Just a month after plans were announced for the construction of a 51-unit residential building in Brooklyn's controversial Broadway Triangle area, permits have been filed for another residential building. This time it's a six-story building with 23 apartments located at 54 Throop Avenue, NY YIMBY reports.
The new building is a likely addition to another six-story residential building next door at 56 Throop Avenue, plans for which were announced last month. Both buildings are being developed by Solomon Schwimmer.
This new building features just over 30,000 square feet of space. The first and second floors will be occupied by a duplex and two half floor apartments, according to the building permits. The third floor will have two apartments. And the floors above that will have six apartments each. At 56 Throop next door, plans call for the construction of eight apartments in total.
Both buildings will replace a garage and smoked fish factory that currently sit side by side at the property. Asher Hershkowitz is listed as the architect on the project. Broadway Triangle sits right between Bed-Stuy, Williamsburg and Bushwick and has been a contentious piece of real estate in recent years for with different community groups fighting for the rights to the land.
