38 units to replace 4 in Sunnyside
From Sunnyside Post:
Builders have broken ground on a 9-story residential development in Sunnyside.
The development, located on 43rd Street between 43rd and Skillman Avenues, will consist of 38 rental units and 17 parking spaces. The apartments will all be one or two bedrooms, with prices expected to fetch about $1,600 for a one bedroom and $1,800 for a two bedroom.
The initial plan was for a six story building, but the developer revised his plan. The developer, Hooshang Nemat, said he decided to reduce the size of the building’s footprint and build higher.
At 9 stories, the development will be much taller than other buildings on the street. Most are 6 stories.
