or tall the building will be, Jersey Digs reported. The site, acquired for just $440,000 in 2015, consists of a small, vacant single-story commercial building. The Newark Zoning Board of Adjustments will be presented the proposal today. A construction timeline has not been disclosed.
Last year, YIMBY gave you the first look at the residential expansion planned for 207 South 3rd Street in Williamsburg. Now we’ve got new renderings of the project, which is under construction at the corner of Roebling Street. The updated images show factory-style windows, glassy balconies with landscaping, and a gray brick facade. However, the boxy, protruding shape and the double-height ground floor remain the same as the original design.
