Property owner Mario Del Brun has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 1027 Nelson Avenue, in Highbridge, located six blocks from the 4 train’s stop at 161st Street/Yankee Stadium. The building will rise on a small, 19-foot-wide vacant lot and will measure just 3,083 square feet, which translates into average units of 771 square feet each. Bakhtiar Sahmloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Design Group is the applicant of record.
Brooklyn-based Lev J Management has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 703 Lafayette Avenue, in central Bedford-Stuyvesant, located three blocks east of the Nostrand Avenue stop on the G train. The building will measure 5,957 square feet, which means units will average 745 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. The project will include a fifth-floor penthouse, rooftop space, and mezzanine levels on the lower floors. IMC Architecture is the architect of record, and permits were filed in August to demolish the existing two-story townhouse.
Not much development happens in East Elmhurst, a sleepy little neighborhood in Queens sandwiched in between LaGuardia Airport, Willets Point, and Flushing Bay. The working class area doesn’t have any subway lines, unless residents want to take a long walk or a bus to the 7 train at Roosevelt Avenue.
Fong Benny, operating under an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 838 41st Street, in Sunset Park, four blocks from the D train’s stop at 9th Avenue. The building will measure 9,034 square feet, and a 2,462 square-foot daycare facility will span the ground and cellar levels. Beginning on the second floor, units will average 822 square feet apiece. Brooklyn-based Shiming Tam is the architect of record, and a two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Brooklyn-based Ranco Capital has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 1487 Broadway, in southern Bushwick, two blocks before the J train’s stop at Halsey Street. The project will total 15,377 square feet, and includes 3,000 and 377 square feet of retail and health care facility spaces, respectively, on the ground floor. Residential units will average a relatively spacious 1,200 square feet apiece.
