STAPLETON — Developers plan to demolish a 19th century Stapleton home and build a new 44-unit apartment building, according to permits.
Architect Juan Defonseca has filed permits to build the 43,727-square-foot, mixed-used development in place of a wood frame house at 84 Prospect St., New York YIMBY first reported.
The five-story development would also have 4,259 square feet of commercial space and enclosed parking with 33 spaces, according to the permit.
Defonseca and the owner's representative in the permit, Ahron Kirzner, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The project is one of several new apartment buildings heading to St. George and Stapleton and is two blocks away from the recently opened Urby Staten Island, which has rents starting at $1,735 for a studio and $3,310 for two-bedrooms.
