Two-Story, 8,100-Square-Foot Ritualarium Planned At 607 Avenue K, Midwood

The Sephardic Mikveh of Midwood has filed applications for a two-story, 8,143-square-foot ritualarium at 607 Avenue K, located on the corner of Ocean Parkway in Midwood. The facility will feature a ritual area in the cellar, administrative offices and a waiting area on the ground floor, and a multi-purpose room on the second floor. The Brooklyn-based Spiral Group is the architect of record of the 27-foot-tall structure. The 3,600-square-foot lot is vacant. Its three-story predecessor was demolished back in 2007. The Avenue J stop on the Q train is 10 blocks away.
