A formerly abandoned house at 860 Macon Street in northern Bedford-Stuyvesant is getting a dramatic upgrade and expansion, and YIMBY has a rendering of what’s in store.

Construction has been completed on the five-story, 10-unit residential building under development at 1485 Gates Avenue, in central Bushwick. The latest building permits indicate it measures 11,017 square feet. Its residential units should average 873 square feet apiece, which mean they could be either condominiums or rental apartments. Amenities include laundry facilities and a rooftop recreational space. Yoel Berkovits is the developer. Beam Group is the design architect, while Joseph A. Mucciolo’s Long Island-based architectural firm is serving as the executive architect. Occupancy is expected soon. YIMBY first reported on the project when new building applications were filed in July of 2014. The Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues stop on the L and M trains is two blocks away.
The eclectic facade design has finally emerged for two four-story buildings going up at 1444-1446 Bedford Avenue in Crown Heights, after a year and a half of construction.
