BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A new 119-unit apartment building could soon rise at the corner of a busy Bed-Stuy transportation hub.
Permits were filed this week for an eight-story building at 1134 Fulton St. near Franklin Avenue, designed by architect Karl Fischer.
The mixed-use building would feature 18,489 square-feet of commercial space and 89,352 square feet of residential space, with apartments starting on the third floor, as first reported by The Real Deal.
The building would be located across the street from the Franklin Avenue shuttle and A and C train station, and is expected to have an area for bike storage, a gym, a laundry room, and terrace space on the third floor. The plan includes 75 parking spaces on the second floor.
The first floor will be available for retail use, according to an application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings, which is still pending approval.
The current lot is home to businesses including Popeye’s, a convenience store, and an abandoned Key Food site. Employees of the businesses said they weren't aware of the plans.
The owner of the building declined to provide further details. No demolition permits were filed as of Thursday.
The permit, which hadn't been approved as of Thursday afternoon, detailed plans to develop a 50-unit mixed-use apartment building at 1520 Fulton St., with parking for 25 cars and 46,642 square feet of residential space.
