Midwood-based BWH Construction has filed applications for an eight-story, 26-unit residential building at 1251 East 19th Street, in Midwood, three blocks from the Q train’s Avenue M stop. The building will measure 31,895 square feet, which means units will average 1,227 square feet apiece, possibly making for condominiums. Felix Pustylnik is the applicant of record. The 2.5-story home at 1251 East 19th Street was demolished over the past month, but demolition has not yet begun at the three-story residential building spanning Nos. 1943-1947.
Bed-Stuy-based CS Real Estate has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 1266 Pacific Street, in western Crown Heights, a block from the Nostrand Avenue LIRR station and three blocks from the A and C subways.

Units will measure an average 850 square feet apiece, and Rego Park-based Diego Aguilera is the architect of record.
