Long Island-based Gagandeep Singh has filed applications for five small residential buildings at 710-718 East 221st Street, in Williamsbridge, located a block north of the 219th Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. At 710 East 221st Street, a four-story, eight-unit building is planned, with average units measuring a rental-sized 622 square feet apiece. At tax lot nos. 712 to 718, a row of four, smaller two-story buildings will line the street, each containing two residential units. All of the smaller buildings will boast large, full-floor apartments that average roughly 1,750 square feet in size. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record, and permits were filed in September to demolish the existing two-story house.
People are already living at Halcyon, HFZ Capital Group’s 123-unit development at 305 East 51st Street in Midtown East, but construction is still incomplete. The retail space along Second Avenue is still being built, as are the 32nd and 33rd floor duplex penthouse units. The lobby, however, was recently completed and YIMBY got a look at it, a fourth floor model unit, and the views from one of the penthouses.
Hotels are cropping up all over Williamsburg and Bushwick, but over the weekend, we spotted plans for a six-story hotel in a rather unusual spot – on Broadway in Bed-Stuy, next to the border with Bushwick. The 65-foot-tall building would rise at 1200 Broadway, between Lafayette Avenue and Van Buren Street.
A five-story apartment building may replace a little 1910s wood frame house at 27-15 27th Street in Astoria. New building applications were filed last week to build 10 apartments on the site between Newtown and 30th Avenues, a few blocks south of the Astoria Boulevard stop on the N/Q trains.
41-21 28th Street has risen to its third level, on its way to its final height of 185 feet. The project, developed by All Year Management, will house 166 residential units spread across 126,718 square feet.
