After 50,000 tenants applied to live in the affordable apartments at Stagg Group’s first project in Norwood, Bedford Park Manor, the Bronx developer paid $4.1 million for a property only a few blocks north at 3084 Webster Avenue. Now they’ve filed plans to build an 11-story apartment building on the L-shaped lot between 202nd and 203rd Streets.
Property owner Ruo Ruo Yang has filed applications for a seven-story, eight-unit residential building at 37-34 89th Street, in Jackson Heights, right around the corner from the 7 train’s stop at 90th Street and Elmhurst Avenue. The building will total 8,595 square feet, and units will average 1,074 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is designing, and permits were filed earlier this month to demolish an existing two-story home.
In February, glassy renderings surfaced for a 12-story apartment building at 29 Clay Street in Greenpoint. Now the project has taken one more step toward reality with a new building application for a 60-unit development on the property between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street.
The lovely 19th century building at the corner of Prince and Mott Streets in Nolita has been an orphanage, a school, and a convent, but now a developer has begun transforming the landmarked structure into condos. Today, YIMBY has a new rendering of the structure’s restored facade, as well as a series of images based on historic photographs of the property at 34 Prince Street.
Michael Paul Enterprises has filed applications to combine and enlarge two four-story townhouses at 163-165 East 62nd Street, on the Upper East Side. The expanded building will gain two stories, and will stand six stories and 60 feet to the roof. Five residential units will spread across 11,654 square feet, which translates into average units of 2,331 square feet, indicative of condos. Thomas Vail’s Vail Associates Architects is the applicant of record.
