Property owner Carol Katzburg has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 1225 42nd Street, in northern Borough Park, three blocks from the D train’s stop at Fort Hamilton Parkway. The structure will measure 8,796 square feet in total, and that figure includes 2,297 square feet of community facility space on the ground floor. The full-floor residential units above will average a family-sized 2,166 square feet apiece. Queens-based Grigori Zinkevitch is the architect of record, and an existing 2.5-story house must first be demolished.
A former nursing home campus at 123 Linden Boulevard in Flatbush may grow a 20-story residential building with community facilities. The developer has filed another round of building applications and dramatically scaled up the size of the project, which started out as a seven-story, 57-unit apartment building.
Wang Chun Hua, as Z & W of New York LLC, has filed permits for a new seven-story, 30-unit mixed-use building at 139-20 34th Avenue in Flushing. That’s between Leavitt Street and Union Street, about a 15-minute walk from the 7 train at Main St. The 69-foot-tall project would cover 27,611 square feet with residential square footage of 19,936. That means units averaging about 665 square feet. There would be five units each from the second to the seventh floor. The first floor would have 7,675 square feet of community facility space for a day care for ages two to six. There would also be parking for 20 cars and 15 bicycles. Cheng-Yang Lee is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were issued earlier this year for the two-story house occupying the site.
Yecheskel Weingarten, as Kerem Dwellings LLC, has filed permits to construct a five-story, 50-foot-tall mixed-use building at 1559 51st Street in Brooklyn’s Borough Park neighborhood. That’s between 15th and 16th Avenues. The total square footage would be 17,380 with eight residential units spread across 13,096 square feet. That would mean an average size of 1,637 square feet. There would be two units each on floors two through five. The filing indicates 4,284 square feet of community facility and the Schedule A lists the cellar and first floor as “ambulatory diagnostic.” Architect Eyal Levitt is the applicant of record. An existing two-story home must be demolished, though permits were issued in 2013.
It’s about to get very busy for a corner in the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn. In addition to the seven-story building planned at 500 Livonia Avenue, HPD plans another seven-story building spanning 81,435 square feet at 453 Hinsdale Street. The former will have 90 units while the latter will have 62 units, though the Schedule A seems to indicate 59 units. Those apartments will spread across 69,634 square feet. If the number is indeed 62, that means units will average a spacious 1,123 square feet apiece. A 1,094 square-foot community facility and 10,707 square-foot retail space will be on the ground level, plus storage for 31 bicycles. Like 500 Livonia Avenue, Christine Hunter of Manhattan-based Magnusson Architecture and Planning is the applicant or record.
