BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — As Bed-Stuy’s busy stretch of Tompkins Avenue attracts a slew of new businesses, residential development is also underway along the thoroughfare.
A six-story, 10-unit apartment building is set to rise near the corner of Willoughby Avenue, complete with enclosed parking on the first floor and bike storage, according to Department of Buildings filings.
Further down the block at 183 Tompkins Ave., a similar building with room for retail is planned from architect Charles Mallea.
Mallea is also designing a 35-unit residence on the avenue from Vasco Ventures dubbed “Hancock Manor,” along with a larger 44-unit project on the corner of Halsey Street that replaces the old Weinstein hardware store.
