L+M Development Partners is moving forward with an unknown development at 23-32 Park Row, in the Financial District. Last week, YIMBY forumers posted that demolition permits have been approved to take down the four-story building at 23-27 Park Row, the five-story property at 29 Park Row, and the five-story structure at 31-32 Park Row. All the buildings were formerly used as commercial-retail space and demolition can commence as soon as the structures are prepped. The property assemblage consists of a 17,855 square-foot plot with just under 150 feet of street front on Park Row. The site can accommodate 267,825 square feet in development potential as-of-right, according to our calculations, and it could sprout an office or hotel building with retail space, or a mixed-use project with residential units.
Mike Humphrey, doing business as a White Plains-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 69,990 square-foot storage facility at 134-31 Merrick Boulevard, in St. Albans, located on the southeastern end of Queens. The commercial building will probably be self-storage and includes accessory office space and six loading berths. The prolific industrial architect Butz Wilber, based in Virginia, is the applicant of record. The site is currently home to an automobile business that recycles wrecked cars, and multiple warehouse structures must first be demolished.
Zhong Chen has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 108-62 42nd Avenue, in North Corona, three blocks from the 111th Street stop on the 7 train. The project will measure 4,562 square feet in its entirety and includes 3,499 square feet of residential space. That means full-floor units will measure an average 1,166 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. Permits to demolish the existing 2.5-story, two-unit building were filed earlier this month.
Jacob Movtady, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for an eight-story, 18-unit residential building at 263 Franklin Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, located two blocks from the Bedford – Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. The entire project will measure 16,493 square feet and 11,284 square feet of that will be residential space. That means units will average a rental-sized 627 square feet apiece. The residential lobby and recreational space will be located on the ground floor and retail space will occupy the cellar. Floral Park-based Sion Consulting Engineering is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide lot is currently vacant.
In early 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the multi-building, 223-unit residential conversion of the former Cabrini Medical Center, located in Gramercy on the block bound by Second and Third Avenues and East 19th and 20th Streets. Now, Curbed NY has the latest details and renderings of the project, dubbed Gramercy Square, which include slight modifications to the exterior and slightly different unit counts. At 215 East 19th Street, the main 16-story hospital building will get a new façade and will get 130 condominiums, down from 140. The building at 225 East 19th Street will be transformed into 48 residential units, down from 54. The new-construction building at 220 East 20th Street will have eight full-floor units, and the last property at 230 East 20th Street will be converted into 37 units. The entire development will have 12,000 square feet of amenity space. Chetrit Group, Clipper Equity, and Real Property Group are developing, and Woods Bagot is designing.
