Filings for new buildings in Flatbush seem to have slowed down over the last few months, probably thanks to confusion about the defunct-but-possibly-not 421-a tax abatement. The tax break propped up market-rate development throughout the central Brooklyn neighborhood, and without it, many builders seem to be delaying construction.

Five-Story, 33,300-Square-Foot Mixed-Use Commercial Project Filed at 1020 Rogers Avenue, Flatbush

Property owner Oleg Krasnitsky, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, 33,320-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 1020 Rogers Avenue, in Flatbush. The ground floor will contain commercial-retail and community facility space, which will be followed by medical offices on the second floor, and a daycare facility on the third through fifth floors. Amenities will include a 13-car parking garage in the cellar and storage for four bikes. Igor Zaslavskiy’s Brooklyn-based Zproekt is the architect of record. The development assemblage is not clearly outlined in the permits, but it’s known for sure the single-story building along Rogers Avenue will have to be demolished. The Beverly Road stop on the 2 and 5 trains is four blocks away.

Four-Story, 10-Unit Residential Building Planned at 481 East 21st Street, Flatbush

Property owner Shaya Labin, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 481 East 21st Street, in Flatbush. The project will measure 10,970 square feet and its residential units should average 933 square feet apiece, which means either condominiums or rentals could be in the works. Some of the apartments will also feature space either in the cellar or on an upper penthouse level. Michael Avramides’s Midtown East-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 3,200-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-and-a-half-story house. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Cortelyou Road stop on the Q train is seven blocks away.

Permits Filed: 100 Lenox Road, Flatbush

Recently, green construction walls went up around an iconic detached house at the corner of Bedford Avenue and Lenox Road in Flatbush. Although it’s not the most beautiful house in the neighborhood, the two-and-a-half story home is one of several that lends an air of dignity to this stretch of Bedford in Prospect Lefferts Gardens and northern Flatbush. Now, like many standalone houses in the neighborhood, it will bite the dust for an apartment building. Plans were filed last week to erect a seven-story apartment building there at 100 Lenox Road, a few blocks southeast of Prospect Park.
