Yet Another Boaz Gilad Development Reveals Itself in Bed-Stuy

One of many new developments that Boaz Gilad's Brookland Capital is currently planning in Brooklyn is this four-story structure at 447 Decatur Street, at the edge of the proposed (and long-shelved) Stuyvesant East Historic District. The Stuyvesant East Preservation Action League describes the district as "one of New York's most intact 19th century enclaves, with over 95 percent of its original buildings still present and, for the most part, still functioning in their originally intended roles." The block that 447 Decatur sits on is a mix of brick buildings, stately brownstones, and a few row houses. The planned building, however, appears to be a mix of brick, metal, and, predominantly, glass. Clearly, architects Arc Architecture + Design Studio did not take any cues from the surrounding architecture (this, apparently, being one of the blocks that Gilad has deemed not beautiful enough to communicate with).

The building will include six units, averaging 663 square feet each. Completion is anticipated in July of 2016.
