Four-Story, Seven- and Nine-Unit Residential Buildings Planned at 2749 Cruger Avenue, Allerton
Newburgh, N.Y.-based property owner Artan Prelaj has filed applications for two four-story, multi-unit residential buildings at 2747-2749 Cruger Avenue, in Allerton, located around the block from the Allerton Avenue stop on the 2/5 trains. From north to south, the buildings will measure 6,219 and 7,543 square feet each. The smaller building will contain seven units averaging 714 square feet apiece, while the larger building will host nine units averaging 659 square feet apiece, both indicative of rental apartments. Both buildings will be topped by a penthouse level that will be associated with one of the fourth floor apartments. There will also be private residential storage in the cellar. Fernando Geremia’s Pelham, N.Y.-based Fred Geremia Architects & Planners is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a two-story brick house. Permits were filed to demolish it last year.
