A Queens-based property owner has filed applications for four three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 157-12 through 157-18 65th Avenue, located on the corner of Parsons Boulevard in Pomonok, Queens. Two of the buildings will measure 4,284 square feet each, while the other two will each measure a slightly smaller 3,936 square feet. Across all four buildings, the full-floor apartments should average 1,028 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. Shahriar Afshari’s Long Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 9,313-square-foot lot is occupied by the two-story Lutheran Church of the Redeemer. Permits were filed to raze the structure in August.

Union City, N.J.-based RJS Central has proposed to redevelop the two-story mixed-use building at 402 Central Avenue, located in The Heights section of Jersey City, into a four-story, 14-unit mixed-use structure. The existing ground-floor retail space, currently vacant, would be retained and receive a renovation of its own, Jersey Digs reported. The single apartment on the second floor would be joined by 13 additional apartments, presumably across the second through fourth floors. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment must approve the plans. A construction timeline has not been released.
