Jiang Xiang Gao, operating under an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, multi-family residential buildings at 41-10 – 41-12 69th Street, in southern Woodside, two blocks south of the 7 train’s stop at 69th Street. The development will total six residential units — three in each building — spread across 6,640 square feet, which means apartments will average 1,107 square feet apiece. Robert Lin’s Flushing-based A&T Engineering is the applicant of record, and demolition permits for the existing two-story house were filed in August.
Susan Miller, operating as the Miller Family Trust, has filed applications for a five-story, three-unit residential building at 371 13th Street, in southern Park Slope, four blocks south of the 7th Avenue stop on the F and G trains. The building will measure 4,984 square feet, which means units will average a spacious 1,661 square feet each. Marc Albertin’s Financial District-based Plainspace Inc. is the applicant of record, and demolition began on the existing wood-frame house over the summer.
Out of all the towers currently under construction in Manhattan, the most significantly relative to its surrounding neighborhood is likely 45 East 22nd Street. The Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed building will eventually stand 777 feet tall, but it’s already poking above the local concrete jungle, and its sloped cantilever is also now obvious, per the latest from Tectonic.
The Third Avenue Elevated once ran through East Tremont, linking it with Manhattan all the way down to Chatham Square, in what is now Chinatown. The decaying wooden house at 772 East 182nd Street was likely built around the same time as the elevated, in the first few years of the 20th century. After the city suspended the elevated service in the 1950s and ’60s, the area began to slide into abandonment and poverty. But the neighborhood is slowly rebounding with the arrival of small, market-rate construction projects. Yesterday, new building applications were filed for a seven-story, 18-unit development that would replace the old house at 772 East 182nd Street, just west of the Bronx Zoo.
Jamaica-based Francis Lewis House Corporation has filed applications to expand the single-story, 20-foot-wide rowhouse at 588 Schenectady Avenue, in northern East Flatbush, into a four-story, eight-unit residential building. Located right across from the Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, the expanded building will measure 4,792 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 600 square feet each. Bakhtiar Shamloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Group Design is the applicant of record.
