Flushing-based Hang Chen has filed applications for three two-unit residential buildings at 45-41 – 45-47 Robinson Street, in East Flushing. The entire development will total 5,392 square feet in residential space, and each two-story building will split the square-footage roughly equally. This translates into an average unit size of 899 square feet. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record, and permits were filed back in June to demolish two wood-frame houses.
A Borough Park-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1416 49th Street, in central Borough Park, located three blocks from the D train’s stop at 50th Street. It will measure 8,778 square feet in total, which means units will average 1,097 square feet apiece. Ruslan Goychayev’s Brooklyn-based RSLN Architecture is the architect of record, and permits were filed in September to demolish an existing two-story house.
David Blum, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 97 Lynch Street, in southern Williamsburg, located five blocks south of the Hewes Street stop on the J and M trains. It will measure 5,443 square feet, which means units will average a very spacious 2,722 square feet apiece. Combined with relatively high ceilings, high-end townhouse units are likely. Bahram Tehrani’s Jamaica-based BTE Design Services is the applicant of record, and the site’s old two-story building was demolished in 2006.
He Fen Zhu, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 132-48 41st Avenue, in downtown Flushing, two blocks away from the 7 train’s stop at Main Street. The structure will measure a total 6,864 square feet, which includes 1,368 square feet for a health care facility on the ground and cellar levels. On the floors above, residential units will average 1,100 square feet apiece. James Cheng’s Flushing-based Urban Architectural Design is the applicant of record, and the site’s two-story predecessor was demolished last month.
