Huge Apartment Building to Replace Fox Savoy Theater in Crown Heights


A 10-story apartment building with a 114 units, a synagogue, retail on the ground floor, and underground parking for 30 cars is going to replace the 1926 Neo-Classical Fox Savoy Theater in Crown Heights. A plan exam was filed on the 19th, said BuzzBuzzHome.

Previous owner Charity Baptist Church sold the Thomas Lamb-designed building at 1515 Bedford Avenue for only $575,000 last year, as our own Montrose Morris was the first to report. A demolition permit was issued in October.

The new building will have 90,806 square feet of space. The architect is Issac & Stern Architects, and the developer is Realty Within Reach.
