Two Four-Story Buildings Rise on Franklin Avenue in Bed Stuy


Two connected four-story buildings are rising on Franklin Avenue near Willoughby Avenue in Bed Stuy. Each of the buildings at 199 and 201 Franklin Avenue will have three units spread across 13,164 square feet, according to permits filed two years ago. There will be a duplex and two floor-through apartments in each building.

One building will have a garage with space for one car and the other will have an elevator, according to the Schedule A. The ground floor appears to be the “cellar.” We found a schematic on the construction fence, pictured after the jump, but the buildings don’t seem to match.

The architect is Asher Hershkowitz, and permits list the owner as Fishel Schlesinger of Franklin Equities LLC. The two former vacant lots last changed hands for a combined $125,000 in 2012, according to public records. GMAP
