Permits have been filed for a new 30-story residential building at 1625 Shore Parkway, in the South Brooklyn neighborhood of Bensonhurst. The site is between Belt Parkway and Cropsey Avenue, and about three blocks away from Bensonhurst Park. The closest subway station, Bay Parkway, sits three avenues away and is serviced by the D train. The historically Italian neighborhood has a fabric more akin to suburban sprawl, featuring many big-box shopping options. The new structure will be located near Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center, a commercial strip with stores including BJ’s Wholesale, Best Buy, and Modell’s Sporting Goods.
Shore Towers Brooklyn, an LLC by developer LandPex, is listed as the owner.
David West of Hill West Architects is designing the 278,344 square foot building, which includes a community space, 243 units, and 165 enclosed parking spaces. The 30-story structure will rise 326 feet on the through-lot, and overlooks a 30-foot yard in the rear. Units will average 1,145 square feet apiece, likely translating into condos.
The project should be a welcome addition in a neighborhood that seldom sees supplemental new housing inventory. LandPex is known for developing residential projects with a mix of affordable and high-end rental units.
No completion date for the project has been announced yet.
