Construction has topped out on two six-story, 16-unit residential buildings at 755-765 Bedford Avenue, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant. Progress on the construction can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user Waymon_Womano. Each of the buildings measure 34,141 square feet, although the amount of residential space isn’t given. It’s very likely the average unit will measure over 1,000 square feet, which means apartments with family-sized configurations are probably in the works. Amenities in each building will include a nine-car parking garage in the cellar, recreational spaces on the ground floor, and a rooftop terrace. Brooklyn-based Goldstone Amber Realty is the developer and Fred W. Torrico’s Maspeth-based architectural firm is the architect of record. At some point, Torrico replaced Karl Fischer, who initially filed plans with the Buildings Department, as the architect. Completion can probably be expected closer to 2017.
Bed-Stuy is experiencing a real estate boom, but renewal has been slow to arrive on the eastern edges of the neighborhood, where aging row houses sit next to squat warehouses and vacant lots. Friday’s crop of filings brought plans for a four-story, mixed-use building at 1905 Fulton Street, between Ralph and Howard Avenues.
Another day, another new building in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Yesterday, new building applications were filed for a seven-story, mixed-use development at 610 Myrtle Avenue, between Taaffe Place and Kent Avenue, in the northern part of the neighborhood.
Property owner Adam Frampton has filed applications for a three-story, single-family townhouse at 172 Putnam Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant. It will measure 2,815 square feet and will host 2,032 square feet of living space across. There will be additional recreational space in the cellar. Adam Frampton’s Midtown South-based Only If Architecture is the architect of record. The 13-foot-wide, 1,333-square-foot property is currently vacant. The Franklin Avenue-Fulton Street stop on the C and Franklin Avenue Shuttle trains is located three blocks south.
In March of last year, Cornell Realty filed plans for a 10-story apartment building at 924 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Bed-Stuy, across the street from New York City Housing Authority’s Tompkins Houses. Now, a new developer appears to be in charge, and applications have been filed for a much smaller project.
