Brooklyn-based Soft Stone Development has filed applications for a three-story, two-family residential building at 1441 58th Street, in the heart of Borough Park, located four blocks from the 62nd Street stop on the D train. The project will encompass 7,212 square feet, and its residential units should average a very spacious 3,574 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are surely in the works. The ground and cellar levels will contain one apartment, while the second and third floors will host the other unit. Genaro Urueta’s Maspeth-based Studio Gallos is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed back in December.

Woodhaven-based Joe Mashieh has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 437 Cleveland Street, in northern East New York, located four blocks from the Shepherd Avenue stop on the C train. The structure will measure 3,942 square feet. Each floor will host a single apartment, and the units should average a family-sized 986 square feet apiece. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the applicant of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,458-square-foot lot is currently vacant. The site benefits from the East New York Rezoning that was approved last month, and now sits within an R5B district. The site can accommodate up to 3,318 square feet of residential space, which means 361 square feet of air rights will remain if the latest plans move forward.

Each house will come with a 223-square-foot, single-car garage, in addition to two other off-street parking spaces. Staten Island-based Calvanico Associates is the architect of record. The 90-foot-wide plot, on the corner of Sideview Avenue, was occupied by a single-story home until it was demolished earlier this year.
