A peculiar-looking residential building is getting ready to take shape in Bushwick and new renderings reveal what’s in store.
Developer Bawbeh United of Williamsburg has tapped Diego B. Aguilera Architects to design a seven-story building that will rise around a shuttered Crown Fried Chicken restaurant located near the corner of Broadway and Halsey streets, reports Brownstoner. The building will offer 32 apartments, likely rentals, that will average around 600 square feet in size and include private terraces. The building is set to also include a 16-car parking lot, a daycare, community facility, and outdoor space for recreational use.
Bawbeh purchased the property in May 2017 for a mere $500,000 and, per YIMBY, filed permits with the city’s Department of Buildings in September of last year. The building is replacing a neglected townhouse and a storefront church that were both recently demolished.
As for the Crown Fried Chicken, that too may be redeveloped into a residential building. The property was purchased in 2015 for $2 million and permits for a four-story building have been filed, but not yet approved.
No word yet on what prices will look like, but we’ll keep you posted.
