HIGHLAND PARK — A developer is planning to build as many as 20 homes on Avenue 56 near York Boulevard under the city’s small-lot development ordinance.
A company called 1118 AVENUE 56, LLC has filed an application with the Planning Department that seeks permission to build the new homes at 1118 Avenue 56, which is currently occupied by some bungalows that date back to 1908, according to online city records.
The small-lot ordinance permits the construction of single-family homes on lots as small as 600 square feet. Supporters say the developments have provided much needed housing but opponents have criticized the projects for being too large and out of character with existing neighborhoods.
