An anonymous Floral Park, N.Y.-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 147-07 88th Avenue, in downtown Jamaica. The project will measure 13,578 square feet. It will feature a 484-square-foot retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units on the second through sixth floors. The apartments should average 1,309 square feet apiece, which suggests condominiums are likely in the works. Manish S. Savani’s Jamaica-based architecture firm is the architect of record. A two-story building must first be demolished. Permits were filed to do so in August.

Developer To Move Forward With As-Of-Right Plans At Long Island College Hospital Property, Cobble Hill

In 2015, Fortis Property Group laid out plans to redevelop the Long Island College Hospital property, located on several blocks in Cobble Hill. One proposal was for as-of-right development, while the other required an individual rezoning, approved through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). The developer has decided to move forward with the as-of-right plan, which will not include any affordable residential units, Politico reported.

New building applications call for 10 apartments and 5,500 square feet of residential space, for tiny apartments averaging 550 square feet apiece.
