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.
Foundation work is currently underway at 1700 Broadway, in Ocean Hill, where a six-story, 79-unit mixed-use building is planned, a block from the J/Z train’s stop at Chauncey Street. According to Brownstoner, the building — being developed by SUS and Alembic Community Development — will be 100% affordable, and will feature 4,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Peter Woll is the architect of record, and completion is expected in 2016.
In March, Bushwick-based developer Level One Holdings filed applications for a seven-story apartment building at 740 Dekalb Avenue between Marcy and Tompkins Avenues, in the heart of Bed-Stuy. The development got its new building permits last month, and YIMBY has the first look at what will rise on the empty lot.
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.
