In March of last year, Cornell Realty filed plans for a 10-story apartment building at 924 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Bed-Stuy, across the street from New York City Housing Authority’s Tompkins Houses. Now, a new developer appears to be in charge, and applications have been filed for a much smaller project.
Property owner Moshe Friedman, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 114 Jefferson Street, in western Bushwick. It will measure 5,966 square feet and its residential units should average 682 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two units per floor, although one of the ground-floor apartments will contain space in the cellar, and one of the top-floor apartments will feature space in an upper mezzanine level. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based Beam Group is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot property is currently occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Myrtle Avenue stop on the J, M, and Z trains is located three blocks away.
A rendering has surfaced of the planned four-story, 10-unit residential building at 568 Lafayette Avenue, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant. The latest building permits — which YIMBY first reported on in August of 2015 — indicate the project will measure 8,542 square feet. The residential units should average 655 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Two units will occupy each of the ground and second floors, followed by three units on the third floor, and three units across the fourth and penthouse levels. Amenities include laundry facilities, bike storage, and a 300-square-foot rear yard. Borough Park-based Candor Capital is the developer and Boaz Golani’s Bronx-based Beam Group is behind the architecture. A four-story townhouse must first be demolished. The Bedford-Nostrand Avenues stop on the G train is a few steps away.
Brooklyn-based Candor Capital has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 476 Washington Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill. The structure will measure 6,533 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 1,250 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are in the works. The bottom unit will feature additional space in the cellar, while the top one will boast a roof deck. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based Beam Group is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a dilapidated three-story townhouse that has been neglected for over a decade. Demolition permits haven’t yet been filed. Since the site is located within the Clinton Hill Historic District, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will have to approve both the demolition of the existing structure and the design of the new one. The Clinton-Washington Avenues stop on the A/C trains is two blocks away.
