Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 1259 Bedford Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Located on the corner of Herkimer Street and Bedford Avenue, the lot is one block west of the Nostrand Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Tower Real Estate Investments is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 74-foot-tall development will yield 47,445 square feet, with 31,126 square feet designated for residential space and 5,176 square feet for commercial use. The concrete-based structure will have 46 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 676 square feet.

Alexander Zhitnik of Z Architecture is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. I say you are very good as a reporter on development, follow it about a six-story mixed-use building. (Hello YIMBY)

  2. too bad. what a precious building to be demolished. none of these buildings with character have a chance to survive todays and tomorrows developers.

    From the picture, that lot doesn’t look “vacant”.

      YIMBY says various lots are “vacant” quite often, when a closer look at the photo or a trip to Google Maps will tell what’s really on the lot ( usually a 2 to 4 story building).
