Normally when YIMBY sees filings in south Brooklyn, they’re for projects in Madison, Brighton Beach or Coney Island. But last week, new building applications surfaced for a small market-rate development at 1837 Benson Avenue in Bath Beach, only a few blocks from the shores of Gravesend Bay.
Kensington-based Success Custom Builders has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1551 49th Street, in central Borough Park, four blocks east of the 50th Street stop on the D train. The building will measure 9,015 square feet, which means units will average 1,127 square feet. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the applicant of record, and a brick 2.5-story home must first be demolished.
Samuel Karpf, operating under an LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, 15-unit mixed-use building at 8 Fairview Place, in northern Flatbush, right around the corner from the Church Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure 22,138 square feet, and 4,549 and 480 square feet of retail and health care facilities, respectively, will be located on the ground floor. On the floors above, units will average 1,141 square feet apiece. Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. Before construction begins, two existing 2.5-story homes must be demolished.
Last week, YIMBY brought you the first look at B+B Capital’s South Williamsburg condos on South 3rd Street. Now we have a rendering for another B+B development under construction a bit further south, at 176-178 Division Avenue.
Kensington-based Homes R Beautiful Re LLC has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 263 East 9th Street, in northern Kensington, six blocks from the Q train’s stop at Beverly Road. The building will measure a total 4,977 square feet, and units will average 830 square feet apiece. Borough Park-based Bricolage Designs is the architect, and a two-story house must first be demolished.
