After the City Council greenlighted One Vanderbilt’s rezoning in May, it was only a matter of time until developer SL Green pushed forward with construction of the 67-story commercial tower. And on Friday, they filed plans for the project, under the property’s main address at 51 East 42nd Street.
Raymond Guindi has filed applications for a five-story, 25-unit residential building at 1 Brighton 3rd Road, in Brighton Beach, five blocks from the F train’s stop at Neptune Avenue. The building will measure 27,866 square feet, which means units will average 1,115 square feet, likely indicating condominiums. Downtown Brooklyn-based Sears Tambasco Architects is designing, and four single-story homes must first be demolished.
Rego Park-based Neriya Borukhov has filed applications for a seven-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 253 Nostrand Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, only steps away from the G train’s Nostrand stop. The building will measure 6,984 square feet in total, and will feature a 261 square-foot retail component on the ground floor. Starting on the second floor, residential units will average 840 square feet each. Roman Sorokko’s Douglaston-based Versatile Engineering is the applicant of record.
The Citizens Budget Commission released a report earlier this week that predicted the MTA wouldn’t be able to fully repair all 467 of its subway stations until 2067, with suggestions on how the transit authority could finance repairs faster. The group suggested raising money through public-private partnerships, which can be incredibly effective. But when they’re negotiated poorly, these partnerships can cost cities and states millions.
Property owner Vincent Cangialosi has filed applications for two three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 59-35 Menahan Street, in Ridgewood, eight blocks north of the M train’s Forest Avenue stop. A smaller six-unit building had been filed in January, but those plans now appear outdated. The latest filings call for six residential units — three in each building — spread across a total of 13,630 square feet, for very spacious units averaging 2,270 square feet. Salvatore Prainito’s Astoria-based Prainito Design Group is the applicant of record, and the site’s two-story home was filed for demolition earlier this month.
