Ofer Prager, doing business as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a seven-story, 13-unit mixed-use building at 645 Fifth Avenue, in South Slope, located four blocks from the Prospect Avenue stop on the R train. The structure will measure 15,005 square feet in total and will include 1,100 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Residential units would begin on the second floor and average 1,070 square feet apiece, which means condominiums may be in the works. The seventh floor will also feature a common rooftop recreation space. Forest Hills-based ARC Architecture + Design Studio is the architect of record. The two existing mixed-use buildings at 643-645 Fifth Avenue were filed for demolition in November.
