The plot (of land) thickens!
Prolific developer Boaz Gilad cast ripples across the blogosphere with his residential conversion of an old church at 991 Eastern Parkway, first reported by Brownstoner.
Now, it appears that Gilad’s Brookland Capital is planning a new building adjacent to the conversion, making one block-through development. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects, the project will have a total of 27 apartments, with frontage on Eastern Parkway and Lincoln Place.
Permits filed for 991 Eastern Parkway in November 2013 call for an expansion of the existing structure from three stories to six stories. The 60-foot-tall conversion would have 17 apartments. Here’s a rendering of the design, which fuses the Old Romanesque Revival-style church with something more modern:

Meanwhile, 1238 Lincoln Place is primed for a new four-story, 10-unit building, according to the plan exam application filed February 12th. The 45-foot-tall project, also designed by Issac & Stern, will measure 6,684 square feet.
The two lots between Troy and Schenectady avenues were marketed together, with a total buildable square footage of 28,668, according to the TerraCRG listing. Gilad bought both parcels for $2.1 million in May 2013.
Brookland’s site says that the Crown Heights development will have 40 units, but maybe they’re confused. After all, the firm has more than 40 projects active in Brooklyn, according to Brownstoner. The developer bought a stalled project at 691 Marcy Avenue last week, and it plans to lay down an eight-story building with 41 condominiums at the vacant Bed-Stuy lot.
