Brooklyn-based Brookland Capital, headed by Boaz Gilad, has filed applications to expand the three-story parking garage at 524-540 Halsey Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, into a five-story, 36-unit residential building. According to DNAinfo, the developer acquired the property for $8.2 million in December. The 31,434 square-foot property will be expanded into 38,879 square feet of residential space, which means units will average a relatively spacious 1,080 square feet apiece. Per the Schedule A, there will be seven townhouse-style triplex apartments within the first three floors. Upper West Side-based Feingold & Gregory Architects is the architect of record. The project is located within the Bedford Stuyvesant/Expanded Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission must approve it.
