Back in 2014, a row of five four-story, four-unit residential buildings were built from 1038-1052 42nd Street, in northern Borough Park, and now five more buildings have been granted permits on the same block. Adjacent to the completed buildings, there will be three four-story, four-unit residential structures at 1054-1058 42nd Street. The residential square footage of each building varies, but will total between 5,500 and 6,000 square feet. Closer to Fort Hamilton Parkway, two seven-story mixed-use buildings are planned at 1060-1066 42nd Street. Both structures will have retail and community facility space, but one will contain nine residential units and the other will have 10 units.
Shimon Lichtenstein, doing business as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications to build four, three-family residential buildings at 4545 18th Avenue, on the edge of Borough Park.

The site must first be subdivided into four 22-foot-wide tax lots, and an existing single-story auto-shop will have to be demolished. Future residents will be conveniently located around the corner from the 18th Avenue stop on the F train.

Diego Aguilera’s Rego Park-based architecture firm is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were recently filed to take down the existing 2.5-story, two-unit brick house.

The Orthodox community in Borough Park is one of the city’s fastest growing groups, and they’re building plenty of schools to educate their children.
