Design firm Z Architecture has revealed new renderings of its six-story mixed-use building currently under construction at 1259 Bedford Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Tower Real Estate Investments with developer Michael Reihanian filed permits earlier this month for the corner property that will eventually comprise 47,445 square feet.
As previously reported by YIMBY, building components will include 31,126 square feet of residential space and 5,176 square feet for unspecified commercial use. With a total of 46 apartments, the average residence should measure approximately 676 square feet. Illustrations from the design team show a simple, light-colored brick façade along Bedford Avenue. The exterior along Herkimer Street, however, incorporates cascading columns of oversized windows that gradually extend into a modest cantilever above street level. Each floor along this edge is visually distinguished by bronze-colored, horizontal beams that protrude from the building’s edge.
The new development will replace a long-vacant religious structure and a small commercial business. An estimated date of completion has not been released.
