An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for two buildings with a total of nine residential units at 167 and 169 Lorimer Street, in the Broadway Triangle section of Williamsburg. A four-story, three-unit building measuring 10,989 square feet is slated for 167 Lorimer Street, while a six-story, six-unit building measuring 13,824 square feet is planned at 169 Lorimer Street. Across both buildings, the apartments should average 2,034 square feet apiece, indicative of units with family-sized configurations. De-Jan Lu’s Greenwich Village-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 6,900-square-foot assemblage is mostly vacant, except for a 20-foot-wide, single-story warehouse. Demolition permits were filed in November.
A Valhalla, N.Y.-based property owner has filed applications for two two-story, two-family houses at 3258 and 3260 Waterbury Avenue, in the East Bronx’s Country Club section. The new buildings will measure 4,232 square feet and 4,225 square feet, respectively. Across both, the full-floor residential units should average 1,774 square feet apiece, indicative of apartments with family-sized configurations. Each structure will also come with three off-street parking spaces. Gino O. Longo’s College Point-based firm is the architect of record. The 8,123-square-foot lot is occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in September.
The Richmond University Medical Center has filed applications to expand, by 34,175 square feet, its hospital, located at 355 Bard Avenue in Randall Manor, located on Staten Island’s North Shore.

Staten Island Borough President James Oddo also allocated $2.5 million for the project. A construction timeline has not been disclosed. Midtown West-based Bohler Engineering is the applicant of record.
It’s been a little over four months since we checked in on the construction at 153 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights. Now, scaffolding removal is underway at the 19-story, 60-unit building between Clinton and Court streets. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo sent to YIMBY by prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners are the developers. Navid Maqami’s S9 Architecture is responsible for the design.
Foundation work appears to be underway on the eight-story, 18-unit mixed-use building under development at 1875 Broadway, located on the corner of DeSales Place in eastern Bushwick.

The project includes the conversion of a four-story structure at 11 DeSales Place and the construction of a six-story structure to the north, which has topped out, featuring an additional 58 residential units and 1,215 square feet of community facility space.
