While perusing the Department of Buildings site, I noticed a number of applications over the past couple of months to build brand new buildings around the neighborhood. I counted eight buildings of varying sizes, and thought you’d like to see what they are. Their accompanying demolition permits will no doubt be on their way, since only two of the eight start out as vacant lots.

The biggest by far is a 7-story, 93 unit building at 23-11 31st Road for Brooklyn-based Catholic Charities’ Caring Communities Associates HDFC, which will provide affordable senior housing. It’s currently a parking lot.

The Residential portion will be huge: 74,454 square feet, with an accompanying community facility at 8,948 square feet. There will be no parking on the premises, which seems kind of nuts for such a large facility.

Their plan exam is “in process” due to “Drawings Incomplete.” No doubt it will be built.

Too Much

Have you guys seen the Broadway train stop at 6:30/7pm?? Where are we going to place so many people??


This is so sad. Talk about destroying the neighbourhood’s history / historic buildings.


Totally different zoning there too. You think it has to do with where a certain “cough” family lives?
