In what seems to be an effort to pack more residential options into Bed-Stuy before more of the area becomes landmarked, Brownstoner reports that a pair of 19th-century former stables at 484 Hancock Street may be converted into a four-story multi-unit building. They would morph from single-family dwellings to six separate apartments. Renderings posted in front of the buildings show that the developer (hidden behind an LLC) plans to maintain some of the stables' ground-floor charm, but not much beyond that given the floors that would be tacked on above if the plan is approved. But an Alt-1 application filed in July was denied in December, so the DOB website lists the project as pending.
