Shlomo Sinay, head of Borough Park-based Candor Capital, has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 568 Lafayette Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, half a block from the G train’s stop at Nostrand Avenue. The building will measure 6,661 square feet in total, and units will average a rental-sized 666 square feet; two units on the fourth floor will also share a fifth floor penthouse. Boaz Golani’s Bronx-based BMG Design Build is the architect of record, and an existing four-story, three-unit townhouse must first be demolished.
Earlier this year, the two-story hardware store at 420 Tompkins Avenue, in southwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, was demolished to make way for a six-story, 44-unit residential building, and now the steel-framed structure is a story above street level, per Brownstoner. Charles Mallea is designing, and the building will measure 29,908 square feet, featuring rental-sized units averaging 680 square feet. Bed-Stuy-based CS Management is developing, and completion is expected in the spring of 2016.
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.
Most of Bed-Stuy’s vinyl-clad 19th century wood frames aren’t long for this world, and soon, two more will meet the wrecking ball. Today, new building applications were filed for a small residential development at 299 Van Buren Street in Bed-Stuy, between Lafayette and Stuyvesant Avenues.
In April 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a six-story, 57-unit residential building at 75 Ralph Avenue, in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant, and then we revealed renderings of the project the following April. Today, the the 38,240 square-foot structure is topped out, and façade installation appears imminent, per Brownstoner. Charles Mallea is designing, and the project is located three blocks from the Gates Avenue stop on the J/Z trains. Velocity Framers USA is developing, and completion is likely by 2016.
