Revealed: 75 Ralph Avenue, 6-Story Residential Development Coming to Bed-Stuy

Just about one year ago, YIMBY reported on permits for a new six-story residential building at 75 Ralph Avenue, in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy. Now, we can reveal the project, which will be surprisingly attractive; Charles Mallea is the architect, and Solomon Feder of 75 Ralph LLC is the developer.

The 57-unit building will total 38,462 square feet, and the sub-700 foot unit average is likely indicative of rentals. The cellar will include two recreation rooms, 29 bike parking spots, and 29 regular parking spots. Above, there will be nine units on the first floor, and ten apartments on floors two through five. The penthouse level will have eight units.

The building’s facade will be predominantly brick, though it will be interspersed with either a plastic-looking metal or a metallic-looking plastic. Gridded windows are not typically paired with PTACs, but in this instance they do not look particularly horrible. Each window is on the same axis as the metal-looking plastic, which offers the beastly air-conditioning units an opportunity for camouflage.

In terms of its urban form, the project will be a net positive, and its envelope will be flush against its neighbors. There will also be a small setback between the fifth and penthouse floors, with terraces also located on the roof, per the greenery in the rendering.

75 Ralph Avenue replaces an old laundromat, and completion would appear likely by 2016 or so.
