From Wyckoff Heights:
An enlargement application has been filed for 1002 Bushwick Ave, a large residential building constructed in 1887 as the home of Louis Bossert, a wealthy Bushwick businessman. Later used as the headquarters for the Arion Singing Society, and more recently “to host international volunteers for a local nonprofit,” the property was purchased by a Williamsburg developer in March of 2012 for $1,300,000.
This is the second enlargement for the building since 2012. The first, which was signed off in October, added 2,300 square feet and converted the building to multifamily residential use with 20 apartments. This new application proposes to add a fourth floor to the building, maxing out the FAR and increasing the number of dwelling units to 35.
Isn't it ironic that the people funneled into Bushwick to "save" it are actually destroying what charm it has left? This is a landmark-worthy building that's about to be crappified.
