Jacob Movtady, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for an eight-story, 18-unit residential building at 263 Franklin Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, located two blocks from the Bedford – Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. The entire project will measure 16,493 square feet and 11,284 square feet of that will be residential space. That means units will average a rental-sized 627 square feet apiece. The residential lobby and recreational space will be located on the ground floor and retail space will occupy the cellar. Floral Park-based Sion Consulting Engineering is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide lot is currently vacant.
Park Avenue in Brooklyn begins underneath the elevated, dark Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Clinton Hill and runs east into Bed-Stuy, where it transitions into an odd mix of warehouses, little brick apartment buildings, and aging 19th century wood frame houses. Much of the avenue was originally developed for workers at the Navy Yard, which sits a block away, but Orthodox Jews have settled the area over the last few decades. And now, even the once-desolate industrial blocks just east of the highway are becoming populated with new residential buildings. Yesterday, applications were filed for a five-story building there at 446 Park Avenue, between Kent and Franklin Avenues.
Last week, YIMBY wrote about a pair of apartment buildings planned in Ridgewood, which will be Brookland Capital’s fist project in Queens. Now we have a rendering for their condo development at 443 Bainbridge Street in Bed-Stuy, a few blocks from the developer’s offices on Malcolm X Boulevard.

Robert Lin’s Flushing-based A&T Engineering is the applicant of record. Permits were filed in December to demolish an existing single-story warehouse.
Taneshwar Sukhdeo, doing business as an Ozone Park-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential development at 508A Lexington Avenue, in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant.
