Property owner Salvador Ortiz, doing business as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 126 Manhattan Avenue, in central Williamsburg, located three blocks west of the Montrose Avenue stop on the L train. The project will measure 7,500 square feet, which means units will average 750 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. The structure would be topped by a rooftop recreation space, and Astoria-based Anthony Cucich is the architect of record.
Construction is chugging along on the banks of Newtown Creek in north Brooklyn, where Greenpoint Landing will eventually span 10 acres with 5,000 apartments. YIMBY swung by the megaproject earlier this month and caught up on the progress at three affordable rental buildings: 33 Eagle Street, 21 Commercial Street, and 5 Blue Slip.
The forest of high-rise towers in Long Island City is about to get a modest addition. New building applications have been filed for a seven-story, mixed-use project at 37-27 31st Street, beneath the elevated N/Q trains and just north of Sunnyside Yards.
Long Island-based property owner Ijaz Ahmad has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 3802 White Plains Road, in Williamsbridge, located directly below the 219th Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The project will measure a total of 11,491 square feet and includes 3,470 square feet of medical offices across the ground and cellar levels. The residential units will begin on the second floor and should average roughly 800 square feet apiece. The building will be topped by a rooftop recreational space. Hackjong Choi’s TriBeCa-based Beyond Arch is the applicant of record.
Back in May, YIMBY reported on applications for a 21-story, 71-unit mixed-use building at 145 Madison Avenue, between East 31st and 32nd Streets in Midtown South. According to DNAinfo, Kahen Properties will rent 21 of the residential units at below-market rates, which would satisfy the inclusionary housing bonus and increase the project’s allowable FAR. The latest filings call for a 59,085 square-foot structure, which includes 2,779 square feet of retail on the ground floor and residential units averaging 793 square feet each. The Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect of record. Permits have been approved to demolish the existing six-story commercial building.
