BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A discount store at Fulton and Bedford avenues in Bed-Stuy could make way for an eight-story mixed retail and residential building, according to plans filed this week with the Department of Buildings.
The owner of 1190 Fulton St., which is currently home to M&S Bargain Hunters, filed plans on Monday for the new 80-foot structure, which would include 30 apartments or condos and include a sizeable 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, records show.
So far no demolition permit has been filed for the site, and details about the new building are scarce, but it’s not the first time the developer — a Crown Heights firm called Bawabeh Brothers — has targeted Bed-Stuy for redevelopment.
Bawabeh Brothers owns a handful of retail storefronts along Fulton Street, including a lot at 1104 Fulton St., between Franklin Avenue and Claver Place, where the firm demolished a Goodwill to make way for a six-story mixed-use building, where construction is currently underway, records show.
A representative of Bawabeh Brothers did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and an employee of M&S Bargain Hunters declined to comment.
