As the MTA considers shutting down the L train for as long as three years, we’re glad to see Bushwick’s residential market chugging along in areas where residents can take other trains. On Thursday, new building applications were filed for an apartment building at 703 Hart Street in Bushwick.
The five-story development would replace a vacant lot and an aging apartment building between Central Avenue and Wilson Avenue, two blocks from the Central Avenue M train stop. Its 24 units would be spread across 16,418 square feet of residential space, yielding average units of 680 square feet. A 5,800-square-foot community facility would fill the bottom floor, followed by six units apiece on the upper stories.
There would also be a 13-car garage in the cellar, which is the minimum needed to satisfy zoning requirements.
The developer is Kurt Wolf of Wolf Condenser Works, who lists a business address next door at 701 Hart Street. Flushing-based Fang Architect applied for the permits.
