Renderings have been revealed for a five-story residential building proposed for 514 Halsey Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The surrounding area is almost exclusively residential, with a few small commercial locations dotting the avenues nearby. The site is eight blocks away from the Utica Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the A and C trains. The project was put before the Brooklyn Community Board Landmarks Meeting earlier this month, and Romel Salam will be responsible for development.
The fifty-foot tall structure will yield 4,290 square feet of space, to be divided amongst three apartments. The units will average 1,430 square feet apiece. Each apartment will be a duplex, with the ground and cellar room utilized for the first floor unit.
The design is an asymmetrical rendition of the typical masonry townhouse façade. It rises about fifteen to twenty feet above the surrounding buildings, with the top floor stepped inwards to make room for an open-air terrace. Renderings of the back reveal a garden space, and balconies on the second, fourth, and fifth floors.
Kane Architecture and Urban Design are designing the project.
The site is currently undeveloped, and an estimated completion date has not been announced.
