A non-profit that develops affordable homes is expanding its Bed-Stuy office building into a seven-story rental building. Neighborhood Housing Services of Bedford-Stuyvesant sent along plans to add five stories of affordable apartments to the two-story structure at 1012 Gates Avenue, close to Broadway and the border with Bushwick.
In March, Bushwick-based developer Level One Holdings filed applications for a seven-story apartment building at 740 Dekalb Avenue between Marcy and Tompkins Avenues, in the heart of Bed-Stuy. The development got its new building permits last month, and YIMBY has the first look at what will rise on the empty lot.
YIMBY caught this rendering on the fence at 875 Dekalb Avenue in northeastern Bed Stuy, where South Williamsburg-developer Simon Kaufman is working on a six-story apartment building.
As development in Brooklyn pushes further east, apartment buildings are slowly filling the sleepy triangular piece of Bed Stuy known as Ocean Hill, near Broadway Junction in East New York. A tipster has sent YIMBY a rendering for one such development, a 32-unit building at 1325 Herkimer Street.
Brownstoner noticed concrete is up two stories at 168-180 Franklin Avenue, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, where Adam America and the Horizon Group are constructing a five-story, 118-unit luxury residential building, which was revealed by YIMBY last summer. Issac & Stern Architects is designing, and completion is expected in the spring of 2016.
