ODA’s 608 Franklin Avenue, Crown Heights

In the past few years, real estate in Crown Heights – and especially its northeastern quadrant – has soared in popularity. Riots have given way to rapidly rising rents, and the neighborhood is hitting real estate milestones left and right. Just this year, we’ve seen a $1,000-a-foot condo on Classon Avenue, a new rental building at 341 Eastern Parkway with a Starbucks and studio rents starting in the $2,000s, and the opening of a beer hall and mini-food court called Berg’n (owned by Jonathan Butler, of Brownstoner/Smorgasborg/Brooklyn Flea fame).

And now, YIMBY’s got the first look at the next milestone for northwestern Crown Heights’s main drag, Franklin Avenue: an eight-story, 130,000-square foot apartment building designed by Eran Chen’s ODA Architecture, which will soon be rising at 608 Franklin Avenue, on the corner of Dean and Franklin.
