Bradley Associates of Staten Island Inc. has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 16-18 Oakley Place, in New Dorp, on Staten Island’s East Shore.

Morace’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 10,000-square-foot site’s two-story predecessor was demolished earlier this month. The New Dorp stop on the Staten Island Railway is six blocks away.
