A cute yellow home on 83rd Street may soon become condos, according to new Department of Buildings filings first reported by YIMBY.

The home’s owner Michael Calabrese — who lives in Staten Island — has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at the 2159 83rd Street site.

YIMBY has more details:

The project will measure 10,080 square feet and its residential units should average 1,249 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be six off-street parking spaces. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. The 60-foot-wide, 6,000-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story, multi-family house. Demolition permits were approved in July.

The original is is actually quite charming, according to old photos, available on Property Shark, if not for that giant un-groomed tree that is now obstructing it.

This application joins a slew of others that for modest Bensonhurst properties that are on track to be replaced by larger buildings containing condos, apartments, commercial and community spaces.

    Good. That house is a waste of space.

    I knew the family that lived there in the 70’s. The dad had every issue of The Amazing Spider-man.
