Large 118-Unit Rental Now Rising On Bed-Stuy's Franklin Ave.

New, 4 comments

A huge vacant lot on Franklin Avenue between Myrtle and Willoughby Avenues in Bed-Stuy will be vacant no longer. Adam America Real Estate is constructing an 80,000-square-foot rental building that stretches from 168-180 Franklin. DNAinfo first spotted the renderings last summer, and the most recent permits were approved by Department of Buildings just last month. Isaac and Stern designed the rather boring five-story slab, which will hold 118 rental apartments and 59 parking spaces. According to the developer's website, Amenities include a rooftop deck, a gym, and bike parking, as well as a "student copy center," so it's clear that the "high-end residential rental units, including studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments" will be marketed to Pratt students.
