Folks who live near the Franklin Avenue C train stop in southern Bed-Stuy are probably familiar with an oddly shaped vacant lot on the corner of Fulton and Spencer streets. Recently, it’s been full of painted Airstream trailers and vans. Now, it will become apartments.
Brooklyn-based CS Real Estate Group has filed applications for three four-story, six-unit residential buildings at 113-123 Clifton Place, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, located around the block from the Classon Avenue stop on the G train. The development will likely read like townhouses, as each building will actually be split into two 20-foot-wide sections, with three units in each “townhouse.” All of the townhouse sections will have similar configurations, with one unit located on the ground and cellar levels, another unit located on the second floor and part of the third floor, and the final unit hosted on the rest of the third floor and the entire fourth floor. The residential space varies between each building, but an average unit across the whole development should cover 1,027 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Karl Fischer is the architect of record. The 120-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a two-story commercial building and a low-slung warehouse. Permits were field last year to demolish the structures.
Back in April of 2015, the Bed Stuy Blog revealed renderings of the four- and seven-story, 66-unit residential complex being developed at 410 and 420 Lexington Avenue (a.k.a. 281-291 Tomkins Avenue), in Bedford-Stuyvesant, located five blocks from the Bedford-Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. Now, construction is underway on the top floors of each building, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. The four-story building, at the corner of Tompkins Avenue, is technically an expansion of a former two-story warehouse. This component will host 31 residential units averaging 620 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. It will also have storage space for 14 bikes and rooftop terraces. The seven-story component will host 35 residential units and is being built ground-up. It will encompass 30,452 square feet and its units should average 736 square feet apiece. Amenities there will include parking for 17 cars, storage for 15 bikes, a lounge, a 448-square-foot recreational room, and a communal rooftop space. Brooklyn-based The Iconic Group is the developer, while Nataliya Donskoy’s Brooklyn-based ND Architecture & Design is the architect. Completion is expected later this year.
Back in February of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a nine-story, 118-unit residential building at 1875 Atlantic Avenue, in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant, located three blocks from the Ralph Avenue stop on the C train. Renderings of the 79,446-square-foot project have now been revealed by DNAinfo. The residential units should average 673 square feet apiece, which means rental apartments are in the works. Amenities include a 59-car garage on the ground floor, storage for 59 bikes, a laundry, and three separate recreational areas located on the ground, eighth, and nine floors. StudiosC is designing the project, while Brooklyn-based Julien Flander is serving as the applicant of record. Velocity Framers USA Inc. is the developer and completion is expected in early 2017. The site’s former single-story warehouse was demolished in early 2015.
Eyal Ovadia, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 762 Marcy Avenue, in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant, located four blocks from the Bedford-Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. The structure will measure 6,925 square feet and its residential units should average 713 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. There will be two units per floor on the ground through third floors, and a single unit on the fourth. Queens-based Gerald J. Caliendo is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in March to remove the 25-foot-wide site’s two-story townhouse.
