Isaac Itah has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit townhouse on the 17-foot-wide lot at 813 Greene Avenue, in central Bedford-Stuyvesant, four blocks from the Kosciuszko Street stop on the J train. The building will total 3,479 square feet, and each unit will spread across two floors, averaging a spacious 1,740 square feet. Bahram Tehrani’s Jamaica-based BTE Design Services is the applicant of record, and the lot appears vacant.
Kevin Shane and New Jersey-based Jeff Jordan Architects have conceptualized a 200-foot tall, 5,000-foot long pedestrian bridge linking Jersey City to Battery Park City, in Downtown Manhattan.

The bridge would include both pedestrian and bike lanes, as well as retail spaces, works of art, park space, and solar panels.
