Meals on Wheels of Staten Island will be getting a new home, thanks to Tuesday’s approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The beloved organization has outgrown its home in Richmond County and the city found it a site at the former Seaview Hospital tuberculosis treatment campus, which sits in the New York City Farm Colony – Seaview Hospital Historic District. The address is listed as 460 Brielle Avenue. In July, a presentation was made to the commission, but it was found to be too industrial for the setting. The revised design easily won over the commissioners.
Anthony Federici, doing business as AFMM LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 57-27 Granger Street, in Corona, a few blocks north of the LIE and a slew of bus lines. The building will measure 6,688 square feet, and units will average 836 square feet. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and demolition kicked off on the existing recessed two-story home late last month.
Eyal Ovadia, doing business as an LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 694 Monroe Street, in central Bedford-Stuyvesant, seven blocks south of the J train’s stop at Kosciuszko Street and Broadway.
