The wave of development that’s transformed western Crown Heights is moving east toward Utica Avenue. Today, we have a look at a small project under construction at 1119 St. Marks Avenue, between Schenectady and Utica avenues.
The four-story apartment building will replace an old wood frame house, which was torn down in the summer of 2013. The 54-foot-tall structure will hold eight apartments and 6,624 square feet of residential space. The apartments will be rentals, and they’ll average 828 square feet. Each of the first three floors would include two units, topped by two duplex penthouses.
There will be laundry in the basement, and the building will be small enough that no parking is required.
The developer is Moshe Friedman, of Crown Heights-based NSD NY, and Olabanji B Awosika is the architect.
The lot is relatively small at just 24-feet-wide, and it sold for $1,725,000 in December, or $260 for each square foot of the building now under construction.
Work is expected to finish in July, according to Friedman.
