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.
Prospect Lefferts Gardens
It was over a year ago YIMBY last checked in on the mixed-use project under construction at 626 Flatbush Avenue, between Fenimore Street and Hawthorne Street in Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood. At that time, the 23-story building had just topped out. Now, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, exterior work on the Marvel Architects-designed building is very close to done.
Brookland Capital is taking Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Flatbush by storm. Yesterday the Bed-Stuy-based developer filed plans for an eight-story building at 77 Clarkson Avenue, which will be its fifth new project in the area.
David Shavolian, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, 11-unit residential building at 19 Clarkson Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, located three blocks from the Parkside Avenue stop on the Q train. The building will measure 8,098 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 736 square feet apiece. An existing two-story, 20-foot-wide rowhouse – currently being used as a day care – will have to be razed. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the applicant of record.

Residential units are to begin on the second floor and will average a rental-sized 667 square feet apiece. Bluarch Architecture is the applicant of record. An existing two-story brick home and an adjacent dilapidated single-story structure will have to be demolished.
