Property owner Solomon Feder, head of Velocity Framers USA, has filed applications for an eight-story, 16-unit residential building at the vacant lot of 876 Bergen Street, in northwestern Crown Heights. Located five blocks south of the Franklin Avenue station on the A/C lines, the building will measure 10,846 square feet, which works out to units averaging a rental-sized 680 square feet. Asher Hershkowitz is the architect of record.
The Universal Church has filed applications for a six-story, 63,340 square-foot place of worship at 68-03 Roosevelt Avenue, in Woodside, right under the 69th Street stop on the 7 train. The building will include classrooms, rectory units, and multi-purpose rooms, and will occupy a large portion of the block. Mothusi Phometsi, of M3G Design, is the architect of record, and the church’s existing single-story building must first be demolished.
Saint Joseph’s Medical Center plans to purchase the dilapidated two-story structure at 108-110 Port Richmond Avenue, on Staten Island’s North Shore, and develop a 77-unit supportive housing facility, according to DNAinfo.

The state will approve the plans after the community has 75 days to express concerns.
UPDATE: while permits would seem to indicate condominium’s given the developer’s LLC, a rep for HTO has corrected YIMBY, and 411 Ninth Avenue will actually have rentals.
