Another day, another new development in Astoria. Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 23-43 31st Road. The project is being developed by D10 Group Inc, based in Jericho, New York. The company has already finished numerous projects in Astoria and anticipates completing three more by 2018. The 50-foot-high structure will bring 18,283 square footage of residential space, to be divided amongst 25 units, and there will also be a gym and space for rooftop recreation. The lot is five blocks away from the N & W subway lines, over on Broadway, and the architect responsible for the design will be the Queens-based firm, Tan Architect PC. Demolition permits for the old occupant were filed in June.
A furniture warehouse in the Bronx is about to be replaced by three new five-story apartment buildings. Permits have been filed for 578 and 580 East 138th Street with identical specifications, and the site’s developer has told YIMBY that another building is also in the works at 582 East 138th Street. Shalev Shoshani of 138 S&H Realty Corp is developing the project, which will bring 24 apartments to Mott Haven. All three structures will stand 56 feet tall, with a total combined area of 22,500 square feet. That space is divided between 6,300 square feet of commercial retail on the first floor, and 16,400 square feet of residential space on floors two through five. OMF Architect PC is responsible for the design, and demolition permits were filed at the end of August.
The number of parking lots remaining in Midtown West continues to dwindle, and now, applications have been filed for 350 West 45th Street, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, where yet another is about to bite the dust for a new development. Applications filed with the DOB show that the replacement seven-story structure will have a residential area measuring 20,600 square feet, which will be divided amongst 31 apartments, for an average size of a bit over 650 square feet each. That means rentals are exceedingly likely. Daniel Bernstein of Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is the architect of record, and David Schwartz, of 344 West 45th Street Corp., is listed as the developer.
The first new building applications have been filed for a site currently occupied by a warehouse at 280 Bond Street, in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The developer is “Gowanus by Design”, a non-profit company whose mission is to construct sustainable developments to quell concerns in the neighborhood about contamination from the Gowanus Canal. The four-story and 50-foot-tall structure will total 33,713 square feet of residential space, and contain fourteen units, likely condominiums, which will average over 2,400 square feet apiece. There will be ten duplexes, with four between the first floor and mezzanine, and six between the second and third floors. Plans include parking spaces for 21 cars, as well as room for 13 bikes and storage for four of the residential units in the cellar space. Atelier New York is responsible for the design, and demolition permits for the warehouse were pulled back in March.
Initial building applications were filed back in the spring for 148-31 90th Avenue, in Jamaica, Queens, and now, slightly revised permits have been pulled with the DOB, this time using the address 148-29 90th Avenue. The total construction area will measure just over 100,000 square feet, and within that, there will be 69,789 square feet of residential space, divided amongst 90 units. There will also be a 45-car parking garage in the cellar, which will also include room for 45 bicycles. Raymond Chan Architects is the architect of record, while George Xu’s 90 Ave Realty LLC is listed as the developer. Demolition permits for the existing structure have already been filed, and construction should soon begin.
