Midtown South-based Shimon Properties has filed applications for four three-story, two-to-three-unit residential buildings at 53-60 – 53-68 61st Street, located on the corner of 54th Avenue in Maspeth. Three of the buildings will measure 3,640 square feet each and contain three apartments apiece. The fourth building will measure 4,360 square feet and will feature 1,270 square feet of medical offices on the ground floor, followed by two apartments on the floors above. Across all four buildings, the units should average 870 square feet apiece. David Nagan’s Fresh Meadows-based King David Architecture is the architect of record. The 10,823-square-foot assemblage is occupied by two single-story rowhouses. Demolition permits were filed in August.

Samuel Choi’s Brooklyn-based S&K Building System Solutions is the applicant of record. Move-ins can probably be expected imminently, if it’s not already occupied. The 36th Street stop on the D, N, and R trains is at the corner of the block.
