A recent zoning amendment proposal for 41 Summit Street could result in the development of a new residential property in a quiet corner of Brooklyn known as the Columbia Street Waterfront District. As one of Brooklyn’s smallest neighborhoods, the area has not witnessed any major new developments compared to the surrounding Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, and Cobble Hill communities.
A proposal has been submitted to the city for a re-zoning at 55-63 Summit Street, in Brooklyn’s Columbia Waterfront District, accompanied by the first renderings of what that could ultimately yield. The affected area is currently classified as M1-1, and the proposal would change that to R6B.
Brooklyn-based development and design firm Barrett Design is seeking to obtain approval from the Department of Buildings to build two three-story, single-family townhouses at 96-98 Degraw Street, in the Columbia Street Waterfront District, located 12 blocks from the Bergen Street stop on the F and G trains. Each will measure 3,100 square feet and will contain a two-car parking garage on the ground floor. Both will also sport rooftop terraces. The townhouses will rise on a vacant 35-foot-wide, 3,500-square-foot lot currently being used as a parking lot. The property is currently located within a manufacturing district, which may be the reason the new buildings applications haven’t been approved.
