Permits have been filed for a new 30-story residential building at 1625 Shore Parkway, in the South Brooklyn neighborhood of Bensonhurst. The site is between Belt Parkway and Cropsey Avenue, and about three blocks away from Bensonhurst Park. The closest subway station, Bay Parkway, sits three avenues away and is serviced by the D train. The historically Italian neighborhood has a fabric more akin to suburban sprawl, featuring many big-box shopping options. The new structure will be located near Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center, a commercial strip with stores including BJ’s Wholesale, Best Buy, and Modell’s Sporting Goods.
Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 6915 15th Avenue, in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the 71st Street Subway Station, serviced by the D train. TLK Group will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 7508 Bay Parkway in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Two subway stations are about a dozen blocks away from the site. The Bay Parkway Station is serviced by the D train, and Kings Highway Station is serviced by the N, Q, and W trains.
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.
Lower East Side-based Andy Mak has been granted permits to build a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1415 67th Street, in northern Bensonhurst, located roughly five blocks from subway stops on either the D or N trains. The building will measure a total of 7,405 square feet, which works out to units averaging a family-sized 925 square feet apiece. Wu Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record. The site consists of three tax lots, and a two-story townhouse and an adjacent structure must be demolished. Initially, applications filed back in 2014 called for a smaller building with nine units, but that was never approved.
