Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 401 Chester Street in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Located between Livonia Avenue and Riverdale Avenue, the lot is one block from the Rockaway Avenue subway station, serviced by the 3 train. Dunn Development Corp., listed as the owner behind the applications, is also responsible for the Bergen Saratoga Apartments, an 80-unit affordable and supportive housing building in the same neighborhood.
The proposed 87-foot-tall development will yield 117,331 square feet, with 93,718 square feet designated for residential space and 5,426 square feet for community facility space. The building will have 157 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 596 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar, a 34-foot-long rear yard, and 14 enclosed parking spaces.
SLCE Architects is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
