Boaz Gilad’s Brookland Capital has filed applications for a five-story, 38-unit residential building at 652 Madison Street, in central Bedford-Stuyvesant, located 10 blocks north of the Utica Avenue stop on the A and C trains. The 26,000 square-foot structure will boast units averaging 684 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Feingold & Gregory Architects is designing. The 130-foot-wide development site is comprised of three tax lots, two of which are currently occupied by two-story, single-family houses. The third is vacant.
New York City has a new historic district. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission, in a unanimous vote, designated the Bedford Historic District in Brooklyn. That means 824 more buildings now fall under the commission’s oversight. It also means the green street signs will eventually be replaced with brown ones.
Omri Bar-Mashiah, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 714 Jefferson Avenue, in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant, located eight blocks north of the Utica Avenue A/C stop. The project will measure 4,872 square feet, which means units will average 974 square feet apiece. The unit on the fourth floor will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse, and Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record. The existing three-story townhouse was recently filed for demolition.
A non-profit that develops affordable homes is expanding its Bed-Stuy office building into a seven-story rental building. Neighborhood Housing Services of Bedford-Stuyvesant sent along plans to add five stories of affordable apartments to the two-story structure at 1012 Gates Avenue, close to Broadway and the border with Bushwick.
Back in 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a seven-story, 24-unit residential building at 1044 Bedford Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, and renderings surfaced of the project earlier this year. But this past October, Prime Rok Real Estate acquired the site for $5.26 million, according to DNAinfo, and their in-house team has made slight design changes. The latest plans retain what was previously approved – that the majority of rental units will have one- and two-bedroom configurations. Construction is expected to begin later this month and should be finished by 2017.
