Over the summer, Adam America Real Estate and MSD Partners picked up a taxi garage at 22-12 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City for $43.5 million. Now the developers have filed applications for their planned residential building.
Summit Development & Management Corp. is proposing a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 70 East Broadway, on the corner of Roosevelt Boulevard in Long Beach, located on Nassau County’s south shore barrier island. The project requires five separate variances before it can be built, according to the LI Herald, one of which includes a height variance. Ten three-bedroom condominium units would be built on the 11,000 square-foot plot if the Long Beach Zoning Board of Appeals approves the project, which it expects to review in March. The lot is currently zoned for multi-family buildings no more than four stories in height. The new building would replace a two-story, three-family home.
Brooklyn-based Ofer Prager has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 688 Lincoln Avenue, in the far eastern reaches of East New York, located across from the five-tower, 1,525-unit Linden Plaza Apartments complex. The new building will measure 4,230 square feet and will contain 3,093 square feet of residential space. The full-floor residential units will average 1,031 square feet apiece and will probably be geared towards families. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed to remove the existing single-story home this past summer.
Brooklyn-based Isaac Stern, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 1598-1600 Eastern Parkway, in southern Ocean Hill, located nine blocks south of the Rockaway Avenue Station on the A and C trains. Each one will measure 7,620 square feet in total, and they will have a combined total of 12,382 square feet of residential space. That means units will average 774 square feet apiece, although the top two units in each structure will be larger because those will have access to fifth-floor penthouses. Hudson Valley-based Kenneth Thomas is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide lot has been long-vacant.
Two years ago, the city upzoned a big vacant lot at 158-15 Union Turnpike, in the Hillcrest section of eastern Queens. Now a four-story, mixed-use rental building is under construction on the property between Parsons Boulevard and 160th Street, and YIMBY has renderings of the project.
