Boaz Gilad’s Brookland Capital has become one of the most prolific small developers in Brooklyn, with projects from Williamsburg to Ocean Hill. Now, the Bed-Stuy-based firm has filed applications for eight stories of apartments at 15 East 19th Street in Flatbush, its sixth project in the neighborhood southeast of Prospect Park.
The 74-foot-tall building would replace two little brick houses just off Church Avenue. The park is a five-minute walk from here, and the Church Avenue stop on the B and Q trains is only a block away.
The development would hold 37 apartments and 26,775 square feet of residential space. Average units would measure 723 square feet.
Feingold and Gregory Architects applied for the permits, but another firm will likely design the project. RoArt created the design for two of Gilad’s other projects – a crop of condos nearby at 88-92 Linden Boulevard and an 11-story building on Fourth Avenue in Park Slope.
Brookland picked up the two homes for $4 million in March.
Besides Linden Boulevard and East 19th Street, Brookland is working on four more developments in the hood. The firm filed plans for an eight-story building at 77 Clarkson Avenue in February, another eight-story project at 154 Lenox Road in December, and a third is under construction at 56 East 21st Street. And the firm recently purchased a lot at 227 Clarkson Avenue, which will eventually become condos.
