After protesters surrounded the unfinished tower at 626 Flatbush last week to rally against the 421-a tax abatement, YIMBY stopped by to check out the construction progress on Prospect-Lefferts Gardens’ new tallest building.

The 23-story tower topped out in January, and now workers have finished installing facade panels on the first ten stories. Developer Hudson Companies is constructing the high-rise rentals, which will bring 254 apartments to Flatbush between Fenimore and Hawthorne Streets.

Twenty percent of the apartments, or 51 units, will be set aside for low- and middle-income households, and asking rents will range from $565 for a studio to $1,067 for a three-bedroom. The housing lottery just opened, and interested tenants can apply here through property manager Phipps Houses.

The Marvel Architects-designed project will have 4,700 square feet of ground floor retail along Flatbush, and a 3,500-square-foot health care facility on the second floor. Hudson says construction is expected to finish in early 2016.
