Recent permits filed detail a new three-building development on the eastern edge of Borough Park, Brooklyn. The site is comprised of both new and renovated multi-family homes, with house numbers 1663, 1667, and 1669 42nd Street. All three properties will stand 35 feet tall, and are divided into three stories with two residences.

The project will measure 8,541 square feet and its residential units should average 790 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. One of the units on the fourth floor will be a duplex and feature space on an upper penthouse level. There will also be space for five bikes in the cellar. Eyal Levitt’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 3,600-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in August. The site is eight blocks from the Sterling Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains.
