Music studio wins variance

Former metal manufacturing plant will be converted into a music studio. The owner of 28 Quincy Street in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn proposed to convert a one-story warehouse into a private-use music studio with two newly-constructed, second-story residential units. Located on a 5,747-square-foot lot between Classon Avenue and Downing Street, the warehouse has most recently served as storage; it previously served as a garage and a metal manufacturing plant. The owner was permitted as-of-right to construct the second-story residential units, but required BSA approval to change from warehouse to studio use. The owner stated that the studio would be soundproofed and that no structural alterations would be made to the foundations or load bearing walls.

BSA approved after the owner agreed to remove graffiti from the building within 48 hours and limit the studio’s signage to a single two-by- three-foot sign.
