Seven-Story, 38-Unit Mixed-Use Project Four Stories Up At 1930 Bedford Avenue, Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Construction is now four stories above street level at 1930 Bedford Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, where a seven-story, 38-unit mixed-use project is under development. The latest photo is courtesy of prolific construction photographer Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the project will eventually measure 59,155 square feet. There will be 7,441 square feet of medical offices on the cellar through second floors, followed by the residential units, which should average 810 square feet apiece and are likely to be rentals. Nik Lavrinoff is the developer and Z Architecture is the architect. Completion is expected in 2017.

Permits Filed: 640 Parkside Avenue, Medical/Storage Facility in Prospect Lefferts Gardens

In the fight over whether to rezone Prospect Lefferts Gardens in Brooklyn, a few industrially zoned blocks have become major sticking points. Activists have argued that a few highway-like blocks along Empire Boulevard, at the northwestern edge of the neighborhood, would produce high-rise development and gentrification if they were rezoned to allow new apartments. But there are two more industrial blocks at the southern end of the hood, on Parkside Avenue between Rogers and New York avenues, and now, a new building may replace an old warehouse there at 640 Parkside Avenue, between Rogers and Nostrand avenues.
