Demolition wrapped up on a former theater building at 100 Avenue A, in the East Village, late last year, where Ben Shaoul is planning a six-story, 29-unit mixed-use building. Now, the project is finally underway, and the structure is a story above street level, per EV Grieve. The building will total 27,693 square feet, and features 6,355 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels. Residential units will average 736 square feet apiece, and Issac & Stern Architects are designing.
Last month, applications were finally filed for a long-vacant site at 1733 Lexington Avenue in East Harlem, on the corner of 108th Street. YIMBY now has the reveal for the development, which will give rise to a small but contemporary mixed-use project standing eight stories tall.

Abdul Wahid has filed applications for a four-story, 16,563 square-foot religiously affiliated community building at 2105 82nd Street, in southern Bensonhurst, five blocks from the D train’s stop at 20th Avenue.

Long Island-based Willy Zambrano is the architect of record, and demolition permits were filed for two houses earlier this year.
