Property owner David Shavolian, doing business as an anonymous Great Neck, N.Y.-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 188 Cooper Street, in eastern Bushwick. It will measure 8,867 square feet and its residential units should average 682 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits were filed in March. The Wilson Avenue stop on the L train is located two blocks away.

Woodhaven-based Joe Mashieh has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 437 Cleveland Street, in northern East New York, located four blocks from the Shepherd Avenue stop on the C train. The structure will measure 3,942 square feet. Each floor will host a single apartment, and the units should average a family-sized 986 square feet apiece. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the applicant of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,458-square-foot lot is currently vacant. The site benefits from the East New York Rezoning that was approved last month, and now sits within an R5B district. The site can accommodate up to 3,318 square feet of residential space, which means 361 square feet of air rights will remain if the latest plans move forward.
