As federal recovery money has slowly flowed into the Rockaways, YIMBY has noticed plenty of new building permits for one- and two-family homes, but very few for multi-family developments. However, it seems like the tide may be starting to turn for the flood-damaged peninsula in eastern Queens: plans have just been filed for a four-story apartment building at 11-30 McBride Street in Far Rockaway.
Property owner Daudi Rodriguez has filed applications for two two-story, two-unit residential buildings at the lots 2414-2416 Bouck Avenue, in Pelham Gardens. The four residential units will be split across nearly 6,900 square feet of residential space, and Jung Y. Shin is the architect of record. An existing two-story, single-family building must first be demolished.
An LLC has filed construction permits for a planned three-story, 30,810 square-foot commercial self-storage building at the vacant lot at 4275 Old Amboy Road, in central Great Kills. Tamar Kisilevitz, of Scarano Architect, is the architect of record, and the site’s former single-story warehouse was demolished last September.
YIMBY brought you news early last year of a the 12-story, 42-condo-unit mixed-use building planned for 1 John Street, in Dumbo, and now the project is now rising. Alloy Development and Monadnock Development are developing the building, which is three or four stories up, according to Curbed. An in-house team at Alloy is designing, and completion is expected by 2016.
An LLC has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 174 Richardson Street, in northern Williamsburg. The building will measure nearly 4,750 square feet, and Philip Toscano is designing. The existing two-story, two-unit townhouse passed pre-demolition inspection earlier in May.
