An empty lot in the historic neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant is looking to be filled. The site at 514 Halsey Street has now seen two proposals by Kane Architecture and Urban Design. Their first proposal to the Landmark Preservation Commission was four months prior and was rejected. Today, we can reveal the redesigned site following the first hearing.
514 Halsey Street
Renderings have been revealed for a five-story residential building proposed for 514 Halsey Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The surrounding area is almost exclusively residential, with a few small commercial locations dotting the avenues nearby. The site is eight blocks away from the Utica Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the A and C trains. The project was put before the Brooklyn Community Board Landmarks Meeting earlier this month, and Romel Salam will be responsible for development.
Princeton, N.J.-based property owner Romel Salam has filed applications for a five-story, three-unit residential building at 514 Halsey Street, in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The project will measure 5,496 square feet and its residential units should average 1,444 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The first apartment will be hosted on the ground and cellar levels, followed by the second apartment on the second and third floor, and the third apartment on the top two floors. Theodore Kane’s Union Square-based Kane Architecture & Urban Design (a.k.a. KANE A|UD) is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot property is currently vacant. The site is located six blocks from the Utica Avenue stop on the A/C trains.
