Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 253 Mother Gaston Boulevard, in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Atlantic Avenue subway station, serviced by the L trains; the East New York train station is also nearby, serviced by the LIRR. Joseph Lax is behind the applications.
The 73-foot tall structure will yield 11,865 square feet for residential use. 16 apartments will be created, averaging 742 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Tenants will have a lobby and storage space for ten bicycles. One unit will extend into a penthouse floor, making a duplex.
Jose Lockhart will be responsible for the design
The lot is vacant, meaning construction can begin soon after the permits are approved. The expected completion date has not been announced.
