Lightstone Developing 10-Story, 428-Unit Residential Project At 30-17 40th Avenue, Long Island City

Late last year, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 428-unit residential building at 30-17 40th Avenue, in northern Long Island City, and now Curbed reports the Lightstone Group is the developer. Per filings with the DOB, the building will measure 293,703 square feet, but that only includes a portion of the building’s entire area, which will measure 413,000 square feet in total. Retail space will also measure 3,181 square feet on the ground floor. The project will be made up of studios, one-, and two-bedroom units, as well as 22,000 square feet of amenity space. Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects is the applicant of record, and completion is expected in 2017.

Five-Story, Seven-Unit Residential Building Planned At 30-49 38th Street, Astoria

Property owner George Elliott, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, seven-unit residential building at 30-49 38th Street, in Astoria, eight blocks east of the N and Q trains’ stop at 30th Avenue. The building will measure 4,981 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 712 square feet apiece. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is the applicant of record, and permits were filed in July to demolish an existing two-story, multi-family townhouse.

Permits Filed: 32 New York Avenue, Bed-Stuy

The two short blocks between Atlantic Avenue and Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant were once considered undesirable for residential development, because they’re sandwiched between two bustling commercial thoroughfares and two noisy train lines—the elevated Long Island Railroad along Atlantic and the A and C subways rumbling just below Fulton Street. They were transitional, slightly industrial, and the victims of urban renewal schemes. But now developers priced out of the more desirable parts of Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights are looking here, and noticing the benefits of brownstone blocks so close to the train. One such builder filed plans for a five-story residential project at 32 New York Avenue, between Herkimer Street and Atlantic Avenue.
