All over Bed-Stuy, little row houses are giving way to apartment buildings. The latest example comes to us from the neighborhood’s western borderlands with Clinton Hill, at 169 Lexington Avenue.
A four-story building is under construction there, between Franklin and Bedford Avenues. The development will hold four condos, and we’re sure they’ll sell quickly. This area has become prime territory for gentrifier-friendly stores and restaurants, with Dough, Stonefruit Espresso+Kitchen, Black Swan, and Bedford Hill Coffee Bar all within easy walking distance. And the Bedford-Nostrand G train stop is only three blocks away.
Those four apartments will be split across 4,000 square feet, creating average units of 1,000 square feet. Each upper floor apartment will get a balcony, and the first-floor unit may have a backyard too.
The developer is Infinity Properties, which is based on Patchen Avenue in eastern Bed-Stuy. Briarwood-based architect Gerald Caliendo is responsible for the design.
Infinity picked up the 2,000-square-foot property for $600,000 in October 2014, paying $150 for each square foot of its planned building.
