Aleksander Karasik, of Karasik Law Group, has filed applications to build a two-story, three-unit residential building on the vacant lots at 2998-3002 Gerritsen Avenue, in the largely single-family neighborhood of Gerritsen Beach. The building will measure 3,230 square feet in total, which means units should average 1,075 square feet. Hansa Building Engineering is the applicant of record, and the site’s former two-story home was demolished in 2010.
Apartment buildings have sprouted on nearly every piece of available property near the Metropolitan Avenue L stop in Williamsburg, but one developer has decided to expand and convert a warehouse at 82 Ainslie Street instead of tearing it down.
YIMBY previously posted renderings of a tentative redesign and redevelopment set for the Macy’s store in Downtown Brooklyn, and now we have another submission from the project’s competition, though evidently this creation was not selected. The design comes from Leeser Architecture and would have featured two residential towers in addition to new and revamped retail space.
Brooklyn Heights Cinema has gotten the final nail in its coffin. The existing nearly double height single-story structure at 70 Henry Street, which dates back to 1896, will be subsumed by a five-story building designed by Morris Adjmi, thanks to approval by the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday.
Lazer Waldman, doing business under an LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 985 Willoughby Avenue, just north of the Central Avenue subway stop in northern Bushwick. The building will measure 6,725 square feet, which puts the average unit at roughly 840 square feet. Charles Mallea’s M Architecture is designing, and demo permits were recently filed for the existing two-story, two-unit townhouse.
