It might not look like much right now, but the stage is set for a Karl Fischer-designed building with affordable units and and a grocery store to rise at 1134 Fulton Street in Bed Stuy.
The corner lot is the former site of a shuttered Key Foods. It was demolished last year.
A recent visit revealed the site has been cleared. A pile driving machine was at work, presumably on the foundation.
Plans call for an 11-story building with 189 units, as we’ve reported. The grocery store in the new building will be part of the city’s FRESH program, which attempts to bring food accessibility and increased options to New York City residents.
The property, which spans 1134-1152 Fulton Street near Franklin, was purchased by an LLC in 2015 for $19 million. The developer is Joseph Brunner. Architect Karl Fischer is prolific throughout Brooklyn, especially in Williamsburg.
About four blocks away, at 410 Tompkins Avenue, another apartment building designed by Fischer + Makooi with a FRESH grocery on the ground floor is planned.
