In October of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned six-story, 40-unit multi-use commercial building at 5521 Eighth Avenue, on the corner of 56th Street in Sunset Park, located seven blocks north of the N train’s stop on Eighth Avenue. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports foundation work is now underway on the 81,569 square-foot project, which will include 36 medical offices and four retail units. The retail space will measure 13,003 square feet in total and will span the ground floor and a mezzanine level. The medical offices will begin on the second floor and should average 1,180 square feet apiece. Flushing-based Andy Wong filed documents with the Attorney General’s office in January, which indicated the project is being valued at $76.3 million. Raymond Chan is designing and completion in 2017 seems likely.
