Last week, we brought you the first look at 829 Willoughby Avenue, a small infill project in Bed-Stuy with a spare, yellow-accented façade.
Now, we’ve got a look at another project at the opposite end of Bed-Stuy by the same developer and design architect.
At 1234 Bedford Avenue – in a more desirable corner of Bed-Stuy, near the border with Clinton Hill – Solomon Schwimmer has started work on another small residential project, set to deliver nine new rental apartments to the Brooklyn market next year.
Like 829 Willoughby, the project will technically be an alteration of an existing brownstone – at least it was once a brownstone, before it was stripped of every trace of exterior ornament. The developer has hired StudiosC to design a clean, modern new face for the slightly enlarged structure, choosing this time to go with a small strip of red façade panels as an accent.
The project will raise the building from four stories to five, adding 1,000 square feet of net residential space to the 4,828-square foot existing structure. It will have two two-bedroom apartments on the second through fifth floors, with a three-bedroom with access to the cellar on the ground floor. Charles Mallea is the
architect of record.
The developer closed on the property just a month or so ago, paying $1.35 million.
Completion is targeted for September 2015.
