Crown Heights-based developer Hello Living is putting up new buildings all over central Brooklyn, mostly in neighborhoods north and east of Prospect Park. YIMBY recently swung by the firm’s sizable development under construction at 271 Lenox Road, at the corner of Nostrand Avenue in Flatbush.
Recently, green construction walls went up around an iconic detached house at the corner of Bedford Avenue and Lenox Road in Flatbush. Although it’s not the most beautiful house in the neighborhood, the two-and-a-half story home is one of several that lends an air of dignity to this stretch of Bedford in Prospect Lefferts Gardens and northern Flatbush. Now, like many standalone houses in the neighborhood, it will bite the dust for an apartment building. Plans were filed last week to erect a seven-story apartment building there at 100 Lenox Road, a few blocks southeast of Prospect Park.
In the final days of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 78-unit residential building at 2100 Bedford Avenue, in northern Flatbush, located within five blocks from stops on the Q, 2, and 5 trains. In early 2015, demolition was underway on three 2.5-story wood-framed houses, and by the summer the properties were cleared. Construction began sometime after, and within the last few weeks, the structure has topped out, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The 86,622 square-foot balconied structure will have 60,364 square feet of residential space, which means rental units will average 774 square feet apiece. Floral Park-based Metropolitan Homes is developing and Karl Fischer Architect is designing the project.
Developments are cropping up all along Nostrand Avenue in Flatbush, and today we have a rendering for two four-story buildings headed to corner of Erasmus Street, just south of the Church Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains.
Brookland Capital had a busy day at the Department of Buildings yesterday, with filings for projects in the eastern Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Ocean Hill and yet another development in Flatbush. The eight-story building at 154 Lenox Road, highlighted here, will be the developer’s fourth in the area southeast of Prospect Park.
