An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 226 Hart Street, in northern Bedford-Stuyvesant. The project will measure 5,900 square feet, which means its residential units should average 737.5 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the architect of record. The 27-foot-wide, 2,700-square-foot lot is currently vacant.

The apartments should average 1,248 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 2,264-square-foot property is currently vacant. The Franklin Avenue-Fulton Street stop on the A and C trains and Franklin Avenue Shuttle is around the corner.

New building applications, initially submitted to the Buildings Department in 2012, have been updated for a six-story, 30-unit mixed-use building at 912 Broadway, located at the corner of Stockton Street in northern Bedford-Stuyvesant. The project will rise 92 feet in height and encompass 108,577 square feet. There will be 54,558 square feet of commercial-retail space across the cellar, ground, and second floors. The residential units, averaging 947 square feet apiece, will be located on the fourth through sixth floors. Amenities include storage for 15 bikes and multiple indoor and outdoor “recreational areas” on the fourth floor. No parking is included. Lawrence H. Pinner’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based Pinner Architecture is the architect of record. The 21,125-square-foot development site is vacant. The Myrtle Avenue stop on the J, M, and Z trains is a stone’s throw away.
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.
