Abraham Strulovitch had originally filed applications in December, during the building code crunch, for a residential project at 3707 Blackstone Avenue, in the more built-up southern portion of Riverdale. Amendments to the plan now call for an eight-story, 68-unit residential building measuring 40,520 square feet, which will span 3707-3719 Blackstone Avenue and 620 West 238th Street. The average unit will fall just short of 600 square feet, likely indicating rentals, and Shahriar Afshari is designing. The site has been rid of its two-story predecessor, which sat dilapidated until its demise in 2014.
Marin Management Corp. has filed applications at 1647-1651 1st Avenue, in Yorkville, for a 15-story, 38-unit mixed-use building measuring nearly 59,500 square feet. The retail component will take up 1,780 square feet, and DJ Associates Architect is designing. The assemblage includes three four- and five-story tenement buildings on the corner of East 86th Street, and demolition permits have not been filed yet.
The developer of two other Flushing megaprojects is planning a third 13-story apartment tower on the site of Flushing Mall, which shuttered in January after 15 years as one of the neighborhood’s busiest food courts and commercial hubs.
Shanti Ammar, president of Anata Inc., has filed applications for four two-story, two-unit residential buildings spanning vacant lots at 144-16 to 144-24 106th Avenue, south of Downtown Jamaica.

Sigmund Freund’s Taron Walworth LLC has filed applications for two four-story, six-unit residential buildings at the vacant lots at 212 and 222 Walworth Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Julien Flander is designing both 4,000-square-foot buildings, and the filings appear to be associated with the other townhouses recently developed on adjacent lots. The site’s former two-story structures were demolished in 1994 and 2006, respectively.
