Aleksander Karasik, of Karasik Law Group, has filed applications to build a two-story, three-unit residential building on the vacant lots at 2998-3002 Gerritsen Avenue, in the largely single-family neighborhood of Gerritsen Beach. The building will measure 3,230 square feet in total, which means units should average 1,075 square feet. Hansa Building Engineering is the applicant of record, and the site’s former two-story home was demolished in 2010.
Excavation has begun at 45-08 23rd Street, in Long Island City, where Mary Rera is planning a three-story, four-unit mixed-use building, according to The Court Square Blog. Specific square-footage breakdowns are unavailable, but the entire structure, mechanical space included, will measure 6,000 square feet. Schematics were posted on-site late last year, and Edward Hicks is the architect of record.
The eastern edge of Bushwick, where the L train swings above ground next to cemeteries, serves as the borderlands of gentrified Brooklyn, just before Broadway Junction and East New York. But that hasn’t stopped condo developers from flocking there, looking to take advantage of relatively cheap property. And today YIMBY has the first look at a four-story condo project under construction at 1290-1300 Decatur Street, between Knickerbocker and Wilson Avenue.
The Moinian Group owns a 29-story residential and office building at 100 John Street in the heart of the Financial District, and now they want to add a 24-story addition to the five-story commercial building next door at 102 John Street, making the buildings the same height.
Apartment buildings have sprouted on nearly every piece of available property near the Metropolitan Avenue L stop in Williamsburg, but one developer has decided to expand and convert a warehouse at 82 Ainslie Street instead of tearing it down.
