Boaz Gilad’s Brookland Capital is building small rental and condo projects from Williamsburg to Flatbush, and yesterday they ventured just over the Bushwick border to Ridgewood. Plans were filed for two identical, five-story apartment buildings at 16-61 and 16-71 Summerfield Street, three blocks from the Halsey Street stop on the L train.
Each building would have 28 apartments and 19,365 square feet of residential space, for relatively small units averaging 690 square feet. The layouts would also be the same, with two units on the ground floor, seven each on floors two through four, and five units on the fifth floor.
Tenants would be able to take advantage of laundry and storage in the cellar, a gym on the first floor, and a shared roof deck. There would also be 14 parking spots for each building – nine open ones and five in a garage – which is the minimum required by zoning.
Like most of Brookland’s projects, Feingold and Gregory Architects applied for the permits.
Gilad’s LLC acquired the 20,000-square-foot property for an undisclosed amount last August. A single-story garage currently occupies the lot between Cypress and Wyckoff Avenues.
While this is technically their first project in Queens, they have two developments under construction just south of here in Bushwick, at 303-309 Cooper Street and 322 Menahan Street.
