Building plan prognosticators hoping to read the tea leaves of architectural drawings filed at the Department of Buildings don't have much to work with when it comes to 176 Bedford Avenue—present home of the boarded up Salvation Army and rumored destination for a Brooklyn Apple Store. Any similarities between the drawings and the plan end at the featureless box featured in filed drawings and Bohlin Cywinski Jackson's Fifth Avenue Apple cube. The firm on record for the project is still Fradkin & McCaplin Architects, a firm that's done work for the Salvation Army in the past. In 2009 Fradkin & McCaplin designed and phased the modernisation and expansion of the Salvation Army's adult rehab center [pdf] in Brooklyn. Whatever is destined for the site, demolition on the current structure is coming soon. Brownstoner reports that neighbors have received demolition notices.
