Staten Island-based Over Development LTD has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential project at 1150 Dumont Avenue, located on the corner of Milford Street in central East New York.

That means the apartments will probably boast family-sized configurations. There will be off-street parking for two cars. Stanley M. Krebushevski’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 3,675 square-foot property is currently vacant. The site is located 10 blocks from the New Lots Avenue stop on the 3 train.
