Permits Filed: 100 Lenox Road, Flatbush

Recently, green construction walls went up around an iconic detached house at the corner of Bedford Avenue and Lenox Road in Flatbush. Although it’s not the most beautiful house in the neighborhood, the two-and-a-half story home is one of several that lends an air of dignity to this stretch of Bedford in Prospect Lefferts Gardens and northern Flatbush. Now, like many standalone houses in the neighborhood, it will bite the dust for an apartment building. Plans were filed last week to erect a seven-story apartment building there at 100 Lenox Road, a few blocks southeast of Prospect Park.

32-Story, 440-Unit Mixed-Use Tower Rises to 26th Floor at 86 Fleet Place, Downtown Brooklyn

Construction is now underway on the 26th floor of the planned 32-story, 440-unit mixed-use building under development at 86 Fleet Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user nyc1. The latest building permits indicate the 351-foot-tall tower will eventually encompass 427,346 square feet. It will host 10,813 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units averaging 871 square feet apiece. Since a leasing office is included, at least a number of the units will be rental apartments. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous March update, when the structure was a single story up. John Catsimatidis’s Red Apple Group is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2017.

Avenir, Three-Building, 486-Unit Mixed-Use Project at 1072 & 1075 West Side Avenue, Approved by Jersey City

Late last month, the Jersey City Planning Board approved Amerestate Holdings’s plans for three new mixed-use buildings, ranging from three to eight stories in height, at 1072 West Side Avenue and 1075 West Side Avenue, located along Broadway in the Marion section of Jersey City. Approval was also granted to combine the development assemblage into a single property, Jersey Digs reported. Across the entire project, dubbed Avenir, 486 residential units are planned in addition to 25,452 square feet of retail space. The stretch of West Side Avenue between Broadway and Fayette Avenue will be de-mapped and transformed into a public plaza. Amenities include a 384-car parking garage and rooftop terraces. The single-story building that was once home to Puccini’s Restaurant, a single-story former textile factory, and a four-story apartment building must first be demolished. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is behind the design. The Journal Square PATH station is located eight blocks away.

Four Two-Story, Two-Family Houses Coming to 161-16 Baisley Boulevard, Rochdale, Queens

Property owner Anthony Namdar, doing business as TNE Buildings, has filed applications for four two-story, two-family houses at 161-16 – 161-20 Baisley Boulevard and 161-26 – 161-30 Baisley Boulevard, in Rochdale. That’s in southeastern Queens, near JFK International Airport. Two of the new buildings will each measure 3,397 square feet and the other two will each measure 3,990 square feet. Across all four, the full-floor residential units should average 1,231 square feet, indicative of family-sized configurations. Each house will come with two off-street parking spaces, one of which will be houses in a 300-square-foot garage. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record. The development sites — separated by a two-story mixed-use building — are currently vacant.
