Property owner Man Wai Lau, doing business as an anonymous Lower East Side-based LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, five-unit residential building at 441 East 87th Street, in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side. The project will measure 10,488 square feet and its residential units should average 1,670 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be one unit across the ground and second floors, followed by full-floor units on the third through sixth floors. Timothy Li’s Brooklyn-based TLI Architect is the architect of record. An existing three-story townhouse must first be demolished. Permits to raze the structure were filed in June.
A huge development with three 19-story buildings—two residential ones and a hotel—is coming to a Flushing industrial property that hotelier Sam Chang sold last year. The new developer, Flushing Point Holdings, filed plans for the two apartment towers today at 131-02 40th Road, also known as 40-70 Delong Street.
When YIMBY last reported on the residential building at 41-04 27th Street in northern Long Island City, at the end of June, it was noted that the nine-story project reached its topmost point. In the two months that have passed, the concrete frame has been sheathed in a curtain wall that looks ready to receive its panel cladding. The 32-unit property, developed by Great Stone Development and designed by Tan Architect, stands at the intersection of 27th Street and 41st Avenue. In conjunction with its equally-new neighbors, the building scale makes for an appropriate transition between the dense skyscraper district of Court Square to the south, and the traditional, rowhome-lined blocks of Dutch Kills to the north.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a two three-story, six-unit residential building at 275 Grafton Street, in Brownsville. The project will measure 3,593 square feet and its residential units should average 562.5 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Reza Khamcy’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based Icon Engineering is the applicant of record. The 37-foot-wide, 3,750-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story, single-family house. Demolition permits were filed in July. The Saratoga Avenue stop on the 3 train is around the block.
Construction has topped out at the five-story, 20-unit residential building under development at 44 Stanhope Street, in central Bushwick. The latest building permits indicate the structure measures 21,013 square feet and rises 55 feet above the street. Its residential units will be rental apartments, of which twenty percent (four units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, DNAinfo reported. The units should average 726 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, laundry facilities, storage for bikes, 10 off-street parking spaces, and a rooftop terrace. Greenwich Village-based DJLU Architects is behind the architecture and an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC is the property owner. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
