Property owner Thomas Mulzac, doing business as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, multi-unit residential buildings at 766-768 Macon Street, in Ocean Hill, located three blocks from the Halsey Street stop on the J train. Each one will measure 4,983 square feet each, although one will contain four units and the other will have five units. Across the entire development, units will average 1,107 square feet apiece, which means both rentals or condos may be in the works. Michael McCaw’s Brooklyn-based McCaw Michael Ivanhoe Architect is the architect of record.
The Greenburgh Town Board has approved a deal to sell the former Frank’s Nursery property at 715 Dobbs Ferry Road, in the southern Westchester County town of Greenburgh, to Capital Seniors Housing LLC for $3.5 million. According to Westfair, the developer hopes to build a 90- to 100-unit assisted living facility for seniors on the 6.89-acre site. The town has put forward no more than $2 million to help remediate the property and Capital will have up to two years to receive the proper approvals and permits for construction. The property will not have to be rezoned, something the Board favored when they reviewed plans put forth by other developers. One such proposal called for a 200-unit apartment complex.
