G&S Developments has filed applications for twin two-story, two-unit residential buildings spanning the lots at 144-19 – 144-23 224th Street, in Brookville, six blocks south of the LIRR’s Laurelton station.

Nearly a year ago, applications were filed for a nine-story, 32-unit residential building at 42-50 27th Street, in Long Island City, and now those plans have been approved, with demolition underway to remove the existing two-story structure, per The Court Square Blog. The new building will measure 24,860 square feet, which works out to an average unit of 775 square feet. Ampiera Group is developing, and Jon K Yung’s Flushing-based MY Architect is the applicant of record.

Tadao Ando is the project’s design architect, while Gabellini Sheppard Associates is the applicant of record, and completion is expected in November 2016.
