Another development is rising along a rapidly transforming stretch of Fulton Street in Bed Stuy.
This one is currently growing at 1190 Fulton Street, at the corner of Bedford Avenue. Presently, only four of the eventual eight stories of the building have been constructed. It takes the space previously occupied by a one-story building that housed Bargain Hunters, which was demolished in 2018.
S. Wieder Architects is the firm behind the design (Carlo Liburdi, an architect and coffee-shop owner from Detroit, is the applicant of record on building permits). Renderings show two floors dominated by floor-to-ceiling windows, which will be occupied by retail. The six floors above will house the residences, of which there are 30, according to building permits.
Those residences, according to a story in Crain’s, have been leased by Quarters, a German co-living company. Directly across the street at 1215 Fulton Street, the site of the now-demolished Slave Theater, London co-living firm The Collective is planning a combination hotel-apartments-restaurant-community space. How or whether the pandemic might affect co-living in Brooklyn remains to be seen.
Bawabeh Brothers, also known as Bawabeh Realty Holdings, are the longtime owners of the property. They own a number of properties in Brooklyn, including one a few blocks away at 1104 Fulton Street, the former home of a Goodwill store that was demolished in 2015 to make way for the current six-story home of Brooklyn Prospect Clinton Hill charter school.
