Floral Park, N.Y.-based Metropolitan Homes has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 606 Quincy Street, located at the corner of Lewis Avenue in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The ground-up building will measure 4,788 square feet and will rise on the vacant portion of the 3,248-square-foot property. The site is also home to a dilapidated two-story townhouse at 236 Lewis Avenue. That structure will be converted into two apartments by the same developer. Across both buildings, the five total apartments should average 1,107 square feet apiece. Shahriar Afshari’s Rosyln, N.Y.-based firm is the architect of record.
