Over the summer, Yosef Streicher purchased the dilapidated, three-story former police station at 4302 Fourth Avenue, in northern Sunset Park, for $6 million. Now, the owner plans to redevelop the castle-like structure into a community center and a café. According to the Brooklyn Daily, preliminary plans also call for a residential building with 10 units to be built behind the old Precinct on the vacant lot at 364 43rd Street. An architect has not yet been selected, but Ben Herzog is among the front-runners who may eventually design the project. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle has renderings of other designs for the proposed redevelopment, which will eventually have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
