Proposals from the Department of Housing Preservation & Development could facilitate the construction of a new three-story residential building in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The property is located at 350 Malcolm X. Boulevard within the neighborhood’s Expanded Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, requiring initial approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Renderings from Gerald J. Caliendo Architects reveal a tan brick façade with double-paned, black-framed windows at the second and third floors. The ground level features decorative wood-trimmed doors and windows that are also encased in black frames.
The rear façade will be comprised of cement stucco; however, the color of the façade is not specified in the submitted proposals.
The property will contain three separate units. The most premium duplex unit will occupy the entire first floor and a portion of the second level and will span 1,125 square feet offering three large bedrooms. The remaining 400 square feet of the second floor will support a rear-facing studio unit. The final apartment on the third floor will offer two bedrooms spanning a total 775 square feet.
Floor plans submitted as part of the proposals do not indicate the inclusion of residential amenities or any roof-level activations.
At this time, the construction site sits vacant between two low-rise retail structures. It is not clear when the project might begin.
