Property owner Elad Ben-Kimon, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 622 Madison Street, in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The project will measure 5,100 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 982 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The structure will be topped by a roof terrace. Olabanji B. Awosika’s Jamaica-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot lot is currently vacant. The Utica Avenue stop on the A/C trains is 10 blocks to the south.
The Mann Group is currently converting the three-story, 35,000-square-foot former industrial building at 199 Cook Street, on the southern end of East Williamsburg, into a mixed-use commercial building, Commercial Observer reports. The ground floor will host retail space, followed by office space on part of the cellar level and the entire second and third floors. Additionally, a 3,000-square-foot restaurant will be located in the cellar. The commercial spaces will break down into five artist’s galleries and 28 office units. The structure will be topped by a rooftop lounge. Syndicate Architecture is behind the conversion’s design and completion is expected in early 2017. The property was acquired for $6 million in 2013.
The Asian Americans for Equality Community Development Fund (AAFE CDF) has filed applications for a seven-story, 88,749-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 133-04 39th Avenue, located at the corner of College Point Boulevard in downtown Flushing. The new building will feature retail space on the ground floor, followed by 18,142 square feet of non-profit community facility space on the second, third, and fifth floors, and office space on the fourth, sixth, and seventh floors. The retail and office space will add up to 42,986 square feet. A 72-car parking garage will be located underground. Midtown East-based JCJ Architecture is the architect of record. The 13,388-square-foot property is currently occupied by a single-story commercial building. Demolition permits were filed in April. The Flushing-Main Street stop on the 7 train is two blocks away.
Avery Hall Investments is developing upscale apartments all over brownstone Brooklyn, and their latest project is headed to 145 President Street, in Carroll Gardens. The East Village-based builder filed new building applications for the project yesterday, and YIMBY spotted this rendering of it on their website.
YIMBY often champions infrastructure improvements. As Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently revealed massive design improvements planned for both subway trains and subway cars, we thought this would be a good opportunity for a little time travel.
