19 Residential Units Under Construction At 668-672 Halsey Street, Bedford-Stuyvesant

Late last year, a four-story, eight-unit residential building topped-out at 672 Halsey Street, in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant, and now, Brownstoner reports the façade as wrapped up. To the right at 670 Halsey Street, a four-story, seven-unit building has also recently topped out. Black Pearl Holding LLC is developing those two properties. Adjacent to No. 670, construction has not yet begun on Tomer Erlich’s planned four-story, four-unit building at 668 Halsey Street. Jamaica-based Banji Awosika Architect is the architect of record for all three developments.
