260 South Street

66-Story, 1,400-Unit Mixed-Income Residential Tower Planned at 260 South Street, Lower East Side

Two Bridges Associates (a partnership between L+M Development Partners and the CIM Group) filed pre-applications earlier this year with the Department of City Planning for a 66-story, 1,400-unit residential tower at 260 South Street, on the Lower East Side. The building, which is in the early stages of development, will encompass 1.1-million square feet and stand 718 feet in height, the Lo-Down reported. Twenty-five percent of the project’s residential units, or 350 apartments, will be designated as affordable housing. The structure would be built on an existing parking lot along South Street. An underground parking garage would be built to retain the spaces. In addition to a new tower, the project includes expanding the retail footprint on the ground floors of 265 Cherry Street and 275 Cherry Street, two existing 26-story residential towers (called Lands End II) with 491 apartments located on the northern end of the property. Rutgers Park, located on the western end, is also expected to see a renovation. It’s unclear whether the project requires approval via the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP).


223 Collfield Avenue

Twin Three-Story, Two-Family Houses Coming to 223 Collfield Avenue, Westerleigh, Staten Island

Staten Island-based EJM Development has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 223-227 Collfield Avenue, in Westerleigh, located along Staten Island’s North Shore. Each will measure 4,130 square feet and the units will boast family-sized configurations. There will be one apartment located on each ground floor, followed by another apartment spanning each second and third floor. In addition, each house will feature a 275-square-foot, single-car garage. Emanuel Lo Bue’s Staten Island-based architectural firm Lo Bau Valenziano is the architect of record. The 100-foot-wide, 10,000-square-foot property was occupied by a single-story house until it was demolished last month. The lot has already been subdivided into two 50-foot-wide tax lots.


97-16 124th Street

Three-Story, Two-Family Residential Project Planned at 97-16 124th Street, Richmond Hill

Queens-based property owner Mohammed K. Assim has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit residential building at 97-16 124th Street, in Richmond Hill. The structure will measure a relatively large 5,972 square feet. One of the units will span across the ground and second floors, followed by the second unit on the third floor. Based on the amount of residential space the property will have, units with family-sized configurations are surely in the works. Jose A. Velasquez’s South Ozone Park-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,570-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-and-a-half-story, wood-frame building. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Lefferts Boulevard Station on the A train is seven blocks away. YIMBY reported on filings for a similar project at the site in 2014, but those plans have since been withdrawn.

Three-Story, Two-Unit Mixed-Use Building Planned at 136 Jamaica Avenue, East New York

The structure will measure 6,593 square feet. The ground floor will host 1,774 square feet of commercial-retail and 488 square feet of medical offices. There will be two full-floor residential units, averaging 1,035 square feet apiece, on the floors above. In addition, a two-car parking garage will be located in the cellar. Qiang Su’s Chinatown-based Su Architect is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,306-square-foot property is currently vacant. The Alabama Avenue stop on the J/Z trains is five blocks away.
