Property owner Shahida Khan has filed applications for a seven-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 65-27 Roosevelt Avenue, in Woodside, a stone’s throw away from the 7 train’s stop at 69th Street. The development will measure a total 10,833 square feet, and will include 1,715 square feet of ground-floor retail and 1,512 square feet of community facility on the second floor. Residential units above will average 761 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Flushing-based Ling Li is the architect of record, and a dilapidated two-story building must first be demolished.
Aviram Chen, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 19 Malta Street, in East New York’s western neighborhood of New Lots. Located five blocks from the L train’s stop at New Lots Avenue, the structure will measure 4,222 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 704 square feet apiece. An existing garage structure will have to be demolished, but the lot is otherwise empty. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record.
Property owner Alan Richer, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, eight-unit residential building at 27-21 27th Street, in Astoria, three blocks from the 30th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains. It will measure 5,726 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 716 square feet apiece. Some will be duplexes, according to the Schedule A. Astoria-based Christopher Papa is the architect of record, and an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
A former church (that was several things before that) is slated for a massive makeover and conversion, and we know what it will look like, thanks to the above photo. 599 Willoughby Avenue (a.k.a. 599-601 Willoughby Avenue) in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, formerly home to the Hebron Baptist Church, is set to become 16 residential units (though the math in the filing is a tad confusing).
Bjarke Ingels’ dramatic, tetrahedron-shaped rental building is already making its mark on the far west side, and we have some fresh renderings to go along with a new teaser site for the project at 625 West 57th Street, known as VIA 57 West.
