Five-Story, Three-Unit Residential Building Planned at 514 Halsey Street, Bedford-Stuyvesant

Princeton, N.J.-based property owner Romel Salam has filed applications for a five-story, three-unit residential building at 514 Halsey Street, in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The project will measure 5,496 square feet and its residential units should average 1,444 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The first apartment will be hosted on the ground and cellar levels, followed by the second apartment on the second and third floor, and the third apartment on the top two floors. Theodore Kane’s Union Square-based Kane Architecture & Urban Design (a.k.a. KANE A|UD) is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot property is currently vacant. The site is located six blocks from the Utica Avenue stop on the A/C trains.
