Property owner Kaplan Ibraimovic has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 35 Monroe Avenue, in St. George, on Staten Island. The little multi-family home will measure 2,256 square feet, and full-floor units will average a rental-sized 752 square feet apiece. Staten Island-based Frank Vaccaro is the applicant of record, and a recessed garage, originally associated with the neighboring residence, must first be demolished.
Comunilife and Woodhull Medical Center are planning to build a six-story, 89-unit all-affordable residential building at 185 Throop Avenue, at a vacant lot in northern Bedford-Stuyvesant where the medical center is also located.

Brooklyn Community Board 3 recently approved the project, although applications have yet to be filed with the DOB.
In the last few days of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications to construct a four-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 681 Franklin Avenue, in northwestern Crown Heights, six blocks from the Franklin Avenue stop on the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. Now, Curbed and DNAinfo have renderings for various versions of the project. The building will actually appear as six stories and stand 60 feet tall, thanks to two mezzanine levels which weren’t included in the previous floor count. The building will also include 2,134 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Boaz Golani’s Bronx-based BMG Design Build is the architect of record, and the lot is currently vacant.
