Permits have been filed for a five-story religious facility at 4902 14th Avenue in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The synagogue will rise in the heart of the neighborhood’s Jewish community. The site is five blocks away from the 50th Street subway station, serviced by the D trains. Manuel Scharf of Scharf Group LLC will be responsible for the development.
The 70-foot tall structure will yield 91,140 square feet, with 67,800 square feet dedicated to synagogue use. The temple will occupy floors two and up, with space for study on the fourth floor, and a bakery crowning the development. A rooftop terrace will be included. The lower floors of the religious space will include a prayer room, a lounge, mikva, a conference room with capacity for over 300 people, and a library with capacity for 96 people.
J Frankl and C Mallea Associates will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits have not been filed for the existing structure. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
