Brooklyn: Three apartment complex developments underway
At a General Meeting of the Brooklyn Action Corps (BAC) neighborhood association late last year, developer Aleksandar "Sasha" Kirovski, Principal at The Bindery (3115) LLC, displayed initial architectural design plans for a project he plans to begin this year. He said the new 10,542-square-foot project will consist of two three-story buildings, with a courtyard between.
The eastern building, on Cora Street, will have six two-bedroom apartments, six one-bedroom apartments, and four studio apartments, with about 12 parking spaces provided. The western building, along Milwaukie Avenue, will have three retail spaces on the ground floor, four offices on the second floor, and four studio apartments on the third floor.
Meantime, after demolishing a one-story home at 3539 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue, Deform Northwest in Brooklyn is currently constructing a new mixed-use apartment building in its place. The new three-story structure will have sixteen units above a single ground floor retail space, with bike storage provided, but no extra parking. The living spaces are planned to be nine one-bedroom units and seven studio apartments.
Yet another developer has plans for a new, four-story, 44-unit apartment building at the corner of S.E. Pardee Street and Milwaukie Avenue, to be built where, last year, a house and accessory structure at 4540 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue were purchased by the Yoshida Group and then demolished. The lot, which has been re-assigned the address "1415 S.E. Pardee Street", has been leveled and fenced off, but construction has yet to begin.Also at that monthly BAC meeting, neighbors learned about landlord/tenant legal regulations, and problems faced by "house-less" people. They also met new Brooklyn Pharmacy owner Pat Hubbell, and heard from yet another developer who is planning two new mixed-use apartment buildings in the neighborhood.
And, Melaney Dittler revealed that the recently-revived Greater Brooklyn Business Association is temporarily on hiatus, but has applied for a grant from Venture Portland.
