Bed Stuy’s Space-Age Apartment Building Takes Shape on Dekalb


The Bed Stuy building with a futuristic porthole and center atrium is three stories high so far at 785 Dekalb Avenue. The domed apartment development will have 70 units, 36 bike parking spots and 35 subterranean parking spots, as we reported in April.

In case you’ve forgotten, the building’s crazy design looks a bit like a space-age city hall for sea monkeys where the miniskirted creatures might cavort in its slanted portholes and on its angled balconies. We can already see the rounded part of the facade and a cutout for the atrium.

The developer is SSJ Development, who paid $2,700,000 for 15,000-square-foot lot eight years ago. Click through the jump to see another photo.
