An anonymous Brooklyn-based incorporation has filed applications for a five-story, 16-unit mixed-use building at 24 Wilson Avenue, in eastern Bushwick. The project will measure 16,738 square feet and include 1,372 square feet of medical offices on the ground floor. The second through fifth floors will contain residential units, which should average 686 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. There will also be 10 off-street parking spaces. Dezhang Fang’s Flushing-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot assemblage is occupied by two single-story commercial buildings. Demolition permits were filed in September.
A Bronx-based property owner has filed applications for two two-story, two-family houses at 2061-2065 Narragansett Avenue, in the East Bronx’s Morris Park section.

Across both structures, the residential units should average 1,757 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. Each house will also come with two off-street parking spaces.

Over the last three years, the parking lot at 114 Mulberry Street has become the centerpiece of the Little Italy Street Art Project, a collection of murals and installations that stretches along Mulberry from Canal to Broome streets. Now, like seemingly every other vacant property in lower Manhattan, it will soon be filled with apartments.
