Permits have been approved for two attached three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 2054 85th Street, in southern Bensonhurst. Each will measure 3,782 square feet and have full-floor residential units that should average 1,239 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be a total of six off-street parking spaces. An anonymous Bayside-based LLC is listed as the property owner and Steven Schneider’s New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the architect of record. The 6,000-square-foot property was previously occupied by two two-and-a-half-story houses until they were demolished in March of 2015. The 20th Avenue stop on the D train is around the corner.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a two-story, 21,000-square-foot commercial building at 2433 Knapp Street, located along the Plumb Beach Channel in far-eastern Sheepshead Bay. The structure will house a boat sales business with interior space to showcase eight vessels. The facility will also have off-street parking for 54 cars. Not specified is whether the project will include a dock, but since it’s located along the water, one would hardly be surprising. Steven Schneider’s New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the architect of record. The 78,000-square-foot property, of which 25,000-square feet is developable, is vacant. In 2014, the site was on the market for $2.3 million. The latest owner acquired it in 2015 for $1.5 million.
Elizabeth McDonald, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 1776 74th Street, in Bensonhurst, located five blocks from the 79th Street stop on the D train. The structure will measure 10,000 square feet and its residential units should average a spacious 1,080 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The project will feature four parkings spaces, two of which will be located on the ground floor. Steven Schneider’s New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed in February for the 40-foot-wide site’s existing two-and-a-half-story house.
Back in September of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 67-unit apartment-hotel at 138-142 Bowery, in Little Italy. Now, Bowery Boogie has revealed renderings of the project and has reported that demolition of the site’s existing two- and three-story structures has been completed. The new building will encompass 53,088 square feet, and will host 46 hotel rooms and 21 residential units. There will be commercial-retail space on the cellar, ground, and mezzanine levels, so it’s difficult to estimate the size of the hotel rooms. The apartments will span the sixth through eights floors and should average a rental-sized 658 square feet apiece. Emmut Properties is the developer and New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is serving as the applicant of record. Completion is expected in 2017. The developer closed on the development assemblage last October for $47 million.
Elizabeth McDonald, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for three four-story, multi-family residential buildings at 135-139 Sackett Street, in the Columbia Street Waterfront District, located seven blocks from the Carroll Street stop on the F and G trains. Each of the buildings will contain three residential units and will individually measure between 4,178 and 4,196 square feet. It appears each unit will spread across at least an entire floor, although each building also has a penthouse on the fourth floor. The penthouse space will probably be attached to the third-floor unit. Across the entire development, units should average 1,395 square feet apiece, so condos are definitely in the works. New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record.
