The ever-popular ODA is bringing its brand of modern architecture to the ever-gentrifying Crown Heights. As expected, part of the old Nassau Brewery on Franklin Avenue between Bergen and Dean Streets is becoming a residential building with retail space on the ground floor. New York YIMBY spotted the permits, which were filed for 937 Bergen Street, but Brownstoner contacted the site owner, who explains that the new eight-story, 119-unit building will actually rise on Dean Street. The owner, Fabian Friedland, said that three low-rise buildings on Dean Street will be demolished to makeway for the new structure. Friedland is in the process of selling the site, which also fronts on Franklin, to a new owner.
The 19th century brick industrial building on Bergen Street, which was not part of the sale, will eventually be converted into apartments with ground floor retail. It's unclear why the plans for the Dean Street side had to be filed under the Bergen Street address, but the Department of Buildings shows that filings with the Department of City Planning show that they are connected.
