Bronx-based A&J Holding USA has filed applications for three three-story, two-family houses at 4135A – 4135C De Reimer Avenue, in the East Bronx section of Wakefield. The buildings will each measure 3,175 square feet and will host a single unit on their ground floors, followed by a second unit across the two upper levels. Across all three houses, the apartments should average a family-sized 1,190 square feet apiece. Each house will also come with two off-street parking spaces, one of which will be housed in a 250-square-foot garage. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record. The 75-foot-wide plot currently contains the foundational remains of a stalled-out project.
Permits have been approved for two attached three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 2054 85th Street, in southern Bensonhurst. Each will measure 3,782 square feet and have full-floor residential units that should average 1,239 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be a total of six off-street parking spaces. An anonymous Bayside-based LLC is listed as the property owner and Steven Schneider’s New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the architect of record. The 6,000-square-foot property was previously occupied by two two-and-a-half-story houses until they were demolished in March of 2015. The 20th Avenue stop on the D train is around the corner.
Staten Island-based property owner James Mangone has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 370-374 Crystal Avenue, in Westerleigh. That’s a neighborhood just north of CUNY College of Staten Island. Each of the buildings will measure 3,459 square feet. In both, there will be one unit on the ground floor, followed by a second unit on the two upper floors. They should average 1,198 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized apartments. Each will come with a single-car, 297-square-foot garage. James V. Morri’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 8,000-square-foot plot was occupied by a single-story house until that was demolished earlier this month.
Construction is now underway on the ground floor of 15 Hudson Yards, the 70-story, 391-unit residential tower at the corner of Eleventh Avenue and West 30th Street, in the Hudson Yards District. The latest photos are courtesy of Tectonic, who posted them to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower will eventually encompass 980,274 square feet and stand 912 feet above street level, not quite the supertall mark of 984 feet. It will contain 285 market-rate condominium units ranging from 843-square-foot one-bedrooms to nearly 5,200-square-foot penthouses. There will be an additional 106 residential units (probably rentals) designated as affordable. Related Companies and Oxford are the developers. Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group are the design architects, while Ismael Leyva Architects is the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2018. The steel structure seen behind 15 Hudson Yards is The Shed, formerly known as the Culture Shed.
Foundation work is well underway, now that concrete has been poured, for the planned 49-story, 483-unit mixed-use tower under development at 118 Fulton Street, in the Financial District. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The new building will eventually encompass 510,928 square feet and stand 574 feet above street level, as YIMBY reported back in July, when an updated rendering was revealed. There will be 5,366 square feet of commercial-retail space across the ground and second floors. The residential units, rental apartments, should average 975 square feet apiece, and will be accompanied by a slew of amenities. Carmel Partners is the developer and SLCE Architects is the architect of record. Completion can probably be expected in 2018.
