149 Skillman Street

Four-Story, Five-Unit Residential Project Filed At 149 Skillman Street, Bedford-Stuyvesant

Property owner David Rubin, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 149 Skillman Street, in northwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, three blocks north of the Bedford-Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. The 10,000 square-foot structure would rise on a 50-foot-wide vacant lot and boast family-sized units averaging 2,000 square feet apiece. The project will likely cater to the Hasidic population, who notably populate this part of Bed-Stuy and, to the north, South Williamsburg. Greenwich Village-based De-Jan Lu Architect is the architect of record.

1460 Blake Avenue

Twin Two-Unit Residential Buildings Coming To 1460 Blake Avenue, East New York

In the borderlands of East New York and Lindenwood, where Brooklyn meets Queens, property owner Luz Perez Ortiz has filed applications for two two-family residential buildings at 1460-1462 Blake Avenue. The development would measure 7,272 square feet in total, and its four residential units would average a spacious 1,818 square feet apiece. Each structure would rise three stories in height, although units would be located on the upper two levels only. The neighborhood, dubbed The Hole, is frequently subject to flooding and is severely disinvested in by the city. The site, however, is located just west of the most sunken streets, some of which are 30 feet below grade. Felix Tambasco’s Brooklyn-based Sears Tambasco Architecture is the applicant of record.
