Plans to redevelop existing garage structures in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn will again return to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for approvals, in a third attempt to kick-off the project. Located at 524-534 Halsey Street, the structure will contain a combination of apartments and town homes.
Historically, the LPC has had many problems with the developer’s proposal to redevelop the building, which the commission felt might be out of scale for the block. However, in the second round of hearings, Brookland Capital received approvals from the commission to move forward.
Today, the developer has returned with a modified scope, requiring new approvals. The Brooklyn Home Company appears to the be project’s architect.
The two-building project includes the redevelopment of an existing three-story structure at 534 Halsey Street, and a new four-story garage building at 524 Halsey Street that will replace a neighboring property. New proposals also include a 40-foot setback at the property’s 4th floor, an extension of the existing cornice, a new elevator bulkhead with a stucco encasement, and the removal of brown paint to expose the existing brick facade.
