Brooklyn-based United Developers has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 163 MacDougal Street, in Ocean Hill. The project will measure 7,104 square feet and its residential units should average 688 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two unit across each above-grade floor. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot is vacant. Last year, the same developer renovated the three-story townhouse next door, at 165 MacDougal Street, into three apartments.
Construction has topped out and façade installation is underway on the seven-story, 27-unit residential redevelopment underway at 1004 Gates Avenue, in Ocean Hill. The building’s design has also slightly changed, as seen in a rendering courtesy of a tipster. The latest building permits indicate the project measures 28,708 square feet, which means its residential units should average 1,063 square feet apiece. The apartments, rentals, will boast layouts with two- to three-bedroom configurations. The Brooklyn-based Loketch Group is the developer and Williamsburg-based Ellipses Design is behind the design. Occupancy is expected in early 2017.

Out in the borderlands between Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Brownsville, and East New York, there’s a working class, largely black neighborhood called Ocean Hill. A small new development is headed to the area at 2353 Dean Street, between Rockaway Avenue and Eastern Parkway.
