Long Island-based Hersel Sakhaee has filed applications for a five-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 1031 Broadway, in northern Bushwick, located three blocks down from the Myrtle Avenue stop on the J/M/Z trains. The project will measure 6,750 square feet in total and includes a 1,687 square-foot ground-floor retail portion. The residential units will begin on the second floor and average 844 square feet apiece. Hudson Valley-based Kenneth Thomas is the applicant of record.
In the first half of 2015, YIMBY reported on filings for a nine-story, mixed-use commercial building at 61 9th Avenue, on the corner of West 15th Street in Chelsea, and now Crain’s has the first rendering of the project. The entire structure will measure 153,754 square feet in total, and there will be 115,000 and 37,000 square feet of boutique office and retail space, respectively. Retail will be located on the cellar through the second floor. Rafael Viñoly is behind the design, and Vornado Realty Trust and Aurora Capital are developing. Demolition permits were filed in December to remove the existing lumber shop and billboard sign. Groundbreaking is expected in mid-2016, with completion scheduled for early 2018.
Benjamin Companies and the Beechwood Organization have filed applications for a seven-story, 126-unit mixed-use building at 190 Beach 69th Street, in Arverne, Queens, located just south of the Beach 67th Street stop on the A train. The building is part of Arverne by the Sea’s multi-family phase dubbed “The Tides.” It’s the mega-project’s final phase, and roughly 2,300 townhouses have already built on the surrounding oceanfront, according to The Real Deal. This building will measure 151,760 square feet in total, and the residential space will amount to 105,442 square feet, which means units will average 837 square feet apiece. Commercial-retail space and car parking will be located in a ground-floor podium. Urbahn Architects is the applicant of record and developers expect to break ground within the coming months.

Flushing-based Li Architect Associate is the architect of record and demolition permits were filed last month to remove the dilapidated two-story structure. A similarly-sized building is planned on the adjacent lot at 65-27 Roosevelt Avenue.
