Cornell Realty Management has filed applications with the Department of City Planning seeking to rezone the development sites at 40 Crown Street and 931 Carroll Street, both of which are located in western Crown Heights. A 16-story, 390-unit mixed-use building is proposed at the 40 Crown Street site. That building would measure 400,000 square feet and include 15,000 square feet of retail. A 16-story, 128-unit residential building is proposed at the 391 Carroll Street site.
Since the buildings require a rezoning, with approval via the city’s Uniform Land Use Procedure (ULURP), affordable residential units are required. The developer would designate 25 percent of the units in each building as affordable, or 105 units and 35 units, respectively, The Real Deal reported. Both sites are occupied by low-rise warehouses and industrial structures. Demolition permits were filed in April for 931 Carroll Street.
