Queens-based Michael Kang Architect has revealed the first renderings of 2300 Cropsey Avenue in Bath Beach, Brooklyn. Located at one of the southern-most points of the borough, the new building will rise 24 stories and contain a mix of 154 condominium units, a community facility, and a large parking structure designed to accommodate 270 vehicles.

Amenities are expected to include a bike room, an open-air roof deck above the podium levels, and fitness facilities.

The building replaces an abandoned structure that once functioned as a nursing home for senior citizens. This iteration of the development is slightly smaller than the original permits filed in 2014, which called for a 170-unit building and a 337-vehicle parking garage. While interior components have been altered, the project team does not seem to have changed.

W&L Group, the developer responsible for the new residential building, has not yet confirmed an anticipated date of completion.

  1. Are you sure this is current? Hill West is working on a very similar project either at this location or next door.

  2. I’ll never understand how we ended up where it is more profitable to leave a property unused for over 15 years–the Haym Salomon Home moved to a new building next door in the early 00s–rather than building on it so that it produces revenue. I understand that developers seek to maximize long-term profits and paper losses can be used to offset profits for tax purposes, but the fact that we as a society have placed economic incentives on leaving properties empty, whether it is a single storefront or a large development lot, is puzzling. It’s one thing when a property is left empty or serves as a parking lot for decades as the owners await rezoning as happened along Sixth Avenue north of 23rd Street or the old Madison Square Garden site on 8th Avenue before Wordlwide Plaza was built. The difference between as of right construction under existing zoning and what was eventually allowed was signicant. That just doesn’t seem the case here on Cropsey. A similarly sized condo could have been built in 2004 and been producing value and tax revenue for 15 years.

  3. Maybe the owners of the Haym-Solomon property wanted to hold out for more money as is their right. A very safe area of Brooklyn. Residents of 2300 Cropsey will have nice views of Lower NY Bay and the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.

  4. HW project is on the opposite side of the nursing home (to the right).

  5. Could be twice as tall.
