Property owner David Berman, head of Klacken Corp., has filed applications for seven two-family residential buildings spanning 10-36 Wandel Avenue, in Fox Hills, located in northeastern Staten Island. The entire development will measure 17,448 square feet in residential space, and units will average 1,246 square feet, although buildings and units will vary in size. Each building will stand three stories and require significant excavation work, and permits for retaining walls have already been filed. Staten Island-based Ryan & Vaccaro Architects is the architect of record, and additional houses may possibly lack filings.
Developer Kenny Liu has filed applications for a seven-story, 50-unit mixed-use building at 97-41 – 97-49 63rd Drive, in Rego Park, two blocks from the 63rd Drive/Rego Park stop on the M and R trains. The building will measure 53,209 square feet, which includes 11,929 square feet of health care facilities on the ground and second floor. The residential units will be condominiums and average 825 square feet apiece; two units will feature a eighth-floor penthouse. Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the architect of record, and permits were filed this past August to demolish five residential buildings.
Property owner Sean Coyne has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 1549 St. Lawrence Avenue, just south of Van Nest, located four blocks from the East 180th Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure just 2,673 square feet, and a single unit will be located on the ground floor, while the second will span the second and third floors; the fourth floor will house an enclosed terrace. Nikola Martinovic’s Hell’s Kitchen-based INM Architects is designing, and the lot is currently vacant.
Leonid Berlinkov, doing business as an LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 407 Ocean View Avenue, in Brighton Beach, two blocks away from the Brighton Beach stop on the B and Q lines. The building will total 4,246 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 708 square feet apiece, although the residence on the fourth floor will also include a fifth-floor penthouse. Coney Island-based Zarina Ross’s Arcon Studio is the applicant of record, and permits were filed to demolish the existing single-story house in April.
Earlier this week, we posted photos of work at 217 West 57th Street as viewed from the street level, and now we have a fresh set of overhead shots from reader Andrew McKeon, featuring both 220 Central Park South and 217 West 57th Street. And when comparing with the last set of similar shots from February, progress has been very significant.
