Plan Revealed for Bed Stuy Church Conversion


We spotted this schematic on the fence at the church at 1010 Bedford Avenue, where work has restarted to convert the building to apartments. The former Evangelical Church will become six stories and house 36 apartments, according to alteration permits reissued in December.

The 54,933-square-foot project will also have 25,017 square feet of commercial space and 16,308 square feet of community space. Permits posted on the fence still call for “interior demolition, partial demolition and build out of the uses.”

A group of investors paid $4,100,000 for the building back in 2008, and interior demolition began two years later with plans filed by Karl Fischer. The current applicant of record is Hsin E. Chao of First Hec Engineering, who took over the project last year.

However, construction has been halted for now. A stop work order was issued in May and the building permit was revoked in June. What do you think of the plans?
