Twin Three-Story, Two-Family Houses Coming to 165 Pleasant Plains Avenue, Pleasant Plains, Staten Island

Staten Island-based developer Jayden Estates has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 165-171 Pleasant Plains Avenue, in Pleasant Plains. That’s along Staten Island’s South Shore. The structures will measure 4,637 square feet each and, across both, the residential units should average a family-sized 1,738 square feet apiece. Each house will feature a built-in, single-car garage. Peter J. Calvanico’s Staten Island-based Calvanico Associates is the architect of record. The 11,614-square-foot property is occupied by a two-story, single-family house. Demolition permits were filed in May.

2.3-Million-Square-Foot Mixed-Use Development Planned at 450 Broad Street, Newark

Last week, the city of Newark announced that a 7.5-acre, 2.3-million-square-foot mixed-use development is in the works at 450 Broad Street. That’s downtown, on the current site of the Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium. The project will include residential units, office space, retail, and cultural space, Jersey Digs reported. The number of units wasn’t disclosed, but the site could easily accommodate over 1,000 of them. Lotus Equity Group is the developer and Practice for Architecture Urbanism is designing the project’s master plan. The 6,200-seat baseball stadium will be demolished. The four-story parking garage just south of it isn’t part of the site.
