Another day, another new building in Crown Heights. Today’s crop of filings brought plans for a five-story, 16-unit development at 701 Prospect Place, between Bedford and Rogers Avenues.
Western Crown Heights is no stranger to new construction. The latest project set to rise in the central Brooklyn neighborhood is coming to 786 Park Place, between Rogers and Nostrand avenues. And YIMBY has a rendering of the development, which will fill a vacant lot on a block lined with four-story, prewar walkups.
Brooklyn-based property owner Yidel Kohn has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 141 Utica Avenue and 1184 St. Marks Avenue, in eastern Crown Heights.

The ground-floor apartments will also feature space in the cellar. Sander Weiss’s Brooklyn-based Gelu Durus Musica is the architect of record. The 5,180-square-foot corner lot is currently vacant. The Utica Avenue stop on the A/C trains is seven blocks away.
Property owner David Azour, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1666 Dean Street, in eastern Crown Heights.

Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,680-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits were recently on Monday. The Utica Avenue stop on the A/C trains is five blocks north.
It’s been a year and a half since Cornell Realty filed plans for a massive four-building, 208-unit development at 902 Franklin Avenue in southern Crown Heights. Now, Cornell has nearly finished demolishing the series of squat industrial buildings on the site between Crown and Montgomery streets, which used to be a commercial laundry business.
