Brookland Capital is building more than 50 rental and condo projects throughout Brooklyn, and now they’re expanding south into Flatbush with this attractive seven-story apartment building at 88-92 Linden Boulevard, between Bedford and Rogers Avenues.
The stacked, glassy structure will hold 66 units, but Brookland’s Boaz Gilad said he’s not sure whether they’ll be rentals or condos. The building will span 60,500 square feet and include 33 parking spots, as zoning requires. Units will be mainly one and two-bedrooms ranging from 620 to 800 square feet. There will also be a gym and common roof deck.
Upper West Side-based Feingold and Gregory Architects will serve as the architect of record, and Chelsea-based RoArt will handle the design. The duo also teamed up on Brookland’s Park Slope condos, which YIMBY revealed last month.
This development will bring a fresh, modern feel to the block, which has typical mix of five- and six-story rental buildings built in the ’20s and ’30s and a row of early 20th century townhouses. While the building makes no attempt to blend in with its neighbors, its design still looks better than much of the new construction we see throughout Flatbush and Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
Plans will be filed with the DOB in July, and the Bed Stuy-based builder expects to break ground sometime this winter.
Although the sale hasn’t hit public records, Gilad told us they closed on the two properties at 88 and 92 Linden for $6,500,000 two weeks ago. TerraCRG handled the sale, repping both the seller and Brookland. The 12,000-square-foot plot is currently home to two two-family homes, and demolition permits have not yet been filed.
Gilad’s other projects in the hood include two planned on Clarkson Avenue, one on Lenox Road, and a seven-story building designed by Issac and Stern under construction at 56 East 21st Street.
