Reveal for Four-Story, 10-Unit Residential Building Planned at 568 Lafayette Avenue, Bedford-Stuyvesant

A rendering has surfaced of the planned four-story, 10-unit residential building at 568 Lafayette Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant. The latest building permits — which YIMBY first reported on in August of 2015 — indicate the project will measure 8,542 square feet. The residential units should average 655 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Two units will occupy each of the ground and second floors, followed by three units on the third floor, and three units across the fourth and penthouse levels. Amenities include laundry facilities, bike storage, and a 300-square-foot rear yard. Borough Park-based Candor Capital is the developer and Boaz Golani’s Bronx-based Beam Group is behind the architecture. A four-story townhouse must first be demolished. The Bedford-Nostrand Avenues stop on the G train is a few steps away.
