Six-Story, Eight-Unit Building Planned for 56th and 13th in Boro Park


Brooklyn-based Abraham Wieder has filed applications for a six-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 5601 13th Avenue, located on the corner of 56th Street in southern Borough Park, two blocks from the 55th Street stop on the D train, Reid Wilson reports for New York Yimby.

The structure will encompass 18,366 square feet, with 2,352 square feet to be used for retail space on the ground floor. An additional 2,962 square feet on the second floor will be for a community facility, and the residential units on floors three through six should average 1,116 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized apartments.

Brooklyn-based Asher Hershkowitz is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in February for the site’s existing two-story brick house. New York Yimby
