Brooklyn-based Jankos Group has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential building at 225-227 Winthrop Street, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. The buildings will measure 7,257 square feet and 7,978 square feet, respectively. Across both, its residential units should average 735 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Arnold S. Montag’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based AM/PM Design & Consulting is the architect of record. The 49-foot-wide, 5,173-square-foot property is occupied by a two-and-a-half-story house and will be subdivided into two separate lots. Demolition permits were filed for the existing structure in August.
The nine-story Dutch LIC at 25-19 43rd Avenue has been topped out within the past month and is starting to receive exterior cladding, as red brick climbs along its eastern façade. Even in its unfinished state, the 86-unit residential project leaves a distinctive mark in Long Island City’s booming Court Square district. The design by GF55 Partners appears conventional from many angles. The building is notable for its sharp-angled south corner, anchored by a heavy steel truss at the base. Both of the striking features were conceived as responses to a challenging site. The project is built by Ekstein Development, with EFT Skyline Construction LLC serving as the general contractor.
Last month, a pair of single-family conversions in the West Village came before the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The commission approved the first with relative ease, but asked the second proposal to return for another hearing last Tuesday, when it received a seal of approval.
The South Bronx was once known for burned-out buildings and entrenched poverty, but it’s now becoming a hub for new construction of both affordable and market-rate housing. A project that appears to be market-rate is headed to Longwood, a neighborhood in the southeastern Bronx.
Construction has topped out on the five-story, eight-unit mixed-use project under development at 300 Washington Street, located on the corner of Third Street in Hoboken, New Jersey. The new building will have retail space on the ground floor and residential units on the upper four floors, although it’s not known if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. Hoboken-based Minervini Vandermark Architecture is behind the design, Jersey Digs reported. Completion can probably be expected in 2017. The project is six blocks from Hoboken Terminal.
