An anonymous LLC has filed permits for a six-story mixed-use building at 950 55th Street, in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The site is nine blocks away from the Fort Hamilton Parkway Subway station, serviced by the N, Q, and W trains. Slightly further away is the 55th Street station, serviced by the D train. The area has a vibrant Asian community, with dozens of busy restaurants and markets along the nearby 8th Avenue corridor.
The 55-foot tall structure will yield 17,300 square feet, with 5,400 square feet dedicated to medical facilities, and 11,900 square feet for residential use. The project will create 15 units on floors two through five, with an average size of 793 square feet, which could either mean rentals or condominiums.
The residential and community facility lobbies will be in the basement, and the ambulatory/healthcare portions will take up the cellar and first floors.
HPL Engineering will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits for the existing two-story structure were filed in mid-September of this year.
