Great Neck-based Omri Bar-Mashiah has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 59 Quincy Street, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, four blocks south of the G train’s stop at Classon Avenue. The building will measure just 3,976 square feet, which works out to units averaging a rental-sized 663 square feet each. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the applicant of record, and the site’s old three-family townhouse was demolished by HPD in 1993.
A modern five-story apartment building is about to replace a little two-story brick townhouse at 96 16th Street, between 3rd and 4th Avenues in South Slope.
A Crown Heights landmark is still in danger of falling apart and a proposal to save it met with concern, but not approval, from the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday. The landmark in question is the George B. and Susan Elkins House at 1375 Dean Street. The current owner wants to convert the single-family structure to a four-family home, add glass enclosures on the sides, add skylights, change the attic, excavate in the cellar to give a higher ceiling height, and put on a glassy rear addition. It was the glass enclosures that really didn’t sit well with the commissioners.
Yesterday, we checked in on Two Trees’ new tower at 286 Ashland Place, where construction is making rapid headway. Work seems to be moving at a similar place at 333 Schermerhorn Street, just a few blocks away, where Douglas Steiner’s 53-story project dubbed “The Hub” is now roughly two-thirds of the way to its pinnacle, per the latest from Tectonic.
Flatiron District-based Sinha Development has filed applications for a seven-story, 27-unit residential building at 336 East 112th Street, in East Harlem, four blocks from the 110th Street stop on the 6 train. The building will measure a total 21,658 square feet, which means units will average 802 square feet apiece. Tribeca-based TRA Studio Architecture is the architect of record, and the site’s former single-story building was demolished earlier this year.
