Isaac and Stern Architects Have Two Big Projects Planned for Bed Stuy

So I stumbled across this construction site on the corner of Dekalb and Nostrand. The Department of Buildings approved a new building application this month for seven stories, 28 units and 25,215 total square feet. Construction should last through the spring of next year. The architect, Isaac and Stern, have fancy renderings up at their website:

Looking through the architect’s website, I also found a rendering for a massive project they are designing right on the border of Bed Stuy and Clinton Hill. This one is at 168-184 Franklin Avenue, on the corner of Willoughby:

The DOB issued a new building permit for this last month. It will be a five-story building with 118 units, 104,000 square feet, and a garage at the first floor. I like this design more than the one proposed for 627 Dekalb Avenue, which is a little more bland. Do you have a preference?

  1. My preference is that developers enriching themselves need to do more to alleviate NYC’s school overcrowding crisis–especially in Bklyn. If the city approves these large projects to go up, citizens should demand that schools are built to accomodate the influx of people into these “new” neighborhoods. The city increasing its tax base does little to help those of us who are getting shut out of schools.
