Brooklyn-based developer Mayer Meisels has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 1814 Bleecker Street, in western Ridgewood, five blocks from the M train’s stop at Seneca Avenue. The building will measure 4,995 square feet, which means units will more than likely be rentals, averaging 715 square feet apiece. Brooklyn-based Barry Goldsmith is the applicant of record, and the existing two-story, single-family home must first be demolished.
Two four-story residential buildings, totaling 14 residential units, are now under construction at 9-11 Orient Avenue, in northern East Williamsburg, two blocks from the L train’s Graham Avenue stop. According to Brownstoner, the buildings have risen to one story, and Great Neck-based Shalom Rubinoff is developing. The residential units will average just 690 square feet, indicative of rentals. Gerald Caliendo is designing, and completion is expected in Spring 2016.
Northern Greenpoint has construction on every corner, but the biggest new building headed to the formerly quaint waterfront neighborhood is a 39-story tower at 145-155 West Street, once home to the Huxley Envelope factory. Mack Real Estate and Palin Enterprises demolished the large single-story building in January, and now they’re driving piles for the planned 392-foot-tall high rise between Huron and India Streets on the East River. When YIMBY stopped by the site, we found this rendering tacked to the construction fence.
Whitewell Properties has filed applications for four three-story residential buildings, with a combined total of eight units, spanning the lots of 118-130 Bard Avenue, in West New Brighton (on Staten Island’s North Shore). The development will net 8,145 square feet in residential space, which works out to units averaging 1,020 square feet. Think Design Architecture is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story house — last purchased for $560,037 in 2014 — must first be demolished.
Astoria-based Voxx Realty has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building on the small triangular property at 40-20 23rd Road, in northern Astoria’s Ditmars-Steinway. The building is located eight blocks east of the N/Q train’s Astoria Blvd stop, and will boast units averaging 1,365 square feet. Anastasios Giannopoulos is the architect of record, and an existing single-story structure must first be removed.
