Three-Story, Three-Unit Residential Building Coming to 124 Sterling Street, Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Property owner Martin Forrester has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 124 Sterling Street, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, located two blocks from the Sterling Street stop on the 2/5 trains. The structure will measure 3,201 square feet, which means its full-floor residential units should average 1,067 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The ground floor apartment will be a duplex and will feature additional private space in the cellar. Brooklyn Navy Yard-based Freeform + Deform is the architect of record. The 2,575-square-foot corner site, at Bedford Avenue, was occupied by a four-story apartment building until it was demolished in 2006.
