Avi Baranes has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 352 Willis Avenue, in Mott Haven, six blocks from the 6 train’s stop at 3rd Avenue – 138th Street. The building will measure just 4,223 square feet, and will include 1,425 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Above, full-floor residential units will average 1,400 square feet, indicative of condos, which would be big news for this part of the Bronx. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the architect of record, and the corner lot comes vacant.
Crown Heights-based Crow Hill Development has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit residential building at 3311 Newkirk Avenue, in southern East Flatbush, four blocks east of the 2 and 5 trains’ stop at Newkirk Avenue. The building will measure 10,294 square feet in total, which means units will average a relatively spacious 1,030 square feet each. The Dumbo-based architecture firm Formactiv is designing, and an existing two-story house must first be demolished.
