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.
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.
