Harel Edrey, doing business as Brooklyn-based EDG Development, has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 225 14th Street, in southern Park Slope, located four blocks north of the Prospect Avenue stop on the R train. The new building will measure 6,104 square feet in total and the residential units should average a spacious 1,329 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The first floor will contain the residential lobby and a single apartment. The second floor will have a full-floor apartment, and the third apartment will span the third and fourth floors. Issac & Stern Architects is the architect of record. A small two-story, 20-foot-wide townhouse must first be demolished.
