New building applications have been filed for a substantial addition to Temple Beth Elementary School, at 445 Beach 135th Street in Belle Harbor, Queens. There will be 27,606 square feet of space spread over three floors, and the permits indicate that this will hold 11 classrooms and support spaces. Andrew Berger of Di Domenico + Partners LLP is the architect of record, and the New York City School Construction Authority is listed as the developer.
Charles McInnis, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, two-family residential buildings at 176-180 Beach 127th Street, in Belle Harbor, located on Queens’s Rockaway Peninsula. Both buildings will measure 3,000 square feet apiece, and in each structure, there will be one apartment on the ground floor and a second unit across the second and third floors. If the residential space is divvied up as such, there should be two 1,000-square-foot and two 2,000-square-foot units. Norman C. Lok’s Middle Village-based architecture firm is the applicant of record. Back in November, the site’s former dilapidated and Hurricane Sandy-ravaged two-and-a-half-story house was demolished.
