Great Neck-based Shelter Rock Builders has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 1355 Plimpton Avenue, in Highbridge, seven blocks from the 167th Street stop on the 4 train. The building will measure 4,769 square feet in total, which means full-floor units will measure 1,192 square feet; the fourth-floor unit will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and the site’s former two-story house was demolished in the 1990s.
Brooklyn-based Empire State Management has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 231 Franklin Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, three blocks from the Classon Avenue stop on the G train. The building will measure 5,005 square feet in total, and units will average 715 square feet apiece. Rego Park-based Diego Aguilera is the architect of record, and the existing two-story townhouse was filed for demolition in July.
Kingston Property’s planned nine-story, 22-unit residential building is now two stories above street level at 89-14 150th Street, in downtown Jamaica, a few blocks north the stations for the E, J and Z trains (on Archer Avenue). The building will measure 22,691 square feet, and the units will be condos, averaging 1,031 square feet apiece; there will only be two- and three-bedroom configurations. A small health care facility will operate in the basement level, and completion is expected in 2017. Maspeth-based Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is designing.
Back in June, YIMBY reported on filings to convert the eight-story Polhemus Building at 350 Henry Street, in Cobble Hill, into 17 residential units. Since the building is landmarked, approval from the LPC is required, and according to Brooklyn Daily Eagle, plans have received the green light. The units will likely be condos, averaging a spacious 2,520 square feet apiece in the 43,187 square-foot structure. Fortis Property Group is developing, and BKSK Architects is designing.
Back in 2014, we reported on permits for a new 52-story hotel at 138 East 50th Street, between Lexington and Third Avenues in Midtown East. YIMBY can now reveal the latest plans for the site, which have changed significantly, and the entirety of the building above the retail base will be condominiums. The project has also received a significant height boost, and is now slated to stand 64 stories and 803 feet tall, with Pelli Clarke Pelli serving as the design architect.
