Bed-Stuy Getting a Big Hot Karl at Bedford and Gates

February 18th, 2009 · No Comments

It took us a while to figure this one out after we came across the building above at Bedford and Gates Avenues, which is rising pretty quickly. The official address listed on the site is 315 Gates Ave, which turns up nothing with the Department of Buildings. But search 313 Gates, and bingo, you find the Great One, our very own Hot Karl Fischer. Now, to us, this is an exciting discovery. Not unlike finding out that you invested your life savings with The Ponz, Bernard Maddoff. And our Karl is giving Bed-Stuy a Big Hot One. It’ll be six stories tall and have 67 apartments. Condos or rentals? You decide. We know what our conclusion is, and it’s not the former. It breaks our hearts that there is no rendering, as His Hotness stopped updating his website a long time ago. If anyone feels like slapping the Hot Karl rendering on us, we’ll give you a one-year free subscription to GL. Operators are standing by, as always, at thegowanuslounge (at) gmail (dot) com.
