Brooklyn’s boom continues apace, and today, YIMBY has the reveal for the redevelopment of the existing building at 489 Washington Avenue, in Clinton Hill. The site is three blocks away from the Clinton-Washington Avenue subway station, serviced by the C trains. GB Properties is responsible for the applications. Construction will alter the extant structure, resulting in a tenfold increase in the unit count.
Ryan Garbo’s Brooklyn-based GB Properties has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 751 Lexington Avenue, in central Bedford-Stuyvesant, four blocks from the J train’s stop at Kosciuszko Street and Broadway. The building will measure 7,200 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 720 square feet. Great Neck-based Bahary Architecture is the architect of record, and an existing single-story brick structure must first be demolished.
On a 1,040 square-foot vacant lot in northern Williamsburg, GB Properties plans to build a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building measuring just 5,202 square feet. The piece of land is at 291 North 8th Street, two blocks north of the G train’s stop at Metropolitan Avenue, and the building will feature 3,131 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels. Above, full-floor units will average 1,040 square feet apiece. Robert Bahary’s Great Neck-based Bahary Architecture is designing.
