Back in 2014, a row of five four-story, four-unit residential buildings were built from 1038-1052 42nd Street, in northern Borough Park, and now five more buildings have been granted permits on the same block. Adjacent to the completed buildings, there will be three four-story, four-unit residential structures at 1054-1058 42nd Street. The residential square footage of each building varies, but will total between 5,500 and 6,000 square feet. Closer to Fort Hamilton Parkway, two seven-story mixed-use buildings are planned at 1060-1066 42nd Street. Both structures will have retail and community facility space, but one will contain nine residential units and the other will have 10 units.
In summary, 31 residential units will spread across 45,756 square feet of space, which means units will average a family-sized 1,476 square feet apiece. Ground-floor retail space will total 9,484 square feet. The second-story community facilities will total 7,673 square feet and a religious organization will operate within the space. Shimon Jacobowitz is the developer and Hudson Valley-based Kenneth Thomas is the architect of record. The site is two blocks from the D train, and demolition permits were filed earlier this month to raze the White Castle restaurant.
