All over Bed-Stuy, little row houses are giving way to apartment buildings. The latest example comes to us from the neighborhood’s western borderlands with Clinton Hill, at 169 Lexington Avenue.
Staten Island-based Javco Group Construction has filed applications for twin two-story, two-family residential buildings at 5304-5308 Amboy Road, in Huguenot, along Staten Island’s South Shore. The buildings will each measure 3,812 square feet and, across both, their full-floor residential units should average 1,178 square feet apiece. That means family-sized apartments are likely in the works. Each structure will also come with a 200-square-foot, single-car garage. James V. Morri’s Staten Island-based JVM Architect is the architect of record. The 75-foot-wide, 9,375-square-foot property was occupied by a two-story house until that structure was demolished over the summer.
A schematic diagram has been revealed of the 20-story, 112-unit mixed-use project planned at 91 Leonard Street, a.k.a. 351-355 Broadway, in TriBeCa. YIMBY initially reported on building applications nearly a year ago. Now YIMBY can report that foundation work is underway, as well, as seen in a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums.
Jersey City-based Myneni & Sons has proposed a five-story, 60-unit mixed-use building at the vacant, wedge-shaped property at 678-690 Grand Street, located between Westervelt and Ivy places in Jersey City’s Bergen-Lafayette section. The project would include ground-floor commercial-retail space.
In addition to projects at 480 Tenth Avenue and 500 West 52nd Street, the Clinton Housing Development Company (CHDC) is planning to build a 13-story, 110-unit mixed-use building at 552 West 52nd Street, in Hell’s Kitchen. The project will contain 110 affordable residential units geared towards artists.
