Chaya Buxbaum has filed applications for four small residential buildings at 347 Willoughby Avenue, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, located three blocks north of the Bedford-Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. The assemblage will be broken into four tax lots, where two of them will have three residential units and the other two will have two units. In other words, 10 units will spread across a total 7,906 square feet of space for average units of 790 square feet apiece. Robert Siqeca’s Brooklyn-based Structural Engineering and Detailing is the applicant of record. Two existing three-story townhouses and an auto-body shop must first be demolished.
Ben Baum, of Brooklyn-based Real Properties, has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 600-602 Oak Terrace, in Mott Haven, located four blocks from the 6 train’s Brook Avenue stop. One of the buildings will measure 5,564 square feet while the other 5,476 square feet; across the development, units will average a rental-sized 690 square feet apiece. Flavio Barros’ Long Island City-based CB Engineering is the applicant of record, and the plot of land is currently vacant.
Last year, Megalith Capital shelled out $85 million for three buildings on West 66th Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West. Now the firm has filed plans for a 25-story mixed-use development there at 36 West 66th Street, down the block from Lincoln Center.
Property owner Carol Katzburg has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 1225 42nd Street, in northern Borough Park, three blocks from the D train’s stop at Fort Hamilton Parkway. The structure will measure 8,796 square feet in total, and that figure includes 2,297 square feet of community facility space on the ground floor. The full-floor residential units above will average a family-sized 2,166 square feet apiece. Queens-based Grigori Zinkevitch is the architect of record, and an existing 2.5-story house must first be demolished.
Back in September, renderings surfaced of a Morris Adjmi-designed eight-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 258-260 Bowery, in Nolita, and now Premier Equities has acquired the development site for $10 million, according to Commercial Observer, in a deal brokered by RKF. The planned development will total 23,500 square feet, and retail space, totaling 6,610 square feet, will span the cellar through second floors. The upper floors will house condominiums. Residential square footage hasn’t been announced or filed. So, unit sizes aren’t yet available. Demolition began over the summer on the site’s former three-story building.
