BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Development is booming on one of Bed-Stuy’s busiest thoroughfares, with at least 11 new buildings planned for Fulton Street.

Work has already begun at sites like the new Planet Fitness near Nostrand Avenue, or permits have been filed for numerous mixed-use structures such as the eight-story, 119-unit apartment building on the corner of Franklin Avenue.

Rezoning of southern Bed-Stuy in 2007 allowed for an overhaul of the commercial strip.

The changes permitted buildings up to ten stories tall on Fulton Street and required active ground floor usage.

It also sought to boost residential growth and bring affordable housing along the retail and transit corridor, according to the Department of City Planning.

Two years after the rezoning, the city formed the Bedford-Stuyvesant Gateway Business Improvement District, which stretches along Fulton from Classon to Troy avenues and across Nostrand from Halsey Street to Atlantic Avenue.

National brands like Foot Locker and Children’s Place can be found on the strip, along with mom and pop shops and small fast-food joints.

With thousands of new residents expected in Brooklyn in coming years, the developments provide the opportunity for increased retail diversity, according to Michael Lambert, executive director of the BID.

“The projects proposed along the Fulton Street corridor allow us to develop a stretch that many people will see not only as a great place if you live in the neighborhood, but as a great destination spot,” Lambert said.

1068 Fulton St.

An eight-story, mixed-use building with 41 apartments is planned with nearly 5,000 square feet of commercial space. Demolition applications were submitted in October 2014 for the existing four-story and one-story buildings on the site, according to the Department of Buildings.

The plan exam for the new building was rejected in May due to incomplete applications, according to the Department of Buildings.

1104 Fulton St.

The Goodwill Store and donation center near Franklin Avenue closed in June after new plans were filed to construct a five-story replacement for the one-story building. The plan was disapproved in January for being incomplete, according to the DOB.

The application details a total of 43,224 square feet, with more than 33,000 dedicated to community facilities. Initial plans called for health care centers on the second and third floors, and a school on the top two levels.

1134 Fulton St.

A 119-unit apartment building could soon rise at the corner of Fulton Street and Franklin Avenue, across from the A and C trains and the Franklin Avenue shuttle.

Permits call for an eight-story building from architect Karl Fischer, complete with bike storage, a gym, a laundry room, terraces, and 75 parking spaces. The plan was disapproved on June 22 for an incomplete application, according to the DOB.

An application for demolition was filed a month later and is awaiting a plan exam. The site is currently home to businesses including Popeye’s, a convenience store, and an abandoned Key Food.

1245 Fulton St.

Clothing store Pretty Girl shuttered in January 2014 to make way for a Planet Fitness. Construction is still ongoing as of July 28, but signs on the exterior hint that locals can soon sign up for membership.

Original reports detailed a three-floor, 22,000-square-foot gym, but approved permits show a one-story building with 7,836 square feet of space.

1320 Fulton St.

More apartments are underway at 1320 Fulton St., with 57 units planned at a 10-story mixed-use project. There’s more than 14,000 square feet of retail space expected and enclosed parking for 29 cars.

1377 Fulton St.

Also known as 957 Marcy Ave., construction has started for a new TD Bank at the former Burger King site. The bank will be located across from Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Restoration Corporation and on the corner of Marcy Plaza.

1413 Fulton St.

Another gym is set to rise further along Fulton Street. A Blink Fitness is under construction at the former Bedford Stuyvesant Family Health Center location. The building will be three stories tall and have space for six stores, according to permits. Commercial space totals 9,446 square feet, and the gym will have approximately 15,000 square feet, records show.

1430 Fulton St.

A Karl Fischer-designed apartment building is expected to replace the former Lab/Electric Warehouse. The current structure is recognizable along Fulton Street for its colorful mural.

Situated near Tompkins Avenue, the new building will be seven stories tall with 64 units and enclosed parking for 49 cars, according to the application. Permits were issued on June 15, and a stop work order exists on the property as of July 28 for sprinkler removal without a permit.

The proposed development is next to the site of July’s building collapse at 1438 Fulton St. and is owned by the same group, Fulton Street Holdings LLC., according to city records.

1510 Fulton St.

Permits are filed for a four-story, mixed-use building from Flushing-based architect Sung Ho Chin, with seven apartments and 415 square feet of commercial space. The plan was disapproved in early July for being incomplete, according to the DOB. An application for demolition was processed on July 16 for the existing one-story structure, and is awaiting a plan exam.

1516 Fulton St.

An expansion of an existing three-story structure is in the works for 1516 Fulton St., with plans calling for an additional five stories for the mixed-use building.

Retail would remain on the ground floor, per the application. There are currently four units on site, and proposals ask for 23 apartments and an additional 10,000 square feet of space.

1520 Fulton St.

Next door to 1516 Fulton St. near Throop Avenue, a 10-story building from HELLOliving is planned for the old Sunoco gas station, according to permits filed in May. The application calls for a 50-unit mixed-use apartment building with parking for 25 cars and 9,163 square feet of commercial space. 

Demolition plans were filed in April and are awaiting plan exam. The job filing for the new building was disapproved in June due to incomplete applications, according to the DOB.
