It’s been quiet recently at the partially demolished Fox Savoy Theater in Crown Heights, where the DOB issued a full stop work order in late February. The BEST squad (Building Enforcement Safety Team) cited the project at 1515 Bedford Avenue for failing to brace part of the building. The stop work order was partially rescinded so that workers could install the bracing, but a partial stop work order is still in effect.
Once workers finish knocking down the grand old movie theater, a 10-story, 114-unit apartment building will rise in its place. The 90,806-square-foot development will include ground floor community space for a synagogue, bike storage, 30 underground parking spots, laundry and a roof deck, according to a building application that was disapproved in January.
The architect is Issac & Stern, who posted this rendering on their website. And the developer is Realty Within Reach, which manages several other Crown Heights buildings and is developing affordable housing nearby in Bed Stuy.
