Matt Schneider, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, five-unit residential building at 399 Prospect Place, in the northwestern corner of Crown Heights. The project – located six blocks north of the Eastern Parkway-Brooklyn Museum stop on the 2 and 3 trains – will measure 5,380 square feet in total. The full-floor units will average 1,076 square feet, which means condos are likely. The unit on the fifth floor will also include a sixth-floor penthouse, according to the Schedule A. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in November to knock down the existing two-story, four-unit apartment building.
Prospect Place between New York and Brooklyn Avenues is set to receive a new apartment building, but not before at least one more meeting of the Landmarks Preservation Commission. At its session last Tuesday, the LPC did not approve the proposed four-story plus penthouse structure at 906 Prospect Place. That’s in the Crown Heights North Historic District II. At issue were certain details and articulation along with the height of rooftop mechanical elements.
Ofer Prager has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1528 Bergen Street, in eastern Crown Heights, six blocks south of the A and C trains’ stop at Utica Avenue. The building will measure 6,609 square feet in total, which means units will average 826 square feet apiece. One of the units on the fourth floor will also include a fifth-floor penthouse, according to the Schedule A. Forest Hills-based Arc Architecture + Design Studio is the architect of record, and permits were filed in October to demolish an existing single-story house. This isn’t the day’s first news from Ofer Prager, as another project is planned at 1545 Bergen Street.
Brooklyn-based Ofer Prager has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1545 Bergen Street, in eastern Crown Heights. That’s five blocks south of the A and C trains’ stop at Utica Avenue. The building will measure 5,838 square feet in total, which means units will average 730 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. One of the fourth-floor units will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse. Arc Architecture + Design Studio is the architect of record. A recessed two-story house must first be demolished.
In the last few days of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications to construct a four-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 681 Franklin Avenue, in northwestern Crown Heights, six blocks from the Franklin Avenue stop on the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. Now, Curbed and DNAinfo have renderings for various versions of the project. The building will actually appear as six stories and stand 60 feet tall, thanks to two mezzanine levels which weren’t included in the previous floor count. The building will also include 2,134 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
