Last week, YIMBY wrote about a pair of apartment buildings planned in Ridgewood, which will be Brookland Capital’s fist project in Queens. Now we have a rendering for their condo development at 443 Bainbridge Street in Bed-Stuy, a few blocks from the developer’s offices on Malcolm X Boulevard.
A little two-story brick house was demolished in the summer of 2014 to make way for the four-story condo building. The project got its work permits later that year, and the development has been slowly taking shape between Howard and Saratoga Avenues. The new building will be covered in gray and white panels, which mirror the gray vinyl cladding on the small wood frame house next door. The facade will even have a cornice, albeit a very modern one.
The 40-foot-tall structure will hold six apartments and 4,200 square feet of residential space. The average unit will measure just 700 square feet, meaning these will probably be studios and one-bedrooms. There will be two units each on the first three floors, and one of the third floor units will be a penthouse duplex.
Just like Brookland’s condos at 664 Jefferson Avenue, PACS Architecture designed the building, and Suresh Manchanda’s L&C Associates filed the permits. Boaz Gilad’s firm picked up the 2,200-square-foot plot for $450,000 in early 2014.
Construction is expected to finish in the next few months, and the condos are scheduled to hit the market in the spring.
