Two developers want to build a four-story, 46-unit residential building at Brookley Road and Steadman Street behind the Arborway bus yard - and across the street from a 21-unit apartment building that won BPDA and zoning-board approval earlier this year.
The $14.2-million building at 35 Brookley Rd. would replace what developers Matthew Zahler and Jeffrey Glew call the "rather tired" offices, warehouse and parking lot of Northeast Petroleum Service and Supply, which sells equipment for commercial and industrial liquid handling, from gas and water pumps to fuel and water tanks.
Their proposal calls for 3 artist live/work units, 8 studio units, 9 with one bedroom each and 26 with two bedrooms. Ten of the units would be rented or sold as affordable. The proposal does not specify if the units would be rentals or condos.
The "transit oriented" building - located a short walk from the Forest Hills train and bus station - would have 21 parking spaces.
In addition to the recently approved Steadman Street building, Washington Street across from the bus yard has been filling up with new condos and apartments.
