On the vacant triangular lot at 1815 Eastern Parkway, in northern Brownsville, Mayer Meisels has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building, four blocks from either the Rockaway Av. stop on the C train and the East New York LIRR station. The building will measure 9,720 square feet, which means units will average 972 square feet. Kenneth Thomas is the applicant of record.
Applications, originally filed in 2013, have surfaced for a three-story, five-unit residential building at 123 Franklin Avenue, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant. The building will measure 8,300 square feet, so units will average a spacious 1,660 square feet. The property owner is Sruly Rosenburg, and Julien Flander is the applicant of record. Demolition was approved for the existing three-story townhouse in June.
In April, YIMBY noted excavation was underway at 181 Front Street, in Dumbo, where Megalith Capital Management and Urban Realty Partners are building a 12-story, 105-unit rental building, which will also have 1,490 square feet of retail on the ground floor. Now, foundation work is beginning, according to Brownstoner. The project also consists of the conversion at 200 Water Street, where 15 condominiums are planned, and Aufgang Architects is designing, with completion slated for 2016.
Last year, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new hotel coming to 97 Wythe Avenue, between North 9th and 10th Streets, along a corridor that’s booming with new development. And now a tipster has sent YIMBY a rendering for New York’s first Hoxton Hotel, which is being designed by Perkins Eastman.
Rezonings in the South Bronx have spurred development in Morrisania, Melrose and Mott Haven, but new construction has been slow to arrive in the neighborhoods nearby, like Crotona Park East and Longwood. However, new building applications were filed over the weekend for a seven-story apartment building at 1417 Longfellow Avenue, between Jennings and Freeman Streets in Crotona Park East.
