In April of 2014, YIMBY brought you news of A-1 Properties’ planned mixed-use building at 802 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Bedford-Stuyvesant, and now Curbed has the reveal, designed by J. Frankl Associates (with Charles Mallea serving as architect of record). The project’s figures have been revised, and plans now call for a nine-story, 44-unit rental building, which will also include 5,700 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Completion is expected in the second half of 2016.
Queens-based Cornerstone Dvi LLC has filed applications for a five-story, five-unit residential building at 481 Monroe Street, in central Bedford-Stuyvesant. The building will measure 4,885 square feet, which works out to units averaging 977 square feet, and could either be rentals or condos. Woody Chen’s InFocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
A rather sad little three-story storefront with apartments above it has been neglected for years at 1516 Fulton Street, on the corner of Throop Avenue and across the street from the entrance to the C train. But a new owner has taken over the site and plans to expand it to an eight-story apartment building.
Michael Kandhorov, of New York Equity Management, has filed applications for a six-story, six-unit residential building at 511 Herkimer Street, in southern Bedford-Stuyvesant, two blocks east of the Kingston/Throops stop on the C train. The building will measure just short of 6,000 square feet, making for full-floor units averaging nearly 1,000 square feet. Flushing-based Frank Quatela is the architect of record, and an existing three-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Hen Hawk NY LLC has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 499 Van Buren Street, in northern Bedford-Stuyvesant, two blocks south of the J train’s Kosciuszko St. stop on Broadway. The building will measure 4,985 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 712 square feet. Suresh Manchanda’s L&C Associates is the architect of record, and permits were filed in May to demolish an existing two-story, single-family home.
