Abraham Strulovitch had originally filed applications in December, during the building code crunch, for a residential project at 3707 Blackstone Avenue, in the more built-up southern portion of Riverdale. Amendments to the plan now call for an eight-story, 68-unit residential building measuring 40,520 square feet, which will span 3707-3719 Blackstone Avenue and 620 West 238th Street. The average unit will fall just short of 600 square feet, likely indicating rentals, and Shahriar Afshari is designing. The site has been rid of its two-story predecessor, which sat dilapidated until its demise in 2014.
