Applications, originally filed in 2013, have surfaced for a three-story, five-unit residential building at 123 Franklin Avenue, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant. The building will measure 8,300 square feet, so units will average a spacious 1,660 square feet. The property owner is Sruly Rosenburg, and Julien Flander is the applicant of record. Demolition was approved for the existing three-story townhouse in June.

Permits Filed: 88 Walworth Street, Factory to Synagogue Conversion in Bed-Stuy

Deep in the Hasidic territory at the northern edge of Bedford-Stuyvesant, old industrial buildings bump up against new apartments with staggered balconies alongside kosher grocery stores and bakeries. The neighborhood is dotted with new synagogues and yeshivas, built to keep up with the fast-growing population of ultra-Orthodox Jews. And every once in a while, an organization takes over an old factory to convert it, instead of tearing it down.

Yeshiva Ahavas Israel, headquartered in a curved, 1920s brick factory at Franklin and Flushing Avenues, found one such industrial building nearby at 88 Walworth Street. Earlier this week, they filed plans to convert the low-slung structure between Park and Myrtle Avenues into a house of worship.
