In May, DNAinfo published the first rendering of a seven-story rental building set to replace a bodega and a dollar store at 810 Flushing Avenue in Bushwick, close to the Bed-Stuy borderlands and Woodhull Medical Center.

The squat two-story commercial building that once filled the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street has been completely demolished.

The building will measure 6,745 square feet in residential space, which means units will average 750 square feet. Murat Simsek’s engineering service Rocda is the applicant of record, and the existing two-story townhouse, apparently dating back to 1899, must first be demolished.
The NYC Housing Authority is planning to build an all-affordable building at the vacant 11,500 square-foot plot of land on the northwest corner of Myrtle Avenue and St Edwards Street, in Fort Greene, on the grounds of the Ingersoll Houses complex.
