The new house on the block
The house in the middle of the frame was the house at 48-23 211 St.
There allegedly was a fire here and afterward the owner filed for an alteration permit. (There's no record of a fire on the DOB's website, but the architect claims there was on his site.)
A stop work order was put in effect on January 15 for failure to provide approved plans, but soon rescinded.
Hard to tell, but it looks like the front was extended, in violation of the R2A "Line Up Provision," where the front of the building MUST line up with the houses on either side.
Here's what the finished product will look like:
While I think the house is kind of interesting, it certainly is out-of-context with the rest of the block.
