Flushing-based AXL Home LLC has filed applications for twin three-story, two-family houses at 43-58 and 43-60 164th Street, in East Flushing. The buildings will each measure 4,000 square feet, and across both, the residential units should average 1,496 square feet apiece. That means the apartments will likely be geared towards families. There will be a total of two off-street parking spaces. Jeff Stones’s Floral Park, N.Y.-based firm is the applicant of record. The 60-foot-wide, 6,000-square-foot property was, until August, occupied by a one-and-a-half-story house. The Long Island Rail Road’s Broadway station is three blocks north.
Foundations have been completed for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 47-09 5th Street, in the Hunters Point neighborhood of Long Island City, close to the East River waterfront. Building permits list Shahram Nassi as the owner, with Jieming Wang of LMW Engineering Group LLC attached as the applicant of record. Brooklyn-based MC Superstructure Inc. is listed as the general contractor.
SROs, or single room occupancy hotels, house some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in New York City, but policies created dating to the 1950s and 1960s have resulted in residential hotels being gradually converted to market-rate housing or hotels. Yesterday, an SRO owner in the Fordham Heights section of the Bronx filed plans to convert his five-story building at 2327 Grand Concourse to a hotel or a dormitory.
The chief executive officer of telecom company Altice, Dexter Goei, has filed applications to convert the three-story, 11-unit residential building at 138-140 West 11th Street, in Greenwich Village, into a single-family mansion. The plans were initially revealed over the summer when Goei acquired the 12,000-square-foot property, but the alteration permits offer additional details.
Foundation work is now underway for 36 four-story, two-family townhouses to be located at 11-05 – 11-21 46th Avenue, 11-06 – 11-16 45th Road, and 45-27 – 45-41 11th Street, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. Photos of the site have been posted by The Court Square Blog. The townhouses will measure between 3,950 and 4,954 square feet in size, and individual apartments should average 1,949 square feet apiece across the entire development. Valhalla, N.Y.-based GDC Properties is the developer and Newman Design Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2018.
