Sam Weisner, operating as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 1475 60th Street, in southern Borough Park, two blocks from the D train’s stop at 62nd Street. Each building will contain three units and the entire development will span 7,198 square feet; that translates into an average unit size of 1,200 square feet. Yevgeniy Mekhtiyev’s Brooklyn-based IMC Architecture is the applicant of record, and demolition permits were filed earlier this month to raze an existing three-story, three-family house.
Property owner Corey Sherman, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential townhouse at 217 West 122nd Street, in Harlem, located a few blocks from a slew of subways with stops at 125th Street. The building will rise on a vacant 12-foot-wide lot and will measure 3,502 square feet. Both residential units will be duplexes and should split the building relatively evenly, taking up two floors each. Queens-based Panagiotis Vikatos is the architect of record, and another unassociated six-unit building is also planned next door.
Exterior completion is approaching for one of the most dramatic additions to the Downtown skyline in decades. The Helmut Jahn-designed residential skyscraper at 50 West Street reached its full height of 784 feet in September. As of today, most scaffolding has been removed from the crown, revealing a slanted concrete halo. The elegant concrete band will soon be obscured by a cocoon of curvy glass, which is being installed only nine floors below.
Alliance Private Capital Group has filed applications for a six-story, 37-unit residential building at 526 Union Avenue, in north Williamsburg, located four blocks north of the G train’s stop at Metropolitan Avenue. The building will measure 26,389 square feet, which translates into an average unit of 713 square feet, indicative of rentals. De-Jan Lu’s Manhattan-based architectural firm DJLU Architect filed for the permit, and the 10,000 square-foot lot is currently being used for parking. The developer picked up the plot for $9.6 million late last year.
Floral Park-based O&B Properties has filed applications to building a six-unit residential development spanning 104-84 – 104-88 165th Street, in Jamaica, located a number of blocks south of Jamaica Avenue. The developer will expand an existing two-story, single-family home to accommodate two units, and build two additional two-story, two-unit attached residential buildings. The expanded structure will have units averaging 824 square feet, while the new buildings will have family-sized units averaging 1,516 square feet. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record.
