Back in 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an 11-story, 22-unit mixed-use building at 101 Morningside Avenue, in Harlem between West 123rd and 124th Streets. Then earlier this year, Azimuth Development Group landed a $20 million construction loan for the project. Per Harlem+Bespoke, an on-site rendering has been posted of the 44,062 square-foot building, which is being designed by Aufgang Architects. The residential units will average 1,650 square feet apiece and will be condominiums. On the cellar and ground levels, St. Luke Baptist Church will occupy 7,761 square feet of space. The vacant four-story building at 101 Morningside still has to be demolished. Two old townhouses at 369-371 West 123rd Street were demolished this past year, although the building at no. 373 will remain untouched. Completion is expected in late 2017.
Long Island City-based United Air Conditioning, an engineering and utility company, has filed applications for a five-story, 21-unit residential building at 25-53 38th Street, in central Astoria, located nine blocks from the 30th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains. The structure will measure 14,263 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 679 square feet apiece. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects is the applicant of record. The assemblage consists of two small townhouses and permits have not been filed yet to knock them down.
Staten Island-based Venmar Properties has filed applications for nine detached, two-family residential buildings at 567-591 Marcy Avenue and 75-79 Venus Place, in Woodrow, located on Staten Island’s southern end. The development site is a vacant stretch of Marcy Avenue between Woodrow Road and Venus Place, and each three-story house will measure an average 2,648 square feet. As you would expect, the units will be family-sized, with one unit located on the ground floor and the second taking up the upper two levels in each house. Staten Island-based Calvanico Associates is the architect of record.
Last week, YIMBY told you about Brookland Capital’s plans for new buildings in Ocean Hill and Flatbush, and now we have the first look at one of their projects at 664 Jefferson Avenue, in the heart of Bed-Stuy.
Another cluster of two-story homes in Astoria are set to bite the dust for a seven-story apartment building. Developer Park Construction Corp. has filed plans to build a 56-unit project at 21-13 31st Avenue, between 21st and 23rd Streets.
