Back in October of 2014, construction was underway to convert the single-story Roosevelt Savings Bank building at 1024 Gates Avenue, in far-northern Ocean Hill, into a six-story, 50-unit residential building. Four floors were added to the interior of the existing bank building, at which point the structure received a single-story vertical expansion (its sixth floor). Now, construction has entirely wrapped up. Dubbed the Brooklyn-Roosevelt, leasing is underway for some of its studios and one-bedrooms, Curbed NY reported. The units, averaging 699 square feet apiece, are rental apartments, and amenities include a café, a fitness center, laundry facilities, bike storage, a lounge/club, a yoga room, a 12-seat movie theater, and on-site parking. Kai Management is the developer, while Queens-based NuAn Design Corporation is behind the architecture. Occupancy is expected in June and July, although some of the amenities won’t be ready until the fall.
Shimon Kaufman, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 836 Monroe Street, in Ocean Hill, located two blocks from the Gates Avenue stop on the J/Z train.

There will be two units each floor on the ground and second levels, followed by two units spanning across the third floor and a mezzanine level, and a single unit on the fourth floor. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based BMG Design Build is the architect of record. An existing three-story townhouse must first be demolished.

Brooklyn-based JIH Builders Group has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 847 Madison Street, in northern Ocean Hill, located two blocks from the Gates Avenue stop on the J/Z trains.

An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has been filing applications since January of 2014 for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 1776 Broadway, and a three-story, two-unit residential building at 483 Marion Street, in Ocean Hill, located directly below the Chauncey Street stop on the J/Z trains. The new buildings will measure 6,201 and 3,205 square feet each, respectively, and the larger building will feature 1,240 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Across both buildings, there will be 6,124 square feet of residential space, which means the apartments should average a spacious 1,225 square feet apiece. The units could be new-construction family-sized condominiums, which would be unprecedented in this part of Brooklyn for this building cycle. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 3,342-square-foot lot is currently vacant.
