A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential project at 573 Classon Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill. The new building will measure 4,488 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 892 square feet apiece. Based on size, the apartments could either be rentals or condominiums. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record. The 22-foot-wide, 1,792-square-foot lot is vacant. The Franklin Avenue-Fulton Street stop on the C train and Franklin Avenue Shuttle is around the block.
St. Mary’s Episcopal Church has filed applications for a 16-story, 142-unit mixed-use building at 230 Classon Avenue, located on the corner of Willoughby Avenue in Clinton Hill. The project will encompass 153,606 square feet and rise 163 feet above street level. The ground through third floors will contain 25,264 square feet of space for the church, which will include a library, offices, meeting rooms, a privy, a coffee bar, among other spaces, The Real Deal reported. The residential units above should average 685 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will also be a 93-car garage on the ground and cellar levels. DXA Studio is the architect of record. The existing three-story rectory must first be demolished. The Classon Avenue stop on the G train is three blocks away.
A deteriorating Brooklyn residential building could finally meet its end in the near future. Last Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission heard a proposal to demolish the three-story structure at 476 Washington Avenue, in Clinton Hill. However, the proposal for its replacement was not met with the commissioners’ approval.
In 2008, non-profit Pratt Area Community Council and BFC Partners finished construction on a six-story, 48-unit affordable building at 15 Quincy Street in Clinton Hill. Now a charter school may replace the low-income development between Classon and Grand Avenues, right next to the border with Bed-Stuy.
Since it stood two stories in height in April, the eight-story, 143-unit mixed-use building under development at 504 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Clinton Hill, has topped out. The latest photo comes via prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the project grew slightly compared to filings retrieved for YIMBY’s April update. The structure now encompasses 125,585 square feet and has gained two units (up from 141). The ground floor will host 20,304 square feet of retail space, while the floors above will contain rental apartments, averaging 736 square feet apiece. Twenty-eight of them will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Silverstone Property Group and Madison Capital Realty are the developers. HTO Architects is behind the architecture and completion is scheduled for 2017.
