Staten Island-based Foster Development has filed applications for five two-story, two-family houses at 109-125 Greenfield Avenue, in Clifton. That’s a neighborhood along Staten Island’s North Shore. The buildings will each measure between 3,960 square feet and 4,043 square feet. Across the entire development, the full-floor residential units should average a family-sized 1,331 square feet apiece. Each house will also feature a single-car garage in the cellar. Joseph M. Morace’s Staten Island-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 188-foot-wide, 23,124-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The site is three blocks from the neighborhood’s Staten Island Railway station.
Façade work is in full swing at 27-21 44th Drive in Long Island City. The 27-story apartment building known as The Edison reached its final height in early June, when the national flag was hoisted atop its concrete bulkhead. At that point, the roughly 300-foot-tall structure became the tenth-tallest within the Court Square district, though taller neighbors rising nearby are already surpassing it. However, the building would remain highly visible thanks to its position at the epicenter of the resurgent neighborhood.
Since being four stories in height back in February, the 19-story, 60-unit mixed-use building under construction at 153 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights, has topped out and is now receiving its façade elements. The latest photo was posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest permits indicate the structure encompasses 90,850 square feet. It will host 4,465 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, followed by residential units on the floors above. It’s unclear if the units will be rentals or condominiums, but they will average 1,196 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, laundry facilities, a children’s playroom, storage for 30 bikes, and a rooftop terrace. Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners are the developers. S9 Architecture is behind the architecture. Completion is expected by the end of the year.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 1214 Greene Avenue, in central Bushwick.

Some of the apartments will also feature space within the cellar and an upper penthouse level. Laundry facilities will be located in the cellar.

Across the entire project, the apartments should average 1,770 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record.
