Located between Schenck Avenue and Barbey Street in East New York, Brooklyn, permits are up for a new residential project at 518-523 Belmont Avenue. Nearby transit access is two city blocks west, at the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains on Pitkin Avenue. The project consists of supportive housing in conjunction with the New York City Department of Housing and Preservation’s Supportive Housing Loan Program.
According to the rendering released, the 16-dwelling building has a dual-tone brick facade with ironwork railings along the rooftop and ground floor. The three-story building on the corner lot also has a rear yard. DeLaCour, Ferrara & Church Architects, P.C. is responsible for the design.
Demolition permits will likely not be filed as the lots are vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
