A new mixed-use building is coming to 802-806 Myrtle Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The project is being developed by A-1 Properties, and it will have 5,700 square feet of retail space at street level and 44 rental apartments. Designed by J. Frankl Associates, it features a Tetris-like pattern of windows and balconies stacked diagonally on the building's facade. Completion is expected by fall 2016. Renderings show a Lexus and Aston Martin parked in front of the building, but it's doubtful that people renting apartments off the G train will be driving $150,000 cars.
The color of the facade for the 9-story (including basement) building has not been finalized, but the development team is leaning toward gray brick rather than red. The numbers have changed a bit since permits were filed last year. They originally indicated a 76-foot-wide retail space as well as a 46-unit count, and an eight-story height, YIMBY reported.
Eastern Union Funding
is financing the building brokered the deal for the $9.3 million construction loan that will finance the building.
