Development Watch: 1124 Bedford Ave


We received a tip that the former Bedford-Stuyvesant Community Mental Health Center, a brownstone building on the corner of Bedford and Gates Avenues in Bed-Stuy, is being demolished. A recent city document indicates a much larger development could replace the four-story corner building, in an area zoned for medium-density residential with mixed uses. Owner Afshin Dilmanian combined the property with four others to create a single, oddly-shaped lot that has additional frontage on Quincy Street, totaling roughly 25,000 square feet, or a half acre. The demolition permit was filed last month and already there’s a Stop Work Order for failure to remove glass prior to demolition. Anyone know any details about the plans? GMAP P*Shark DOB
