Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 1548 72nd Street, in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the 71st Street Subway Station on the corner of Lt. Joseph Petrosino Park, serviced by the D train. The area is mostly residential, with some shops along New Utrecht Avenue. The Brooklyn-based firm New Empire Real Estate Development is behind the applications.
The last time YIMBY checked in on Ceruzzi Properties’ 138 East 50th Street in late August, the residential tower had just climbed past its 40th floor. Now, construction appears to have reached the parapet, 800 feet and 63 floors above the Midtown streets below, as seen in the latest update from Tectonic.
Today YIMBY has the first renderings for 15 Somers Street, a six-story residential building designed by Feingold and Gregory Architects. The depiction shows a façade with warehouse-style windows and light beige brick. An ivy-covered wall protects five parking spaces on the first floor. The traditional style will match the pre-war brick row houses on both sides of the new development.

Astoria-based Anthony Cucich will be responsible for the development and design.
