Mikhail Dekhtyar has filed applications for a three-story, nine-unit residential building at 2756 East 23rd Street, in southern Sheepshead Bay, eight blocks from the neighborhood’s subway station serviced by the B and Q trains.

The six residential units will share 6,705 square feet of total residential space, for average individual homes of 1,118 square feet. Also Staten Island-based Joseph Morace is the architect of record, and the site’s old 1.5-story home was demolished earlier this year.
