A few blocks east of the Kings Highway stop on the B and Q trains, new building applications have been filed for 1669 East 19th Street, just to the west of the official boundary for Brooklyn’s Madison neighborhood. The eight-story residential structure will span 19,540 square feet, which will be divided amongst 29 units, averaging under 700 square feet apiece. That means rentals are likely. Genaro Ureata of Studio Gallos is listed as the architect, and Gavriel Sakaff of Agam Development, LLC, is developing.
In January, Kushner Real Estate Group and Mark Built Homes acquired, for $12 million from the borough, the five-acre development site at 33 Green Village Road, in the northern New Jersey community of Madison. Last week, the developers hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for their four-story, 135-unit mixed-use complex, dubbed Madison Place, TapIntoMadison reports. Planned is a 100-unit component called Rose Hall, which will host market-rate rental apartments, and a 35-unit component named Madison Place, which will contain condominiums. Rose Hall will also feature ground-floor commercial space for retail and restaurants, as well as a 3,000-square-foot community center. The site was previously occupied by the long-vacant Green Village Road School, which has since been demolished. Marchetto Higgins Stieve and landscape architecture firm Melillo + Bauer Associates are designing. Completion is expected in 2017. The complex will be located three blocks north of NJ Transit’s Madison station.
Ocean Avenue is lined with large, detached single-family homes on deep lots, making it incredibly attractive to developers who want to construct mid-rise apartment buildings in low-slung sections of southern Brooklyn. Last week, one of those developers filed an application to build a six-story residential project at 2503 Ocean Avenue, on the border between Madison and Sheepshead Bay.
Ocean Bay Building Management has filed construction permits, reviving plans filed back in the summer of 2014, for their nine-story, 56-unit mixed-use building at 2126-2130 Ocean Avenue, in Madison (near the southern Midwood border). The building will measure nearly 53,100 square feet and includes a 510 square-foot community facility. Three two-story buildings were recently demolished to make-way for the project, and Building Consulting Engineering is the architect of record.
Deep in southern Brooklyn, in the borderlands between Midwood and Sheepshead Bay, a developer is planning to demolish two houses to make way for an eight-story apartment building at 2226 Ocean Avenue.
