Ana Eskreis, head of Max Studio, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 39 South Elliott Place, in Fort Greene. That’s steps away from the G train’s Fulton Street stop and the C train’s Lafayette Avenue stop. The building will measure 2,472 square feet in total. Triplex units will span the cellar through second floors and a duplex will take up the upper two floors. The project is being designed in-house.
Property owner George Elliott, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, seven-unit residential building at 30-49 38th Street, in Astoria, eight blocks east of the N and Q trains’ stop at 30th Avenue.

Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is the applicant of record, and permits were filed in July to demolish an existing two-story, multi-family townhouse.
