Building Boom for Bushwick?


    The Wyckoff Heights blog noted a jump in applications for new buildings and alterations in Bushwick in the first quarter of this year. If the Department of Buildings were to approve every one, about 200 new units of housing would come on the market. For some perspective, that’s between half to one-third the number of units applied for in the same period in Williamsburg and Greennpoint combined. (Right now, Williamsburg has the largest number of construction sites in Brooklyn.) The blog created a series of maps showing where the new builds would be located and how many apartments in each one. The biggest area of activity is not the loft area where Roberta’s is located, but an area the blog calls “Bushwick West,” south of Flushing and East of Broadway. Click through to the original story to see more maps.
