Three Three-Story, Two-Unit Residential Buildings Coming To 696 East 38th Street, East Flatbush

Queens-based property owner Yaniv Levy has filed applications for three three-story, two-unit residential buildings at 692-696 East 38th Street, on the southern end of East Flatbush, located eight blocks east of the Newkirk Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The structures will all measure 3,661 square feet each, with 2,771 square feet to be used for residential space in each structure. That means units will average a family-sized 1,385 square feet across the entire development. The project is relatively contextual and will rise on a 77-foot-wide vacant swath of land flanked by rowhouses on both sides. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record.

Permits Filed For Four-Story, Eight-Unit Residential Building At 2825 Snyder Avenue, East Flatbush

Brooklyn-based Velocity Framers has filed permits to built a new four-story, eight-unit residential building at 2825 Snyder Avenue in the borough’s East Flatbush neighborhood. It’s about a block from the Church Av 2/5 stop. The filing is for a 45-foot-tall building, which would make the four-story number work. However, the filing only lists 2,595 square feet of residential space out of a total of 5,667 square feet. The latter number being more likely, it would mean average units of about 708 square feet. The Schedule A lists two units per floor. Velocity Framers is also the applicant of record. An existing two-story house will have to be demolished.

Located right across from the Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, the expanded building will measure 4,792 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 600 square feet each. Bakhtiar Shamloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Group Design is the applicant of record.
