Yesterday, YIMBY reported on the permit filing for 86 Delancey Street, a 12-story building on the Lower East Side developed by Helm Equities and designed by Shlomo Wygoda’s SWA Architecture.
Well later that day, the same two names appeared on a new permit filing in an entirely different borough, for a 19-unit building on Eastern Parkway in the heart of Crown Heights.
At 834 Nostrand Avenue, one of Crown Heights’s most prominent corners, Helm plans to erect a new seven-story residential building. Starting from the basement, the building will include an 18-space automated garage, two stores totaling about 5,500 square feet, another similarly sized community facility space above that, and then five floors with 19 apartments. Units will range from 800 square feet on lower levels, to over 1,400 square feet on floors six and seven.
The project should be the second to join Eastern Parkway this development cycle, following behind 341 Eastern Parkway, at Franklin Avenue. No. 341 is a rental building with condo finishes, with studios starting north of $2,000 a month and the neighborhood’s first Starbucks on the ground floor. We expect the Nostrand Avenue building, just one subway stop away, to do just as well by the time it opens in (hopefully) a few years.
