In the heart of Bed-Stuy, a decrepit three-story frame house is being torn down to make way for a six-story development at 157 Tompkins Avenue, near the Myrtle-Willoughby Avenue G stop. YIMBY has a rendering for the new building, a starkly modern addition to an aging, prewar block between Willoughby Avenue and Hart Street.
Earlier this year, the two-story hardware store at 420 Tompkins Avenue, in southwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, was demolished to make way for a six-story, 44-unit residential building, and now the steel-framed structure is a story above street level, per Brownstoner. Charles Mallea is designing, and the building will measure 29,908 square feet, featuring rental-sized units averaging 680 square feet. Bed-Stuy-based CS Management is developing, and completion is expected in the spring of 2016.
Whitestone-based Zankera Construction Inc. has filed applications for 10 three-story, multi-family residential buildings spanning 149-21 – 149-39 78th Street, in Lindenwood, directly east of Brooklyn’s Cypress Hills. The development will total 30 residential units — three per building — across 35,690 square feet of space, making for spacious average units of 1,190 square feet. Platonic Solids Architecture is designing, and the swath of land is currently vacant.
YIMBY previously reported that construction began on the through-block project spanning from 527 West 27th Street to 520 West 28th Street back in January, and we followed up with a partial reveal from the construction documents later that month. Now we have the full renderings for the building, dubbed Jardim, which is being designed by Isay Weinfeld. Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group are developing the project, and Pizzarotti IBC is the builder.
Rego Park-based East Coast Realty has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 1204 St. Marks Avenue, in eastern Crown Heights, six blocks in either direction to the A/C or 3/4/5 trains’ stop at Utica Avenue. The building will measure a total 6,346 square feet, with units averaging a rental-sized 635 square feet apiece; two units will share part of the fifth floor and a sixth-floor penthouse. Woody Chen’s Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record, and a two-story townhouse, acquired for $640,000 in June, must first be demolished.
