Two years ago, the Landmarks Preservation Commission floated the idea of clearing its backlog of items from before 2010 by simply de-calendaring all of them. That was not well-received, to put it lightly. So, they devised a series of steps to actually address those 95 items. That process nearly came to an end today, with the designation of 10 new city landmarks.
A Florida-based property owner has filed applications for a two-story, four-unit mixed-use building at 339 Victory Boulevard, located on the corner of Cebra Avenue in Tompkinsville, on Staten Island’s North Shore. The project will measure 8,650 square feet. The ground floor will contain 2,793 square feet of commercial-retail space, followed by four residential units on the second floor. The apartments should average 733 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Willy C. Yuin’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 6,217-square-foot corner lot is occupied by a small commercial building. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Staten Island-based developer Jayden Estates has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 165-171 Pleasant Plains Avenue, in Pleasant Plains. That’s along Staten Island’s South Shore. The structures will measure 4,637 square feet each and, across both, the residential units should average a family-sized 1,738 square feet apiece. Each house will feature a built-in, single-car garage. Peter J. Calvanico’s Staten Island-based Calvanico Associates is the architect of record. The 11,614-square-foot property is occupied by a two-story, single-family house. Demolition permits were filed in May.
A Staten Island-based property owner has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 448 Clove Road, in Port Richmond, on Staten Island’s North Shore. The project will measure 2,749 square feet. There will be a 916 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by a single residential unit on each of the floors above. The apartments should average 917 square feet apiece. Staten Island-based Ryan & Vaccaro is the architect of record. The 32-foot-wide, 3,575-square-foot property is vacant.
Bradley Associates of Staten Island Inc. has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 16-18 Oakley Place, in New Dorp, on Staten Island’s East Shore. The houses will each measure 4,742 square feet and 3,759 square feet, respectively. Across both, the residential units should average 1,498 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. Joseph M. Morace’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 10,000-square-foot site’s two-story predecessor was demolished earlier this month. The New Dorp stop on the Staten Island Railway is six blocks away.
