Construction has kicked off on a six-story residential building at 245 Franklin Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The structure will replace a single-story laundry business and will eventually top out at 65 feet tall. Designed by Charles Mallea, the building’s façade is comprised of red brick masonry with a black composite material at the roof level. The edge of the exterior along Franklin Avenue will feature large industrial-style windows and a series of private balconies.

The residential component will comprise a total of 11,441 feet divided among 16 rental units, with layouts ranging from studios to two-bedroom homes. Amenities include a roof terrace, on-site laundry facilities, a rear yard, and possibly more to be announced.

Victor Battaglia, a New Jersey-based developer, is responsible for the property under an entity referred to as The Franklin Mint. No comments have been released regarding when the project will be complete.
