Two Big Buildings to Replace Smaller Ones at Lexington and Tompkins in Bed Stuy

A series of low-rise mixed-use brick buildings at the corner of Tompkins and Lexington avenues in Bed Stuy will soon be replaced by a seven-story apartment building and a four-story residential conversion from five existing buildings, according to plan exams filed last week. The seven-story build at 420 Lexington will have 25,676 square feet of residential space, outdoor parking for 23 cars and basement storage for 18 bicycles. And some of the apartments will have roof terraces.

Meanwhile, plans for 410 Lexington say that five two-story mixed-use buildings will be converted to a four-story residential building with 45 apartments. The new building will have 19,253 residential square feet, and as in the other building, several units will have open private roof terraces. No demolition permits have been filed yet.

Architect Nataliya Donskoy of ND Architecture and Design is designing the complex, and the developer is Iconic Group. The 15,000 square foot corner lot currently houses seven two-story mixed-use buildings and has a primary address at 281-291 Tompkins Avenue. Iconic snapped up the properties last January for $3,300,000, according to PropertyShark. Should be quite a change in density for this area. What do you think of the plan? GMAP
