A Gene Kaufman-designed building is coming to 100 Bogart Street in Bushwick, and in a plot twist, it won’t have apartments.
Brownstoner first spotted the permits filed last month for a six-story, 46,900-square-foot development with artist studios and ground-floor retail. The lot at the corner of Johnson Avenue and Bogart Street is currently home to a warehouse. Demolition permits have yet to be filed for the existing structure.
IBK Construction acquired the property for $3.472 million in February 2013, according to public records.
A recent lease listing for the the development’s 4,000-square-foot retail space notes the location at a “rare warehouse conversion in one of Brooklyn’s hippest neighborhoods.” The listing also suggests that the retail unit, with 22-foot-tall ceilings, would be “ideal for galleries, studios, and light production facilities.”
