Recently, green construction walls went up around an iconic detached house at the corner of Bedford Avenue and Lenox Road in Flatbush. Although it’s not the most beautiful house in the neighborhood, the two-and-a-half story home is one of several that lends an air of dignity to this stretch of Bedford in Prospect Lefferts Gardens and northern Flatbush. Now, like many standalone houses in the neighborhood, it will bite the dust for an apartment building. Plans were filed last week to erect a seven-story apartment building there at 100 Lenox Road, a few blocks southeast of Prospect Park.
Boaz Gilad’s Brookland Capital has become one of the most prolific small developers in Brooklyn, with projects from Williamsburg to Ocean Hill. Now, the Bed-Stuy-based firm has filed applications for eight stories of apartments at 15 East 19th Street, its sixth project in the neighborhood southeast of Prospect Park.
Steve Pringle, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a two four-story, multi-family residential buildings at 2807-2809 Snyder Avenue, in Flatbush, located two blocks from the Church Avenue stop on the 2/5 trains. 2807 Snyder Avenue will host eight residential units across 6,168 square feet of space, which means its units should average a rental-sized 771 square feet apiece. 2809 Snyder Avenue will contain 10 residential units and will measure a slightly larger 7,450 square feet, which means units there should average 745 square feet apiece. No. 2807 will feature a penthouse level for one of the fourth floors units, but no. 2809 will not have any upper penthouse floors. Queens-based Julien Flander is the applicant of record. The 50-foot-wide site is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in January.
Another day, another new project in Flatbush. YIMBY recently stumbled across a rendering for a six-story apartment building coming to 45 Lenox Road, between Flatbush and Bedford avenues.
