New building applications were filed yesterday for a seven-story apartment building with ground floor retail at 701 Washington Avenue, on the eastern, Crown Heights side of the commercial thoroughfare.
Southern Crown Heights isn’t as thick with new construction as the area north of Eastern Parkway, but new apartments are in the works on the low-slung blocks around Empire Boulevard. Last week YIMBY noticed new building applications for a seven-story residential development at 264 Sullivan Place, between Rogers and Nostrand Avenues.
Midtown-based Pinnacle Group is planning to convert the six-story, 46-unit rental apartment building at 382-390 Eastern Parkway, in southwestern Crown Heights, into 45 condominiums. Located a block from the Franklin Avenue stop on the 2/3/4/5 trains, the conversion project received approval from the state’s Attorney General’s office last month, The Real Deal reports. The 45 condos are being valued at $32.7 million all together. The apartments will be individually renovated and Pinnacle is doing so on a non-eviction basis. The structure measures 44,580 square feet, so units should average 990 square feet apiece. Long Island City-based Atelier New York Architecture is the architect of record.
Property owner Alma Realty Corp. has filed applications to convert the ground and second floors of the 14-story, 120-unit mixed-use building at 467-475 St. Marks Avenue, in western Crown Heights, located six blocks south of the Franklin Avenue stop on the C train. According to DNAinfo, the owners will be converting all of the vacant medical space to 13 residential units. The entire property has 17,218 square feet of community space for medical facilities, although the methadone clinic on the Bergen Street side of the property will remain. Once the Department of Buildings approves the filings, the conversion project should proceed quickly. Flushing-based Panagis Georgopoulos is the architect of record.
Bawabeh Brothers has filed applications for a single-story, 8,690 square-foot commercial-retail building at 71 Schenectady Avenue, in eastern Crown Heights, located four blocks from the Utica Avenue stop on the A and C trains. The 16-foot-tall structure will replace a vacant 62-foot-wide swath of land, and the leasable retail space will total 4,345 square feet. The retail tenant or tenants will also have access to storage space in the cellar. Brooklyn-based Felix Pustylnik is the applicant of record.
