Permits Filed for 375 Stuyvesant Avenue, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn

Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy doesn’t always see the best executions of infill development, but new filings for 375 Stuyvesant Avenue will hopefully provide an example for others to follow. DXA Studio applied for the permits, indicating the new building should be both innovative and attractive, and Oren Evenhar of Pinestone Greene LLC is listed as the developer. The structure will rise five floors and have 7,386 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst seven units. With a design-minded architect and an average unit size of over 1,000 square feet, condominiums would appear likely. An existing building on the site is landmarked, though there appears to be ample room to accommodate the new structure, which has yet to be reviewed by the LPC.

    I hope that the integrity of this historic landmark, known to those in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community as the Mansion, will be upheld by LPC. Too often developers capitalize on an investment opportunity, not considering the impact on vested residents who do not wish for a luxury multiple dwelling as neighbors.

  3. Need more info on this one. The existing landmarked building is a wonderful mansion that could use a little TLC. There’s space behind it where a garage/cafe used to be, i wonder if that is they space to be developed? otherwise it is going between two historic buildings.

  4. Did the developer buy this building and if yes for how much?

  5. This is definitely not necessary nor is it desirable. These odd new structures in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community alter the visual and cultural integrity of the neighborhood. This kind of proposal only allow people who would who want to change the ethnic composition of the neighborhood to change property values and make it unaffordable for families that have lived here for over 100 years to be eventually pushed out. My family owns property just a few doors away from this site and we love the population density and the cultural composition as it has been for over a century. Although our community may have many needs these changes do not address any of those concerns. I ask why does anyone think that African Americans shouldn’t have a decent place to live in this country? There are many other communities that need this kind of improvement, truly Stuyvesant Heights is not one of them. The beauty of our neighborhood has been maintained for over a century and we can still keep doing that if we are paid decent wages and allowed to grow in our career choices to achieve the economic freedom to maintain and improve our communities just like every other ethnic group in America. The beauty of the living in Brooklyn is to experience the ethnic diversity of different neighborhoods. It is special and attractive part of being a New Yorker. There’s no reason to destroy that asset. And I ask those who are seeking to do so, Why? Is it is greed and power? Why trample on the spirit of what makes us a great city to live in? For those who have these intentions and made this request,I ask that you let these concerns guide your conscious and foster a desire for the progress of our humanity show in the results of your actions.

  6. All I have to say is well said by S. Curry. My husband and his family has lived her over 60 years. I myself have lived her 17 years. This is not good
