Joel Schwartz’s Brooklyn-based Southside Units has filed applications for a six-story, 11-unit residential building at 622 Myrtle Avenue, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, four blocks north of the Classon Avenue stop on the G train. The building will measure 9,408 square feet, which means units will average 855 square feet apiece. A retail unit will also be located in the cellar level, and Queens-based Julien Flander is the applicant of record. A three-story brick townhouse must first be demolished.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed the first few renderings of Extell Development’s 252 South Street, on the Lower East Side (in the Two Bridges neighborhood), and now Bloomberg Business has the full reveal for the 80-story tower. Dubbed One Manhattan Square, the building will have more than 800 condominiums, and will feature 50,000 square feet and 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, respectively. Foundation work is well underway, and completion is expected by early 2019. Adam Associates is the architect of record.
Property owner Ruo Ruo Yang has filed applications for a seven-story, eight-unit residential building at 37-34 89th Street, in Jackson Heights, right around the corner from the 7 train’s stop at 90th Street and Elmhurst Avenue. The building will total 8,595 square feet, and units will average 1,074 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is designing, and permits were filed earlier this month to demolish an existing two-story home.
Over a year ago, YIMBY reported on filings for a nine-story, 72-key mixed-use hotel project at 822 Fourth Avenue, in Greenwood, four blocks south of the R train’s stop on 25th Street. Yesterday, the building was resubmitted to the DOB with slight downward revisions, probably due to zoning restrictions. Sunset Park-based Signature Management Enterprises is still the developer, and the building will now rise eight stories and have 62 hotel rooms. Healthcare facilities will span 18,000 square feet across floors two through four, and Chi F. Lau is the architect of record.
In February, glassy renderings surfaced for a 12-story apartment building at 29 Clay Street in Greenpoint. Now the project has taken one more step toward reality with a new building application for a 60-unit development on the property between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street.
