Too many renderings come through that resemble the same mold of international style. Today, Citiscape Consulting has revealed an unusual design for a long-term care facility at 1508 Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The post-war Japanese Metabolism movement, a style that integrated organic material and architecture, was what inspired the 16-story building’s distinctive look.
Permits have been filed for a five-story private school at 3801 Fort Hamilton Parkway in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The site is by the southern corner of the Greenwood Cemetery grounds.

Yehuda Deutsch is listed as behind the applications.

Yaniv Levy is behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a three-story mixed-use building at 28 Sylvaton Terrace in Rosebank, Staten Island.

Wulei Tang is responsible for the development.
