Walls Rising at Site of Big Rental Building on Franklin in Bed Stuy


Two stories of concrete-block wall have risen in places at a large apartment building going up at 168 Franklin Avenue in Bed Stuy, we saw when we stopped by last week.

A rendering on the fence shows a relatively uniform five story concrete, brick and glass building. It’s going into a formerly vacant lot that spans 168 to 180 Franklin Avenue. The building will have 118 luxury rental units over 80,000 square feet, according to permits granted in March and the developer’s web site. There will also be a copy center and parking for 59 cars in the building. Completion is expected in the fourth quarter of this year.

Issac and Stern Architects is the architect of record. Developer Adam America bought the property for $8,496,882 in September of 2011.
