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.
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.
Esther Y. Krausz, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 228 Spencer Street, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant. The structure will measure 7,514 square feet and its residential units should average 2,287 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. One unit will span the ground and second floors, followed by a single unit on each of the third and fourth floors. Genaro Urueta’s Maspeth-based Studio Gallos is the architect of record. The 35-foot-wide, 3,517-square-foot assemblage consists of two two-story townhouses (one at 228 Spencer Street and the other at 226 1/2 Spencer Street). Demolition permits were filed in May. The site is three blocks from the Bedford-Nostrand Avenues stop on the G train.
