Developers have their eyes on a cluster of small homes on 38th Street, between 31st and 30th Avenues.
Plans were filed with the Department of Buildings last week for the demolition of three houses, two of which are next-door neighbors.
All plans were filed by George Elliot of Ellco Development Corp. Calls to Elliot went to voicemail at Bell Realty in Great Neck.
One of the homes, located at 30-70 38th Street, is a one-story house with an attic, which might look just as comfortable on a tree-lined suburban street as it does on 38th.
In 2012, the DOB issued a permit for the construction of a 5-story, 10-unit residence on this property, which was filed by Eric Belanich, also of Bell Realty.
Its neighbor, 30-66 38th Street, is a two-and-a-half-story frame house, according to property documents. It has a first story bay window and a garage that developers also intend to demolish.
Across the street, 30-49 38th Street is a two-story house with split coloring: yellow on the first story façade, and brown on the second.
A stop work order exists on this property, according to the DOB.
