Permits have been filed to construct a new two-family home at 147-53A 231st Street in the Brookville section of Queens. The house would be 21-feet-tall with the two units spread across 2,726 square feet. That would mean an average unit size of 1,363 square feet. Each floor would have one unit and the first floor unit would also have access to the cellar. The Schedule A seems to indicate one parking space on the property. It is not near a subway line, but the Q111 and Q114 bus lines can be picked up less than a block away on 147th Avenue. Both Idlewild Park and Brookville Park are in close proximity. Sam Muratov is apparently the developer with Queens-based Russell L. Dance III the applicant of record. An existing 1.5-story home must be demolished.
Back in the winter, Toll Brothers closed on a property at 351 Broadway, at Leonard Street, in TriBeCa. Now we know what they want to do with it. According to filings, the plan is for a 210-foot, 19-story building at 91 Leonard Street. The building, which would wrap around on to Broadway, would cover a total of 160,845 square feet. There would be 153,047 square feet of residential space for 112 units, making for an average size of about 1,366 square feet.
Permits have been filed for a new eight-unit, five-story mixed-use building at 170 Marcy Avenue in Williamsburg, between Broadway and South 5th Street. It would be 47-feet-tall, and units will spread across 4,314 square feet, averaging a small 539 square feet apiece. There would be two apartments each on the second through fifth floors, and both the second floor and roof would have assembly areas for 75 people each. The first floor would have two retail spaces spanning 1,495 square feet.
Permits have been filed to construct a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 834 Quincy Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The spot is right next door to the Epiphany Church, down the street from the Brooklyn Excelsior Charter School, and around the corner from the NYPD’s 81st Precinct. The development would be 45 feet tall and have its seven apartments spread across 4,953 square feet. That would mean an average unit size of about 708 square feet.
It’s about to get very busy for a corner in the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn. In addition to the seven-story building planned at 500 Livonia Avenue, HPD plans another seven-story building spanning 81,435 square feet at 453 Hinsdale Street. The former will have 90 units while the latter will have 62 units, though the Schedule A seems to indicate 59 units. Those apartments will spread across 69,634 square feet. If the number is indeed 62, that means units will average a spacious 1,123 square feet apiece. A 1,094 square-foot community facility and 10,707 square-foot retail space will be on the ground level, plus storage for 31 bicycles. Like 500 Livonia Avenue, Christine Hunter of Manhattan-based Magnusson Architecture and Planning is the applicant or record.
