113-Year-Old College Building Reborn As Rentals in Bed-Stuy

New, 4 comments

On Nostrand Avenue in Bed-Stuy, a grand, but not landmarked, Renaissance Revival building has been give new life as 30 rental apartments. The building dates to 1902, and it was originally built for the Brooklyn College of Pharmacy. Before its conversion and expansion, it was most recently used as a church, and it began its residential transformation in 2012. The first listings for the new apartments went live a few weeks ago, with rents starting at $2,338. Currently, there are three two-bedrooms available, the priciest of which is listed for $3,163 a month, and two one-bedrooms. The building also has three-bedrooms, and a few unit lines are configured as duplexes with spiral staircases. The units feature exposed steel beams and wide plank hardwood floors, as well as shaker-style kitchen cabinets and subway tile bathrooms. The listings don't include a photo of the revamped facade, but kudos to the developer for not tearing the building down.
