Elizabeth McDonald, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for three four-story, multi-family residential buildings at 135-139 Sackett Street, in the Columbia Street Waterfront District, located seven blocks from the Carroll Street stop on the F and G trains. Each of the buildings will contain three residential units and will individually measure between 4,178 and 4,196 square feet. It appears each unit will spread across at least an entire floor, although each building also has a penthouse on the fourth floor. The penthouse space will probably be attached to the third-floor unit. Across the entire development, units should average 1,395 square feet apiece, so condos are definitely in the works. New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record.
Property owner Zhen Zun Li has filed applications for two three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 74-31 – 74-33 44th Avenue, in Elmhurst, four blocks south of subway stops on the E, F, M, R, and 7 trains and caught at the intersection of Broadway and Roosevelt Avenue. Each structure will measure 4,146 square feet in total, and there will be 6,270 square feet of residential space across both buildings. That means full-floor units will average 1,045 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed last October to raze the existing three-and-a-half-story wood-frame house.
John Culotta, head of the Staten Island-based Boulder Building Corp., has filed applications for three small residential buildings at 93-97 Boulder Street, in the south shore neighborhood of Woodrow. All of the buildings will have three stories, although two will each measure 1,806 square feet and contain two units while the third building will be fit for one family and will measure 2,029 square feet. The residential space across the development will total 4,714 square feet, although four of the units will average much less space than the single-family home. Stanley Krebushevski’s Staten Island-based SMK Architect is the applicant of record. The 68.5-foot-wide lot is currently vacant and must first be subdivided.
Brooklyn-based Horizon Construction Inc. has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 3019 Corlear Avenue, in the North Bronx’s Kingsbridge neighborhood, located four blocks from the 231st Street stop on the 1 train. The project, totaling 5,798 square feet, will feature 4,177 square feet of residential space, which means units will average a rental-sized 696 square feet apiece. Sometime in the area’s past, the street was raised and many of the older homes now sit somewhat below grade. The site consists of one of those buildings, and permits were filed to demolish the existing 2.5-story house last December. Lower Manhattan-based Chi F. Lau Architect is the applicant of record.
The city is about to rezone the northeastern swath of East New York around Broadway Junction, but development is still brewing at the neighborhood’s far-flung edges.
