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.
Matt Schneider, operating under an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 424 Evergreen Avenue, in central Bushwick, three blocks from the Gates Av. stop on the J/Z subway.
