Last night, 130 people crowded into a tiny dance rehearsal room above a theater in the East Village to talk about how they could turn struggling or vacant properties into affordable spaces.
Anthony Pistilli has filed applications for two three-story residential buildings, each containing 2 units, spanning the lots 273-277 8th Street, in Staten Island’s New Dorp. The four-total units will divide nearly 5,800 square feet of residential space, and Tony Sayad Architect is designing. Demolition of the existing single-story, two-family structure began earlier this month.
Scott Leon, head of JMC Gerritsen Realty LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, 18-unit residential development at the lots spanning 2126-2148 Gerritsen Avenue, in the northeaster corner of Sheepshead Bay. The units will be broken up between three buildings and will combine to net nearly 15,000 square feet; Harry Simino (of Simino Architect) is designing. A two-story, single-family abode and two single-story commercial structures must first be demolished.
After two years, property owner Isaac Schwartz has filed more applications for an 11-story, 71-unit residential building at 41-11 – 41-15 23rd Street in Long Island City . The structure will have 59,200 square feet of residential space, and Karl Fischer is designing. The building applications have just been approved, and the single-story warehouse and another two-story structure were demolished earlier this year.
