An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 91 Franklin Avenue, located in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant. The project would measure 16,195 square feet and its residential units should average 1,567 square feet apiece, indicative of apartments with family-sized configurations. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based BEAM Group is the architect of record. The 5,000-square-foot site is occupied by a three-story townhouse and a single-story garage. Demolition permits have not been filed at this time. The project will have to receive approval through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) since the site is located in a manufacturing district.
Isaac Chetrit’s AB & Sons is preparing to formally propose rezoning the property at 56-10 Decatur Street, in Ridgewood, from its current manufacturing zoning (M1-4D) to a residential zone that allows for apartments. The developer plans to file applications with the Department of City Planning in the next few months, The Real Deal reported.

The project is set to include five towers, the New York Times reported, although their height was not disclosed. Thirty percent of the units, or 475 apartments, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. One of the residential towers will be geared towards “older tenants.” There would also be retail space and a 15,000-square-foot recreation center.
