The volunteers behind Roger That Garden in Crown Heights have spent the last year and a half fighting to save their little plot at Rogers Avenue and Park Place from a developer, but it looks like the garden’s days are officially numbered. A new building application was filed today for a four-story residential building on the property at 115 Rogers Avenue, also known as 749 Park Place.
Joseph Sarcona has filed applications for twin two-story, single-family homes — each measuring 2,100 square feet — spanning the lots 143-145 Arthur Avenue, in Arrochar, located just south of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on Staten Island. Dennis Dellandelo is the architect of record, an the site’s former two-story abode was demolished this past January.
Brownstoner reports that the six-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 79 Grand Street in Williamsburg has topped-out. A retail component will measure nearly 1,590 square feet on the ground level, and Philip Toscano Architects is designing. The nearly 8,000 square-foot building is currently getting its façade, and completion is likely later this year.
Newly filed construction applications have helped realize Geneva Partners’ development plans for an assemblage of lots spanning 1629-1637 43rd Street, in eastern Borough Park near Kensington. Five three-story buildings will hold 15 units, which will be divided across 19,500 square feet of residential space. Kenneth Thomas is designing, and three dilapidated 2.5-story structures were demolished this past March.
The co-op board comprising 20 units representing the seven-story, 20,000 square-foot building at 159-161 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights, has placed the property on the market for $30 million. Per The Real Deal, the building is being advertised as a development site, and demolishing the existing structure would allow a new 45,000 square foot structure. The building was converted to residential use in 1982.
