Bed Stuy, Cool Listings

This unique Bed-Stuy cottage is full of surprises right from the start. The cast-iron railings lend way to a New Orleans-style balcony, made even more inviting with flower boxes and hanging planters. The large metal double doors on the first floor were salvaged from the Domino Sugar Factory, and there are historic cast-iron supports and wooden ceiling beams inside. And with the efficient two-story layout, the $950,000 asking price is just right.

This Bed-Stuy townhouse 671 Hancock Street has a lot going for it. First, it’s got tons of character, including rustic brick walls and exposed ceiling beams. Second, it’s a two-family with an owner’s duplex and a garden rental. And third, the $1,650,000 price makes it a great investment for all that you’re getting.

Days after filing building permits for 1215 Fulton Street in Bed-Stuy—the site of the former Slave Theatre—London-based co-living startup The Collective has announced it will be partnering with renowned Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto on the design, his first in New York. The 10-story structure will span over 240,000 square feet and be comprised of three buildings connected by an expansive “ground-floor hub” designed to feel like “an extension of the street.” The project aims to create “a new idea of how a community can come together in a building,” as the architects explained in a design statement.

London-based communal living company The Collective filed a building permit application last week for a planned development on the site of the former Slave Theater in Bed-Stuy, which the company bought earlier this year for $32.5 million. As Brownstoner first reported, the application is for a 10-story, roughly 161,000-square-foot structure that will comprise residential units, a hotel, and community space. Ismael Leyva Architects will lead the project, which is expected to include 136 apartments, 222 hotel rooms, underground parking, a restaurant, a public courtyard, spa lounges, and other amenities. The finished building is expected to open in 2022.

This charming 20-foot wide Victorian home at 47 Chauncey Street in Bed-Stuy is not only part of the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District—it’s one of the four oldest remaining rowhouses in the district, dating back to circa 1870. Last year, the two-bedroom home was sold in a pretty run-down state and has since undergone a gut renovation that brought modern finishes and conveniences to the historic property. It’s now on the market for $1.599 million.
